After ten very amazing days in Costa Rica it was time to say Good bye to Costa Rica. Kathryn was heading for the Caribbean Coast, and I was flying back home to Austria. I have to admit that Costa Rica now ranks as one of my favorite countries, as it offers a very rich collection of birds, animals and plants and is easy to travel. The rainforest is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen and I hope it remains like this forever. The unpaved road to Monteverde helps maintaining a balance to keep away the mass tourism, that is changing and often damaging so many other places.
