The alarm went off incredibly early for us to meet our 4 a.m. transport to the airport. Again, way too short a stay in San Jose and the Hotel Le Bergerac. Ah well, perhaps the measure of a successful vacation is the desire to return.
As my sleepy eyed travelers climb into the van and we are whisked away to the airport, we are not only returning with suitcases of dirty laundry but fun filled memories of wonderful places, awesome activities, and fantastic experiences we shared. Soon my husband and I will be back at our jobs, our children will be back to college, but I know for all of us, there will be those moments when we drift back to our fabulous adventures in Costa Rica, and we will smile.
