I love to travel and I've thought about going to Cuba for a long time. The culture, music, sights, colonial buildings, the people... I could go on and on. The country did not disappoint. I got back a week ago and I can't wait for the next trip there. I don't know when but I will be going back one day. It was important to me to go now because the resorts and American money are literally laying in wait which will more than likely take away from the beautiful culture... in my opinion.
After settling into the villa with everyone, Brian and I went down south about an hour to the trail of the Nauyaca Waterfalls. We drove on the trail until you couldn't drive anymore and then headed up towards the falls. The hike was about 2.5 miles straight up and was arguably the toughest thing I had done since being in Costa Rica. It wasn't the hike itself, although that was tough too. What made the hike tough was the heat. I felt like I had never sweat that much in my whole life. We finally get to the top and there it was... one of the best adventures I'll ever have.
My two friends Kristin and Rick and getting married in Manuel Antonio in Central Pacific area of Costa Rica and I'm lucky enough to shoot it. In fact, I'm so lucky, they decided to have a 2nd shooter and I brought the one.. the only... Brian Mallik. Brian and I decided to have a two day adventure before meeting up with everyone back down in Manuel Antonio. We got a little hotel in Alajuela called La Rosa de America and it's rad. At breakfast I remembered how amazing and fresh the fruit is. After a few cups of coffee we headed out to Poas Volcano.
I love sports. I'm kind of a nut to be honest. Especially when it comes to baseball and the Denver Broncos. My Wife Alysen loves sports and loves the Broncos but even she can feel a little embarrassed when I'm screaming at the TV saying "why aren't we running the ball?!?!?!". Needless to say I was pretty, pretty pumped up about them beating down the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50
