Hola Amigos 😊
Today I am writing you from sunny Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica. I have had an incredible week volunteering with Latin America Sea Turtles / SEE Turtles and I can’t wait to share it with you! Here are the highlights:
Pura Vida 🌴
Costa Rica is full of some of the kindest people I have ever met while travelling. Costa Ricans use the phrase “Pura Vida” to greet each other and say everything’s great in life. The translation directly means “pure life” or “simple life.” ☀️ I think it is so beautiful as it represents the country so well. I am feeling so fulfilled and rejuvenated 🌿💛
SEE Turtles 🐢
I am so happy to have fulfilled one of my 2018 goals this past week and that was to volunteer with sea turtles. I not only wanted to raise money for the cause (which you can help by clicking here), but I wanted to give back through my own time an energy. In turn this trip has been one of the most rewarding I have ever taken. I only wish I had taken the time to explore volunteer trips sooner! If you are interested in volunteering with sea turtles then check out SEE Turtles – they offer rewarding trips in stunning locations all over the world 🐢❤️🌴
We spotted a SLOTH!
Turtles aren’t the only wildlife I have been hanging out with this week, we actually spotted a sloth in the wild 😮 how incredible! And cute 😊 Costa Rica is full of animals and it will be a miracle if I don’t return home with one… 😋
A Plastic Ocean
As part of the volunteer program this week we watched the documentary “A Plastic Ocean” which was extremely well-done. Through this documentary I have been inspired even more to take care of our beaches, water and to eliminate my plastic waste as a human, and of course continue a vegan diet. I highly recommend watching this documentary to anyone any everyone. It is so powerful when we open our eyes to the problems our behaviours have caused in this world 🌎 in this way and this way only can we be inspired to make positive change. I am happy to report part of the volunteer duties this week has been beach-cleans. I know this is something I will partake in even if I am not on a volunteer project. ❤️
#ZOVEMBER is here!
This week on November 1st, 2018 the second annual #Zovember series has started on my YouTube channel! 😄 This is my yearly challenge of posting 1 video per day for 30 days. This year’s theme can be found in my Welcome to #Zovember video – check it out here!
PS – I am raising money for SEE Turtle’s Billion Baby Turtles Campaign. My goal is to raise $2,500 by the end of 2018. Every little bit counts as $1 can save up to 5 turtle hatchlings 🐢 ❤️ Click here for more information on how you can contribute.
