Day 1: Costa Rica - The start of traveling the world

 1/30/22 Florida

    Today is the day. Everything I've been working for for the last 6 months is finally coming to fruition. I have finished my lease. I have sold my car and other belongs. Now I have a single backpack filled with everything I need.

    Dad drove me to the airport and we said our goodbyes. I flew from Orlando to Miami, and then Miami to Tamarindo, Costa Rica. I had been in Costa Rica once before but this was my first trip completely by myself the entire time. I found a shuttle that would take me to Tamarindo for a decent price.

    Arriving I checked into a hostel called Selina, a chain of hostels in multiple countries. I had stayed at the Selina in Jaco, Costa Rica and I really liked it there so I figured I'd book it again. 

    Now to meet some backpackers and get settled in. To my surprise there were many solo traveling backpackers from all over the world.
