"Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads, and dare to carry that out in your life" -Swami Vivekananda
There is a passion here.
An eagerness to see, touch, taste, and feel all of everything. A crazy, unexplained urge to get in a car and drive everywhere and nowhere all at once. To share a meal with friends, chase monsoons across the desert, and stand in the pouring rain in the middle of a highway (we also have Chinese fire drills in these downpours... don't you?)
That said, there is also a life here.
An everyday, ordinary life (queue Hogan Family theme song... yes I just aged myself) that consists of a child, her school, my work, our commitments. In between I have created these moments to step away, refuel our bodies, and reset our senses. I have found a way to temper my desire to just keep going, my impulse to allow my adrenaline to take control, and to share in my heart's wants with my daughter. I have come to find a happy balance between the two worlds. Here, in these pages, I share this balance with you. I invite you to partake in my adventures and maybe find inspiration in your own. At Journey's Entrance, the door is always open.
Check out the photos below for links to my newest journey, Costa Rica, or to see who I've chosen to feature for March!
Oh Costa Rica.. let me count the ways I love you. Seriously though, if you haven't been and are considering it, or have, but can't wait to get back like me, keep reading to uncover where we stayed and what we found. From waterfall rappelling to cliff jumping, white water rafting and horseback rides... discover a world of beauty, a world of simplicity, that is known for Pura Vida!
Susan and Jim are husband and wife who love to travel and have a taste for the finer side of it. I can safely say you will not be reading about my mom sleeping in a tent. Yes, you read that right. Travel runs deep in this family. You will however, follow their travels through Berlin's history, culture, art, and architecture.
