"Pura Vida," it's literal translation meaning "Pure Life," is the phrase used by the natives of the beautiful lush country of Costa Rica. Best known for it's coffee and banana plantations, Costa Rica is one of the most visited international destinations. With endless touring potential, whether you'd like to go surfing at the beach, take a relaxing dip in a volcanic hot spring, or zip line through a rain forest, Costa Rica won't disappoint. My visit to the "Rich Coast" consisted of a grand tour of must see hot spots. Starting from Costa Rica's capital and largest city, San Jose, we first stopped to taste a traditional meal known as Gallo Pinto, which consists of white rice, black beans, and meat. Our journey continued with a tour through one of it's national parks, a rain forest, and an active volcano, where we relaxed in it's revitalizing hot springs. The visit also consisted of zip lining, boat rides, and the most delicious of meals. Did I mention that most everyone delivers? Yes even McDonalds. Costa Rica is also known for it's extraordinary assortment of tropical animals, such as iguanas, sloths, and even monkeys to name a few. With it's picture perfect landscaping, tantalizing dishes, and it's effortless and infinite means of relaxation, Costa Rica is a must experience destination.

Thinking of visiting London? A number of travelers have expressed to me, that London is one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world. I hear there are plenty of activities to take part in, from speed-boat trips to drag nights, outdoor films and clubs. My client recommends that you take a trip to London's world class attractions, shops and restaurants and enjoy exciting special events, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions and more. Since London has activities all year round, there is no particular "best time" to visit and see all the city has to offer. Be inspired by its month-by-month guide to what's on, weather, shows, shopping, festivals and much, much more. For a first-time visitor, my client recommends visiting the Victoria & Albert Museum, Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace. London doesn't have to be expensive. With loads of free attractions and green spaces, the UK capital can be a very purse-friendly city to visit. Lovers of tradition will adore London's rich history and culture. London has a thriving alternative community and whatever clothes, music and lifestyle you're into, you'll definitely find it there. "The Houses of Parliament across from Big Ben are amazing to see while in London. It’s a London attraction that you can take a walk through. I had an amazing time visiting Westminster in central London".
