Leaving – Costa Rica

Leaving Costa Rica was bittersweet. I was sad to leave behind all the great experiences I had but I was also happy to be coming home to see my family and friends again. Some of our group decided to stay and continue their travels. We boarded our bus and drove to the airport. Almost everyone had the same flight. While waiting for the departure flight, one of the flight crew decided to joke around saying, “your flight is canceled.” Not many people found that funny and it caused a little bit of a commotion. Following that, we were able to board the plane with no issues and arrive in Miami while waiting many hours for a connecting flight to Tampa. Going through Customs took a long time. We grabbed some food and talked about the trip while waiting. Finally, around 12:00 am the next day we arrived in Tampa, and all waited around the baggage carousel. The following day, I went back to work, getting used to being back in the United States.

An interesting note, a fellow student got a rock stuck in their shoe while in Costa Rica and it traveled all the way back to the United States.
