A Swedish student exploring Costa Rica
You might wonder who I am and what I’m doing in Costa Rica. So I’m going to tell you. My name is Camilla Ödling and I’m a twenty two year old student from Sweden. Back at home, in the north of Sweden, I study tourism. That is my main reason for coming here. I’m doing a seven week internship in Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin to exchange experience and meet new people. This is my first time on this side of the Atlantic and also the first time I travel alone. In my country winter just started and temperature is below zero so I’m enjoying the Costa Rican climate more then you can imagine. Obviously this is very different for me, with a completely different culture and also the fact that most of the people here only speak Spanish.
During my remaining four weeks in the hotel I’m going to write articles about my time here. I’m going to tell you all about the adventures, the food, the volcano, the beaches, the animals and much more. I hope that you will enjoy it.
Pura Vida, Camilla
