We are the 2 students from Sweden named Bojan Glavas and Petra Stuart. We are doing our internship at Hacienda Guachipelin working with different tours and around the hotel. The internship at hacienda Guachipelin is for 7 weeks. Both of us study tourism at the midSweden university and we have 1 year left in school after this term. We are both very interested in adventure and ecotourism and that is why we are here. Costa Rica is very different in both climate and the culture from Sweden and we are here to explore it.
Here we are now and we’re going to write about our adventures in Costa Rica and especially about what we do here at the hotel.
Pura Vida, Bojan and Petra
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
