Adventures, Experiences, and mistakes; all crucial things that shape and mold our lives. From thrilling zip lining to relaxing hot springs all of us were always together. Costa Rica was definitely a memory that will never be forgotten. Together as team we all bonded so well with not only each other but also the coaching staff, trainer, yourself, and the parents. It was a bit of a drag during the trip traveling three to four hours as well as waking up at eight every morning. Looking back at it now we really accomplished more things than the ordinary person would on a vacation/ soccer tour. Not only did we play a series of games but also we traveled to some of the most beautiful historical places of the country. The trip was in a way split up into two sections. The first week we played two games and were on the coast of the country. The next week we traveled more inland to a more tropical and beautiful view where we played two more games, one of those being against a very popular team in Costa Rica. Everyday we grew further and further away from segregation. Its not that no one likes each other it is just for the most part the same people usually hangout with the same people, which is pretty normal. But as time went on things began to mesh and there would be different people hanging out with different people. They announced our rooming pairs as we sat in the coach’s office the night of the flight. “Christian, Bryce, Leon”, Krumpe said, “Oh shit”, I thought to my self. Christian was never going to shut up the whole trip about how he hooked up with this girl and that girl. Bryce just looked at me and shook his head with similar thoughts going through his head. We then grabbed our luggage and took off to the airport for our red eye flight to El Salvador. During our layover before going to Guanacaste, Costa Rica, we all took the opportunity of getting some rest and sleeping till then.
Our first stop was at the Flamingo Beach Resort in Guanacaste,
