Costa Rica, where do I begin? You have been the most incredible adventure. I have learned more than I could have imagined about wildlife and conservation. I have seen some pretty amazing sights, from a puma and an ocelot, to green and olive ridley turtles nesting and hundreds of hatchlings, to tamanduas and kinkajous, to all the manakin species.

Whether it’s about animals, people or cultures – all humans share a common desire: We want to paint the black-and-white globe we have in our mind.

Satisfy your inner wanderlust and break out your daily routine. Sabbaticals, also known as adult gap years, enjoy growing popularity amongst professionals. No wonder, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that allows working people to go on an extended period away from work without losing employment.
