If you appreciate pure nature, are interested in observing wildlife and love relaxing on beautiful beaches watching an incredible sunset, then Costa Rica should be on your travel bucket list.
Manuel Antonio National Park faces the Pacific Ocean in central Costa Rica. This part of Costa Rica encompasses rugged rainforests, white sandy beaches and coral reefs. Costa Rica is known for its vast diversity of tropical flowers and animals. The National Park is roughly 680 hectares huge and has a variety of different hiking trails, which lead you from the coast up into the mountains.
If you are keen on hiking through the rain forest, you want to make sure you can see all the wildlife and not missing out on anything. I, therefore, recommend booking a guided tour through the rain forest. The guides use a large telescope and know the forest and their inhabitants inside out. They spot tiny little animals you would have never guessed finding on your own.
Enjoy the journey through the rainforest in Manuel Antonio National Park:
Costa Rica has some fascinating wildlife to see in the rainforests:
Besides the tropical animals you will notice the most beautiful colourful flowers in the rainforest:
Costa Rica has also plenty of options to go on boat trips for snorkelling in the coral reef. On the way you might be lucky to see dolphins and whales:
Now you have seen so much from this wonderful region of Costa Rica, the beautiful colourful flowers and cute, exotic wildlife. It is time to relax on the beach in Manuel Antonio National Park enjoying the sunset.

Life is not worth living without love. Love doesn’t just mean between partners; it also means loving family, friends and animals.
Love starts with accepting and loving yourself first. Only when you love yourself, you will be able to give love to others. If you hate yourself, why would somebody else like you? So start from there. Be confident, look into the mirror each morning when you get up and every night before you go to bed and say out loud how awesome and beautiful you are. Sounds silly but helps with your confidence. Nobody is perfect, not even the fashion models. Their photographer knows how to fix things in Photoshop – believe me:) Beauty comes from your inside and your smile.
Love and live your life to its fullest potential. Loving yourself helps you attracting the right people into your life. Your life starts to improve. Try it, you have nothing to lose.
“Where there is love there is life.” – Mahatma Gandhi
I heard this question several times and I really needed to sit back and think about it. What is home? Is home where your family is, where you currently live or where you were born?
When I made the decision to leave my German roots behind to move to Australia I got a very interesting farewell present. It was a painting of an anatomic heart in a house. The meaning behind this is:
‘Home is where your heart is’
There is no better answer to that question than this. Where ever you feel your heart currently is, is called home. For me it is Sydney. My heart is here where my friends are, where I pursue all my hobbies. I love that country and my friends here; I cannot imagine to live anywhere else in this moment. I am not saying this has to be like this forever, situations can change and I am open minded. However, my heart is currently in Australia even though I miss my family. Luckily nowadays technologies allow you to be connected with them where ever they are.
What I love about Sydney is definitely the better weather and the beaches:
and the beautiful animals:
Of course Sydney wouldn’t be anything without the famous opera house and the variety of festivals.
