From France with love
When I came to Costa Rica from France years ago I never imagined I would be meeting
I born to be a traveler and I was never quite comfortable being at the same place. I traveled to many places around the globe, always looking for new landscapes and experiences. But something happened the day I set a foot on Santa Teresa, suddenly I just feel like home.
Here I never expect to see too many people from my country, my beloved France, but to my surprise, and gladly, I was wrong.
It is funny when you think that maybe I would never meet these fellow countrymen if I would stay in France, but here they are in Costa Rica and I am really happy when I receive visits.
One special case is the visit of a french people I received a month ago, the lovely Leroux Lefranc family, they came all the way from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine, looking for surf lessons here in Santa Teresa. They instantly booked lessons for all the family members.
As a lonely soul, I really appreciate what they make me feel that day, being part of a big family. All that love flowing between the family was really warming my heart. As a surf instructor, I always try to connect with my pupils, but this time It was different, the experience of teaching a whole family was something wonderful for me.
