What is your favorite travel memory?

Specifically though, we had a student who was a classical musician play a concert at the school. He met a lot of people and made some great connections in Costa Rica. Since returning to the States, he's kept in touch with them and is planning to return to play a show at some of the larger music-halls in Costa Rica. Very cool.
