The only bad thing about volunteering at Planet Costa Rica was having to stay good bye to all the animals and to the lovely hosts Allan and Patri. Me and my boyfriend Guy had the best time at the farm, experiencing things we never thought we were gonna experience ever in our lives, like chopping down banana trees with a machete and helping a dog with water therapy, just to name a couple of things.
Even though I've been vegan for the past 5 years or so, I learned so much about vegan food, cooking and got to taste fruit and veggies which I cannot even pronounce but that was so delicious that the food back home doesn't seem at all exciting anymore. What I take with me home though, is a greater knowledge of healthy vegan cooking, I know so much more about animal care in general and I must say myself that I can call myself an expert in building that fence from sticks in the woods (Palomo the horse loved to make it more challenging for me by trying to knock it down from time to time).
It would honestly be stupid to miss out of coming here.
Thanks for everything again Allan and Patri, we miss you and you are the coolest inspiration ever.
