Now I've always been someone who doesn't really judge what other people are doing. I've always just sat back and gone “well if they’re living their life and that makes them happy it’s none of my business”. And I do think that still, in most ways.
But as I've started becoming more aware of my impact on the world, whether that be through the clothes I wear being made at sweatshops or the treatment of animals in the dairy and meat industry or the impact of plastic on the environment. I've started to change my behaviour and attitude. Which I am proud of (though I'm far from perfect at any of it, it’s a start).

Giving up judgement of others… and myself

Now I've always been someone who doesn't really judge what other people are doing. I've always just sat back and gone “well if they’re living their life and that makes them happy it’s none of my business”. And I do think that still, in most ways.
But as I've started becoming more aware of my impact on the world, whether that be through the clothes I wear being made at sweatshops or the treatment of animals in the dairy and meat industry or the impact of plastic on the environment.

It's the Fourth Costa Rica instalment  and it's time to start talking about some of the time I spent out of the rescue centre, and all that jazzy fun stuff. As part of the volunteering you had one day off a week (though you could take more if you really wanted) so for my first two weeks this trip was my two days off and eight of us decided to spend a night in Jaco. It was so nice to get out and go to the beach, and also to have a night out, which was definitely an experience in itself.
We stayed at a Hostel called Beds on Bohio which was super nice, so keep reading for more about that and Jaco itself.

So, as I've been a vegan for a while, and living in Cardiff all my life I thought I'd do something useful and make a guide for shopping and eating as a vegan in Cardiff.
Despite being a small City Cardiff is actually very vegan friendly. With our own vegan store, some vegetarian and vegan restaurants and plenty of chain restaurants offering vegan menus.

So I'm back with the second instalment of my Costa Rica posts ( with probably another 4 or 5 to come over the next two months). And this is all about the place I spent most of my time, Costa Rica Animal Rescue Centre.
Of the 6 weeks I was in costa rica for 5 I called this place my home. And it was such a wonderful experience being there, interacting and helping with animals and meeting lots of people.
But as it was 5 weeks of my life, I'm not quite sure where to start
