WHAT I DO ON MY DAY OFF

Written by: Daisy

Translated by: Anjelica

 

On my day off, I like to do the following:

 

  • Visit family

 

When I have several days off, I usually go to La Francia (the town where I grew up) to visit my family, especially my mom.

 

When I go home, my mom normally makes my favorite foods; so, from the moment I arrive, I start trying a little of this and a little of that.

 

I usually go with my mom to run errands in Siquirres (located about 10 minutes from town) and to any doctor appointment she may have, and I help with the chores at home (so that she can rest for a bit).

 

I have a very good relationship with my mom, which is why I really enjoy spending time with her.

 

  • Go shopping

 

I love to go shopping, so sometimes I go to Ciudad Quesada to treat myself to a little something.

 

I take the bus to Ciudad Quesada around mid-morning to visit my favorite shops and shoe stores.

 

After shopping for a few hours, I stop for lunch—usually pizza since it is one of my favorite foods.

 

And, at the end of the day, I take the bus back to La Fortuna.

 

  • Escape to the beach

 

One of my favorite places is the beach, which is why I escape there every chance I get.

 

I have made one-day trips several times to Puntarenas “El Puerto” ("The Harbor"). I leave La Fortuna early in the morning, I stop for breakfast at Restaurante El Jardín (The Garden Restaurant), and then I enjoy the sea and sand for a few hours.

 

My visit to “The Harbor” wouldn’t be complete without enjoying a Churchill and a Vigoron (two of the region’s traditional dishes) before returning to La Fortuna.

 

My most recent little escape to the beach was to Playas del Coco (Coconut Beach) in Guanacaste. When I got there, the town was celebrating the annexation of Guanacaste, so they had marimbas (wooden xylophones), food, traditional dances, etc.

 

It was a relaxing little escape during which I had the opportunity to enjoy the beach and experience another little piece of Costa Rica at the same time.

 

  • Rest

Sometimes, I enjoy not doing anything at all—a true “day of rest.”

 

This kind of day consists of me waking up a little late, enjoying a delicious breakfast, watching TV, calling my mom, reading fashion articles on the internet, and spending the day enjoying the tranquility of my apartment.

 

I take advantage of the time off to spoil myself and I schedule an appointment to get my nails done or, better yet, to go relax in one of the area’s hot springs.

 

There is nothing better than ending the day in a hot spring jacuzzi, enjoying a drink and then later eating a delicious dinner before heading back to the apartment to sleep (but not before thanking God for one more day of life).

 

Then, I go to sleep to recharge my batteries for the following day.
