Airline Tickets!

We have now gotten out air line tickets for Costa Rica! I am so excited. We are flying out of

U.S AIRWAYS in Boston on April 6th! Now the trip feels more real to me because sometimes it felt like we where just talking about going, but now our names are on the tickets! It will be my first time on a plan for that i am both excited and nerves! The trip will be about a 7 hour plane ride and then 3 hours to get to the top of Monteverde. I think about this trip almost everyday and cant wait to finally get there! We still need a little bit more money to make our goal we are currently at $13,6000 we would like to get to $15,000 if you would like to help and make our goal happen you could send a check to 35 Sherburne Road, Portsmouth NH-03801.

Passport and planning

I am very excited to say that over Christmas vacation I got my passport! The trip is getting close and as it gets closer I get more excited but I also get a little nervous as well. Our class has recently started to plan out what we are going to do wile in Costa Rica and when we are going to do it. We are planning on leaving on April 6th and coming back around the 16th.

While in Costa Rica we are planning to stay in Monteverde for about 6 days and then leave to go to the coast for a few days. I am most excited to go to the coast because I love the beach. I would love to be able to go on a nice boat. Some of my peers in the class would really like to go Scuba diving so I was thinking maybe that could tie into the boat ride.
We are getting closer to our trip but we are still a little bit short on the money. We currently have $13,500 and we are looking to get about $15,000. If you would like to donate to us please contact our website or send a check to 35 Sherburne Road Portsmouth NH 03801. Please have checks made out to Lister Academy Costa Rica Class.

thanks for taking time to read this please keep checking for more. I will be updating a lot!
