Crocodile Bay Resort, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica.
Back in April, I got a phone call. "Can you swing nine days of vacation in June? You can? Great! Do you have a passport? You do? Great! We'll send information soon, but not much, and keep this trip a secret."
Throughout the month of May, I got a questions about sizing clothes and shoes, a short packing list, and one-way plane tickets to and from Atlanta. In early June, a duffel full of brightly colored Columbia PFG and casual apparel arrived. A week later, a smaller duffel with Spring '16 Columbia PFG and active apparel arrived, complete with laminated cards with outfits I'd need to wear on specific days of the trip.
But as far as information about where I were going, what I'd be doing, and who else was coming, I was kept almost completely in the dark.
