Since 2015 I somehow managed to create a new travel tradition.
To spend my birthday each year in a new country and another continent:
2015 Africa / South Africa
2016 South America / Brazil
2017 North America / México
2018 Oceania / Palau
2019 Africa / Kenya
2020 Europe-Asia / Turkey
2021 North America / Costa Rica
In December 2021, despite the whole Sars-Covid-19 pandemic, in a lot of countries in North, Central and South America, they were more flexible towards people who got twice vaccinated and no mandatory quarantine.
So first I flew to Cancún, México and days later, I flew to Costa Rica.
Each year, the challenge is to be on my birthday to be on a memorable or iconic spot, so for 2021 I have chosen the iconic hanging bridges in Monteverde, Costa Rica.
