At the beginning of the month, a special crew went on a collaborative project over seas to Costa Rica. The 5 Day journey was filled with incredible food, warm weather, a villa we never wanted to leave, and days of shooting in beautiful places. We were fortunate to spend El Nino, not in El Nino, and let a plane take us on our first adventure of the New Year.
Alas, these new pieces that you saw behind the scenes of are here and while I could rave about each piece, what means the most to me are the people that joined this hunt. With a lot of work ahead of us each day, every one did an amazing job. As young entrepreneurs, creatives, and people who carry passion in all that they do, the eclectic group made moments that will last forever through these pictures.
Each soul brought something unique on this trip - we all learned so much about ourselves, the impossible roads of a new country, and what we as young people can achieve. And when I say achieve, I'm not limiting the 2 hour journey it took us to get to point A to point B day 1 (see Zack's Vlog Below!). Let's just say never did we think we would be getting lost within the first few hours of traveling, with no phone service, but hey thanks to some serious team work and a black stallion we made it to our beautiful Villa, Villa Kanda.
Our adventures took us on land through the towns and dirt roads (yes, Costa Rica has ZERO paved roads so never drive around in a car that is not equipped with 4 wheel drive). We didn't stop at the roads and put it full throttle through the sand along the coast to find the bluest water. Shoutout to Ben for taking the wheel as Zack surfed the top to get the ultimate video footage. If you were with us on snapchat, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
It was fun and exciting to be working with your friends, but what is even more inspiring is when each person is bringing a different card to the table to create and build a vision. Creativity is unleashed and a glimpse into the new generation we are creating as entrepreneurs is first hand.
I could go on about the appreciation and thanks I have for these kids, but I'll let some pictures do the talking and share with you a little bit behind the scenes of the days and nights in Costa Rica. I hope you enjoy what the Treasure Hunt has landed and you can now shop the looks here :)
