It began on a vacation to Costa Rica. Nate and I spent two weeks in the country, exploring the jungle and beaches. The trip was totally incredible, but on our last night before leaving on a crazy early flight, we were tapped out.
Instead of hitting the town for dinner and nightlife, we stayed in and ordered pizza. We put on robes, ate in bed, and watched HGTV. It was glorious.
To this day, it's our ritual on long trips. After spending two or three weeks living out of a suitcase, navigating a language, and exploring new cuisine, there's nothing better than this last night.
