      Nice work Aaron! I just read your blog (specifically, your recent post on the RIU in Costa Rica) and it is great to see that you have started writing about your travel experiences. In learning that you have been to so many countries already (by the age of 15), you’re bound to know this world inside and out by the time you’re our age. We wish you fun travels and look forward to reading about them on your site. Let us know if you ever make it back to Costa Rica one day.
