I did it!

The final day of the 100 day Photo Challenge is finally here, this is been a roller coaster kinda ride, with some very nice up and popular posts and some low, not so exciting ones and all I can say is;

"It's been fun, thanks to all for sticking with me through this whole process!"


Now, for the 100th day it's all about posting my picture (again) and 15 facts about me, in no particular order.

1. I have been in the blogosphere for exactly 2 years today... and counting.

2. Animals, Trees and Plants are in my top 10 of most favorite things.

3. When I eat toast (or a sandwich on toast), I always eat the crust/sides first and then the inside which is the best part.

4. The only time I've ever ride on an ambulance is one time that I went partying with some friends. One my friends is an EMT so the only ride we had that night was the ambulance. We had a fantastic time, but I do have to say that my friend (the EMT) was on call so he wasn't drinking, he was the designated driver!

5. Back in 1998 when I backpacked around Israel and Egypt I had a really nice group of traveler friend from all parts of world (South Africa, Australia, Canada, UK, Yemen and Russia) with me. Still to the day I keep in touch with some of them.

6. One of the saddest day of my life is the day I lost my cat Tica, I still miss her every day and a part of my heart is always with her wherever she might be.

7. My favorite quote ever is "Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today".

8. I've been to the lowest point in earth, being The Death Sea at an elevation of −1,391 ft below sea level, and at the highest point in my country Costa Rica, which is Cerro Chirripo with an elevation of 12,533 ft above sea level. (Next stop: Mount Everest. Yeah right!)

9. When I was a kid I used to suffer from asthma, I tried many remedies and one included eating Brazilian Peanut beetles... I know, don't ask details, LOL! But they cure me, believe it or not.

10.I love photography and what it involves to see something through the lens of a camera and be able to tell a story, make the beholder interpret what they see in their own unique way.

11. I am level 1 in Reiki, which is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

12. When I used to live in Mexico, I worked at Yoga Retreat Resort that used to lodge many "yogis" as well as famous people, so I got to meet: Sienna Miller, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Julia Ormond among others.

13. I've had my few shares of good partying years, and I can even say that during my most "crazy"  years I've even kissed a woman (she is one of my best friends ever, so that kind of makes it worth it!)... We are still very good friends 'till the day and I am glad she's my only one!

14. I love movies and my favorite type are those based in real facts as well as a good comedy.

15. I love to blog and specially read other people's blog, learn about the way others live and how they share their lives with the readers... So I definitely plan to keep on blogging as well as reading for many more years if God allows me to!

Well, I guess with fact #15 I conclude the 100 day Photo Challenge, what an amazing experience this has been, I am so glad I decided to do it and God gave me the strength to do it all without missing a day!

Great quote, and congrats on the 100 day photo challenge completion! I did a Project 365 one year and it was tough to keep up with it. I'm doing a 100 Words in Photos now which is fun because there's no time limit and you can find different ways to be creative. Happy Tuesday and Happy Blog Birthday!

By the way also wanted to say that I share your interest in healing, which I have found to be a vast (life)subject! I am sure you are naturally prone to it, since it is impossible to not feel bright from just looking at your smile and whole radiation :-)))
