I have an iPhone8, one of the fabulous birthday gifts I received last October. I love it but I don't know how to use all of it's wonderful functions, yet. Last night I heard it make a ping noise and when I checked it, there was a notification that said I had a new 'Memory'. I clicked and it took me to an album named Memories. I found (and in no particular order) that pictures and bits of my saved Snapchat videos from my Costa Rica trip had been put together as a video montage, complete with music. I couldn't believe my phone did that. It was as if it was alive with feelings. Even though I just got back from Costa Rica a week ago, I got a little emotional watching it. I thought "Wow, I did all that? That's my adventure?!" It was a feeling of happiness mixed with gratitude that gave me that fuzzy feeling. I even said "awe, thank you smartphone. You really are smart." lol.
My niece told me I should share it. When I explained that most of these pictures had already been shared on my snapchat and FB & IG, she suggested I post on my website, and so I decided to officially start my blog with this video. There is a tiny clip of my baby niece after she crawled into my suitcase when I was packing. I like it because getting ready for the adventure should be included as part of an adventure, in my opinion. So next time you're getting ready for a trip, take pictures or videos of the moments leading up to your departure as well. This video is a little over 3 minutes long. Credits to the different places & people can be found in my Costa Rica page, if you click on the pictures. I'll write more about them individually later. So here I am, last week near Liberia City in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica. I journeyed there alone, planned it all just 3 weeks prior, I went a little scared but feeling brave. Every little part of my trip was an unforgettable experience and now I have this cool video to prove it. All Pictures and videos I took myself but my very smart and sentimental iphone8 gets the credit for putting it all together. Unedited, and I think it's pretty good! "Pura Vida."
