When I decided to attend Digital Design Days in February 2019, I was very curious and excited to see that such an event took place in my city. It’s always nice to see projects and activities that support creativity and new ideas as well as the use of modern technologies in our everyday life.
SEP Jordan is a brand, but most importantly, it is a social enterprise. By wearing one of the keffiyehs, you share a story. It’s a story of empowerment, craftsmanship, and hope.
Roberta Ventura, co-founder, and CEO of SEP Jordan has decided to create a company that will bring employment as a serious alternative to aid.
I discovered SEP Jordan through a friend of mine a year ago. We were talking about brands that instead of trying to only make a profit, focus on making a difference.
Hacienda Barrigona has so far been the most luxury hotel we visited in Costa Rica. It’s situated in the Guanacaste province in the Nicoya Peninsula, less than an hour drive from the cities of Samara and Nosara. How do I define luxury? Privacy, limited wifi, breathtaking setting, and kind people.
It’s hard to say what I like the most about Costa Rica. There are so many fun things one can do: watching sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach, humpback whales dance in the sea or to swim with dolphins. If you don’t have the time or come at the right period (especially if you want to see the turtles), you can always visit one of the many Costa Rican volcanos. Some of them are very close to the capital and easy to access.
Volcano Irazú is one of them. It’s located above Cartago city (an hour drive from San Jose) and easy to access. I recommend avoiding Sunday as that’s the day for Costa Ricans to visit national parks.
