Journal Entry:

Hello! My name is Colin Heinrich, and I'm so excited to have you join me as I travel to Costa Rica! Costa Rica is a little country in Central America, known for being one of the most sustainable places in the world.

I am the Global Impact Manager for my company, which means that my job is to make sure that the work we do is helping to save wildlife, protect ancient cultures, and help solve problems facing communities around the world. I want to preserve our amazing planet so that kids like you can go and see these places, too, someday.

Costa Rica is a great place to do that work! Like I said, it's one of the most sustainable countries in the world. It has some of the coolest looking animals, giant rainforests, and a culture that puts a lot of importance on things like caring for the natural world.

This has been my job for the past four years, but my background in travel goes way further back than that--all the way back, in fact. My dad was in the U.S. Navy, so every two years we moved to a different part of the country for his job. I was born in San Diego, California, and when I was two we moved all the way over to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After a few years there, we moved to Washington, D.C.
