Trip: Panama travels

There are [11] stories from my trip: Panama travels


PANAMA | Sunday, 14 Nov 2010 | Views [826]

Here I am at Hostal Bastimentos sipping my third or fourth pipa (what a coconut full of water is called out here), quenching my thirst. Damn it tastes good! Much better than a can of Red Bull! And it's only 25 cents. Here in Panama I've drunk heaps ... Read more >

Cold day in Bocas

PANAMA | Saturday, 13 Nov 2010 | Views [1262]

Today I was actually shivering! Despite the fact that I'm only 500 miles or so north of the Equator, I was cold! It was stormly out there in the islands that mean "mouth of the bull" in Spanish. As I got a bottle of water and some tasty papaya ... Read more >

Red Frogs of Bastimentos

PANAMA | Friday, 12 Nov 2010 | Views [4604]

Ahhhh, Isla Bastimentos! My favourite island of the Bocas archipelago. Of all my fine moments in Panama, seeing the colourful red frogs of Bastimentos must be my finest Panamanian moment. One to celebrate over a cold beer or a warm cuppa. For years ... Read more >

Baby-Boom Town

PANAMA | Sunday, 7 Nov 2010 | Views [1860] | Comments [1]

Pitch-black, raining, and at 11:00 PM or so, I was finally in Boquete. It's the first stop of my Panamanian journey (other than getting my entry stamp). Ellen advised me not to try to get to her place because there were absolutely no lights out there.... Read more >

Into Panama

PANAMA | Saturday, 6 Nov 2010 | Views [1753]

As I walked across a bridge that seemed to be hastily put together, big-rigs were driving across yet there are holes that make it easy enough to lose your camera or passport forever! Hold on tight to your stuff and watch your step! This is how my travels ... Read more >

COSTA RICA | Thursday, 4 Nov 2010 | Views [850]

Four days of rain have passed, and for the past couple of days there've been no buses to Panama via Paso Canoas or Rio Sereno since the road is washed out. Rain and thunder have wreaked havoc all over the Land of Pura Vida; all last night I listened ... Read more >
