rainy Bocas del Toro

rainy Bocas del Toro

Posted from Bocas del Toro Province, Provincia de Bocas del Toro, Panama. Bocas, oh Bocas. Why oh why did you rain on me Bocas? Really. It was a bit much. The surge in Bocas del Toro was unusually high. A system was moving through that created bigger than normal waves, so a few surfers from […]

Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa

Posted from Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica. Friends of mine have been going to Costa Rica for years. Some particularly go to Santa Teresa, a surf destination on the west coast.  I’ve heard so many good things about this country, that it was a relief to finally step foot here and see what all the fuss […]

San Juan Del Sur

San Juan Del Sur

Posted from San Juan del Sur, Rivas Department, Nicaragua. San Juan Del Sur can be described in two words, Sunday Funday. Of which I did not participate. Why? Well, as I get a bit long in the tooth, going to pool parties that are teeming with 20-somethings begins to feel a little like I’m trying […]

Lovely León

Lovely León

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. After arriving rather late in León after 17 or 18 hours on the road, we were write-offs for the first night. There was some kind of a party going on in the bar at our hostel, but I think I was passed out by 10 p.m. The next day, however, […]

Tulum

Tulum

Posted from Quintana Roo, Mexico. We left Cancun around 11 a.m., not really in a rush to get to Tulum, but not wanting to waste the entire day. Tulum is about two to three hours from Cancun and is synonymous with hippies, yoga retreats, and people who live on spirituality and once a week showers. […]

can you Cancun?

can you Cancun?

Making Cancun my introduction to Mexico probably wasn’t the best idea. Why? It’s a tourist zone. Plain and simple. But in order to begin our trip from Yucatan to Panama City, we had to start somewhere. Where could travel be more efficient than a place filled with heaps of tourists? From the airport to downtown […]

Iceland stopover

Iceland stopover

Just south of the Arctic Circle, in the middle of the north Atlantic lays Iceland, an old country filled with vikings, volcanoes, and sheep. This northern land is most recently famous for the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 that caused air traffic chaos, but it has other claims of fame like singer Björk, and the Blue Lagoon, […]

sleepy Koh Chang

sleepy Koh Chang

Posted from Ko Chang, Trat, Thailand. I need to face facts. While I do love the country and being in the wilderness, the city-girl in me can only go so long without my bright lights and chaos before I begin to wonder if civilization has imploded. After one quiet, relaxing and mosquito bite-filled week in Koh Mak […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
