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 […]

An old friend in San Jose

An old friend in San Jose

Posted from Heredia Province, Costa Rica. From Santa Teresa I headed to San Jose to see an old friend. I didn’t have much plans for San Jose, just two nights. My journey to the big city was a rather disappointing, and over-priced shuttle experience. Santa Teresa is a bit out of the way, making it a […]

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, […]

travel through Guatemala

travel through Guatemala

Posted from Santa Rosa Department, Guatemala. The smell of smoke constantly lingers in the air. It follows you like a cloud and it’s not just because every tourist has taken up smoking again – packs are about two dollars. But as we drift these streets I’ve come to learn the difference between wood smoke and plastic […]

San Pedro La Laguna

San Pedro La Laguna

Posted from San Pedro La Laguna, Sololá Department, Guatemala. Getting there The race to San Pedro la Laguna on Lake Atitlan was a thing onto itself. We were told the journey would take 10 hours, (plus the boat ride) but someone else told us to count on 14 hours. The issue was the boats stop […]

Semuc Champey

Semuc Champey

Posted from Alta Verapaz Department, Guatemala. Getting there I spent most of my birthday in a van. We left Flores for Lanquin, the village near Semuc Chempey, at 8 a.m. The thing we’re learning about driving through Guatemala is it takes nearly forever to go anywhere. Through almost all cities, villages, and bizarre places there […]

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 […]

three days in Rome

three days in Rome

Posted from Roma, Lazio, Italy. Three days in Rome? That’s it? The spring of 2016 was very tumultuous, like off-the-hook upside-down life-changing crazy. If I were any other person I may have spent a lot of that time in bed trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life, but I […]

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 […]
