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 […]

Onward to Bocas del Toro

Onward to Bocas del Toro

Posted from Guabito, Bocas del Toro Province, Panama. After a short visit in San Jose to see an old friend, I decided to make my way to Bocas del Toro, a pristine beach paradise in Panama. Plus, there was the added fact that immigration only gave me eight days in Costa Rica, so I had […]

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, […]

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 […]

Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker

Posted from Belize. Belize has a bad rap. But Caye Caulker is a place onto its own. We had heard about the island through other back packers, and decided we would heed their advice and head to the spot of land after Tulum. The journey there was interesting, landing us on Caye Caulker at 9:30 a.m. From […]

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. […]

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, […]

serene Doubtful Sound

serene Doubtful Sound

Posted from Fiordland National Park, Southland, New Zealand. There are moments when I travel. Moments so real I know leaving my house, taking time off work, and making my way halfway around the world to explore some minuscule location were the right choices. These moments are what we live for, aren’t they? Well, they’re one […]

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 […]
