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 […]

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 […]

San Juan to Santa Teresa

San Juan to Santa Teresa

Posted from Address not found. The lowdown There are a lot of ways to get from San Juan to Santa Teresa. This is how I did it in one day. I have to also mention that luck was on my side. If my taxi driver hadn’t have shown up 15 minutes early, I wouldn’t have happened […]

Antigua to Leon

Antigua to Leon

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. The trip from Antigua to Leon was long and trying.

Our tour leader, Islam (yes, that’s his name,) was giving us advice and information about what would happen and how things work, but it was difficult to pay attention. The medley of traffic was […]

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 […]

Antigua

Antigua

Posted from Warsaw, Sacatepéquez Department, Guatemala. The drive to Antigua from Lake Atitlan was like all travel through Guatemala – unpredictable. About 10 minutes after leaving San Pedro we hit a road block. Construction was occurring, and we were told it could be hours until traffic would be allowed to pass. Luckily, there was a guy […]

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 […]
