Panama City

Panama City

Posted from Panamá, Panama, Panama. The bus trip to Panama City from Bocas del Toro was rather uneventful. We stopped for lunch along the way, arriving around dinner time at a shopping centre that also posed as the bus terminal. Our mission was to find a way to our hostel, Villa Vento Surf. I had […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

the grand sites of Rome

the grand sites of Rome

Posted from Rome, Lazio, Italy. My final day in the Eternal City was reserved for seeing the grand sites of Rome. It was early May, 24 degrees, and the sun was ever so bold. The weather was holding out perfectly for more walking. And walk I did, already clocking some 48,000 steps on my Vivofit the past two […]

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 […]

winter begins in Queenstown

winter begins in Queenstown

Posted from Queenstown Hill, Otago, New Zealand. It took seven years, but here I am, in July, sipping coffee in a (remarkably) quiet coffee shop at the Remarkables Shopping Center in Frankton, New Zealand, looking at a vista of snow-strewn mountains (also called the Remarkables) wondering if I’ll ever be warm again. My flat white […]

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 […]
