  • DAY 129-132 PANAMA CITYAfter another breaky of bananas and pancakes we taxied to a nearby town where Mel and I caught an eight hour bus to Panama city and Carrie and Will caught a flight. We arrived at our Bahia Suites hotel and walked Posted by Markandmel2016 in Central America | Jul 5, 2017

  • DAY 123 CROSSING THE BORDER INTO PANAMAMy sister Carrie saves the day, bringing peanut butter, shampoo for Mel buying a laptop and camera from England and Will buying me clothes. Legends!!!!

  • We are almost at the EquatorFebruary 6: Another day at sea. We are cruising at about 10 nautical knots. About 20 miles an hour. An for Canadians, 30 k an hour. In other words we are taking our time to get there. We are at Posted by michelbouchard in We will be touring ALL the Carribeans (Feb. 2010) this time.... | Feb 5, 2010

  • Boquete Flower FestivalVisited the Boquete Flower and Coffee Festival: yearly, lasts ten days. Wasn't impressed: not that many flowers, didn't see any coffee. Mostly food stands and knick-knack shops, and big stage area for all night music. This is Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Jan 18, 2017
  • Bambuda LodgeHung around Bubba's 'til checkout. Went to Bocas Town for transfer to Solarte. Visited with my dive instructor. Got on a boat to Solarte. Bambuda Lodge sits on the hill about 30yds up from the dock. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 22, 2016
  • Christmas EveHiked the island looking for a couple of small beaches. More mud and hills, but not as bad as Bastimentos. What should have been a two hour hike turned into a five hour trek: the trails are not Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 23, 2016
  • New Year's Eve 2016Asked around all week for a New Year's Eve party. Seems only private home parties, or partying in the streets and setting off fireworks. When at Bambuda, I had asked them: they said 'maybe'. I knew a Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 30, 2016
  • Hangover dayAfter last night, I wasn't feeling too chipper. Just hung around reading and chatting. Only ate half my turkey dinner, and I never pass on food. All the girls dressed up for dinner: nice dresses. Wish Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 24, 2016
  • CloudyFeeling much better today. Was wanting to do some snorkeling, but the clouds kind of ruin the colors. And we had showers on and off for the whole day. So another day of sitting around chatting and Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 25, 2016
  • Vacation's overMore rain. Packed up. Paid my bill. Waited for a boat. About 8 people were headed to Bambuda Castle, and we all hopped on the same boat. Luckily we were between showers. The others Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 26, 2016
  • HomeNow that I'm away from the ocean, the sun comes out! Had a couple of sunny but very windy days. Went food shopping, dropped off my laundry, and visited Bambuda Castle. Made reservations for New Year's. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 28, 2016
  • 2017?Not ready for a new year; still stuck in 2016. Guess it'll hit me before too long. My shins are beat up from going from the hot tub to the pool and back, several times. Don't ask Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 31, 2016
  • Waiting Spent this week seeking health insurance. It seems that someone who is permanently traveling falls into a black hole: companies insure travelers (temporary ones) or residents (of a particular country). US residents fall into Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Mar 6, 2016
  • More waiting Still hanging around Boquete. Found a local insurance office; after a three person conference, they informed me that I needed residency to get the insurance package that I wanted. So the next step is trying to Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Mar 25, 2016
  • Hills and mudFinally got my butt out of Boquete, for a little while. For those of you who wondered where I went to after my last entry in March: I decided to apply for residency in Panama, mainly so I could Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 18, 2016
  • Old BankOld Bank is the name of the main area of Bastimentos. It's sort of like a large village, or a very small town. There's a sidewalk, about 5ft wide, that runs from one end of town to the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 19, 2016
  • Beach visitSo I determined to try to get to the beach again. Yesterday my calves were so sore and stiff from the hill climbing the day before that all I could do was walk around town. I went to Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 20, 2016
  • Visit to Carenero islandTook another walk around town, mainly to find a lunch place. Finally ended up on a hill at a place called Mami's. Good inexpensive food. Three out of five tables were occupied: good sign. Turns out all of Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 21, 2016
  • Walk around Bocas town Took a complete walk around town. Which isn't very hard to do: it's only six streets deep, and the first two are half streets; and it's only eight blocks wide. So the pics you see cover most of Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Feb 13, 2016
  • Last day in BocasI was going to leave today, but I hadn't got all of my itinerary set up. I'll have no internet for four or five days, so I needed to get all my reservations done and synced up. Hope Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Feb 14, 2016
  • Last day in Panama I stayed in David prior to getting up at 4am for the trek to Corcovado. Last thoughts on Panama: the physical things (countryside, roads, structures, etc) are good; the people, not so much. The drivers, 90% of Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Feb 15, 2016
