July 16th, 2012|Blog, Central America, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, Panama, Travel Stories|

I had almost forgotten about  Latin American buses and their love for all things air conditioning... Or more likely I'd put it out of my mind secondary to previous trauma. But now here I find myself, sitting in sub zero temperatures aboard a large moving [...]

Surfers Paradise – Santa Catalina, Panama

July 15th, 2012|Blog, Central America, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, Panama, Travel Stories|

Surf. It is the major part of our adventure. So after the flat Caribbean oasis of the San Blas Islands we headed out of Panama City toward the pacific coast of Panama. Snag # 1: two recently purchased second hand surf boards... not standard taxi [...]

Friends in Strange Places – The San Blas Islands

July 12th, 2012|Blog, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, Panama, Travel Stories|

I was completely and utterly asleep and having a great dream while sitting in the back of a 4WD trundling along winding roads north of Panama City, when I was rudely awoken by a ‘tap tap tap’. I opened one sleepy eye only to be [...]

Panama City

July 10th, 2012|Blog, Central America, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, Panama, Travel Stories|

I stood looking out over the Panama Canal searching for inspiration for the Time as a Traveller post. My first natural response after seeing the museum and the movie was of course ‘great feats of human engineering’. But then I watched a huge container ship [...]

We arrived in Cartagena via a lovely air conditioned minibus named Miramar. We stayed at Viajero hostel, which is inside the city walls of the old town (rather than Getsemane like most) and spent two days relaxing and checking out the town – well other [...]

The most beautiful places on earth are often the most difficult to get to. That’s definitely something I’ve learnt on my travels. Stories of these places of magical beauty are paralleled only by the stories of how travellers got there. Full of sweat, tears, and [...]

There are often times when travelling when I've sat back and thought deeply about life... in fact, travelling is the time when this happens the most for me. Anthony had only been in Colombia two days before he was forced to ask himself a serious [...]

On Arriving – Santa Marta, Colombia

July 3rd, 2012|Blog, Colombia, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, South America, Travel Stories|

Dear Anthony and Bryce, It's 5:32am in Canada… I can barely convey how tired I am. Thankfully, I’m being fed coffee. I have 4 flights over the next 24 hours… and many hours in airports.I feel rubbish, but through my hazy eyes I can tell you [...]

Journey 2012 – The Freedom Days

July 3rd, 2012|Blog, Central America, Colombia, Freedom, Journey 2012 - The Freedom Days, South America, Travel Stories|
