We finally made it back!! Whew! After our 6 hour bus ride from Samara to San Jose we finally arrived at the airport in time for our 5pm LAX flight. But the […]
I still can’t believe this is like one of the only pictures we have of Samara. We spent 7 nights there!!! Ha! But I suppose by the end of our trek we […]
OK. So it seems easy enough to get from Jaco to Samara on the Nicoya peninsula at first glance. It’s kind of why we planned our route this way. But in reality […]
We got to the mall/bus terminal about 2pm and waited and waited for our midnight departure to Costa Rica. Once we were on the bus we made ourselves comfortable for the overnight […]
Absolutely the best part of this song is Mr.Belding. Oh my God. I’m dying 🙂 Plus Hubby says it’s his theme song!
And now we’re sitting in our room, our late check-out allows us to stay until 2pm today. And then it’s off to Albrook to catch our Midnight bus to Costa Rica. Ryder’s […]
Our last almost full day in Panama was spent on the Causeway. We had read about these 4 person bike things and thought it would be pretty fun. It was. It was […]
The continent’s largest mall, and 14th largest in the world. Sees on average 40k visitors per day! Also the location of the Panama Gran Terminal, bus station. We found ourselves there Saturday […]
The canal averages 30-40 boats per day. The expanded locks were implemented mid last year accommodating larger “Pana Max” boats. While we were in the museum they announced that a ship would […]
When you first enter there’s a 10 minute movie that helps you understand the concept of the locks and gives a brief history. Then it’s on to the museum.
As our time here in Panama comes to an end we couldn’t leave without visiting the infamous “Locks” where you can witness the process of how the boats are raised and/or lowered […]
So we had the chance to visit the “Old Quarter” Casco Viejo, also known as Casco Antigua and San Felipe. This is the oldest area in Panama City. The original city, Panama […]
So we made it to the Causeway in Panama City. A new hotel in a new part of the city. We’re down on the Amador Causeway at the Pacific entrance to the […]
A few pics from our hotel. The city is just beautiful and there is a ton of construction. Wonder what a condo goes for down here 🙂 ????
The kiddos, and Dad, did such a great job on our long travel day!
I thought this little sequence turned out so good!!!!
So we officially left Bocas. And honestly it was probably the first time in all the places we’ve been we were all sad to leave. Hubby and I fell in love with […]
So we’ve had a great last few days here in Bocas. We did a snorkel tour on Friday. The weather was pretty horrendous, but we still managed to have a great day. […]
Wow. Can these guys drum!!!! It’s amazing how talented these kiddos are. We had a great time taking part in the festivities today. So Bastimentos Day is their Independence day. To preface […]
Once we were all settled into our room it was time for grub and a quick walk to get our our bearings. While we were out we met a nice man named […]
Our time in Puerto Viejo was pretty spectacular. We enjoyed hanging at our new family favorite place, The Lazy Mon. We met a cute local kid named Warner, or Pana Dred, as […]
Just south of Punta Uva is the quiet little town of Manzanillo. Not much to it other than the beach, but the boys had a great time. We enjoyed a pipa frio, […]
Well. We made it to Punta Uva today. It’s about 45 minutes south of Cahuita. Ate at a great little cafe, Gustabus. We’re staying with a young woman named Iris, she doesn’t […]
Cute little guy just made his way across the yard. Love them!!!

One of my favorite Disneyland signs ever!!! Anyways, dad and I managed to get a little churro and coffee time sans kids. Things got a little crazy!!! Meanwhile the kids rode splash […]
Around Halloween Time at Disneyland over in frontier land they offer free face painting. Just these four basic designs, but a great way to get into the spirit.
Well. We’re about two and a half weeks in now and the trip has been interesting so far. I’m the first to admit that I am super guilty of trying to recreate […]
