Livin' la COVID Loca~ Country #2
A break from Costa Rican life... and on to Panama to see what this country has in store for me. Bring on the Panamanians and the mind-boggling canal... & the rain.
Should have been Cuba... but what could be better than a ferry ride up to the Rain Capital of Canada... and a tour through interior BC on the way back down?

I have 24 hours to fit in Vincent Van Gogh, Anne Frank, famous canals, the world's smallest room, freezing temperatures... and jet lag. GO!
Here for the Peanut Sauce

Livin' la COVID Loca~ Country #3
An attempt to escape the rain... I was sucked back into North America, in a desperate attempt to find sun. Good idea for the tan, not so great for the finances.

Just a few travel articles and a handful of the good, the bad and the ugly! Patience isn't always my virtue. Nor is packing! It's always an adventure though.
