The Darien Gap

January 8, 2011

Thursday, we crossed over the Darien Gap on our flight to Cartagena, Colombia.   The Darien Gap forms the border between Panama and Colombia and is one of the wildest places in the Western Hemisphere.  It’s a part of the world I’ve been fascinated with ever since hearing about it. It’s an impenetrable mix of […]

Catching Up

January 4, 2011

Good morning all, We’ve made it to Panama City!  After finding a bite to eat, we wandered around the deserted streets trying to find a taxi.  There were probably 20-30 parked ones with no one in site and the ones that drove by passed on with only the slightest glance.

New Year’s Eve Randomness

January 2, 2011

I’m a big fan of randomness when traveling.   When plans fall apart I start having fun.  I like to have an idea of what to do or some general direction but I think it’s extremely important when traveling abroad to be prepared to go with the flow.   Things change constantly.

January 2, 2011

Upon arriving at Hostel Bekuo, Aaron received a call from Rio Tropicales letting us know the waters were too high and we may not get to float Rio Pacuare. To say the least we were bummed, but we stayed optimistic and decided to go ahead and stay there, which meant we would have to hike […]
