Ugh. Coming back to work and responsibility after a full week of undivided relaxation, exploring, and time with your husband (eek!) is not the most fun. But reminiscing and looking through photos is!
Our first few days in Panama, we laid around beach side on Isla Bastimentos, an island off the coast of Bocas deal Toro. We did some swimming, snorkeling, saw the local village, and ended with Cody taking surf lessons! He's actually pretty good!
We finally peeled ourselves away (literally, it was super humid) to head up to the mountains of Boquete. We explored the jungles, and learned about the history of Panama from our tour guide Hans!
We stopped back in Michigan to pick up Fitz, and are back to our routines, much to our chagrin.
After getting our rain fix, we hopped on a plane to Panama City to finish out our trip exploring the old city. We stayed at the American Trade Hotel in Casco Viejo, and it was an amazing experience! The hotel is an old historic building that has been restored and turned into a hotel. There is a neat library on one floor, and a jazz club with amazing local artists! We spent some time seeing the canal and saw a cruise ship pass through the locks, but my favorite was seeing the old buildings that had been renovated!
Until next time,
