The thing I appreciate the most about solo long term traveling is freedom I have. I especially love the last minute decisions. Exactly what happened on my way back from Pavones.

Well, well, well. Finally in Costa Rica. After 2 days without electricity I left Bocas Del Toro archipelago and decided to cross the border. One month in Panama was just enough. Bastimentos was a lot of fun and relax but it was time to move on. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t forget […]
