Get an insight of expats' daily life in Panama and read their blogAdd your blog
Our decision to move to Panama has been in the works for many years. Now that its coming to fruition we want to share our experience through this blog. Our hope is that you too will be inspired to jump out of your comfort zone and find the thing that floats your boat and perhaps even plan an escape of your own!
A blog covering my personal adventures in Panama with the latest essentials on nightlife, food, fun things to do, news, events, tips, etc.
In early 2008 writer, executive Elizabeth Vance was transferred to Panama City; a move which would prove challenging and rewarding and would ultimately lead to this Gringo Guide to Panama. Elizabeth shares her experiences from her first naive preconceptions about life in Panama to learning first hand just how laughably incorrect most of them were. The first two years of her transition were tough, an experience shared by many other North American Panama expats. The Gringo Guide to Panama is the result of her journey into the culture of the isthmus. It offers personal, realistic advice for what may be the biggest move of your life, whether you come for business, retirement or adventure.
This blog is a personal writing project about distilling life lessons through travel writing and ex-pat living in Boquete, Panama. We are a cast of characters that includes a pair of retirees, a musician and a family with a young child. Plus two cats and a dog.
My wife and I, live for travel. We love to plan and organize trips months ahead. While on a trip, we start planning the next one. We believe that life is a precious gift, time given to us is limited and the world is full of wonders. To waste time on stereotypes, fears and general opinion is a blasphemy. We saw in disbelief individuals that are afraid to step out from the confines of the hotel or outright refusal to try a new, exotic fruit. While I do not wish to judge anyone on their particular eating habits or spending their precious time off work, we operate slightly opposite! Our trips are filled with outrageous accidents, accidental wonders and amazing wildlife encounters.
Words for the wise traveller: a site dedicated to offering practical advice, humorous tales and outstanding pictures from a traveller, for travellers. Many, but not all articles are Panama related as the author is currently living in Panama.
This blog is our way of taking you all with us on our excellent Adventure. I hope you enjoy following our journey as much as we are enjoying it! Cheers!
