My name is Margaux and I am a French girl based in Panama. After 5 years living in Latin America, I decided to start this blog Marence to express myself and share some pieces of my everyday life. My education & job have given me the opportunity to live in Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Panama. And, I know that it is always complicated to arrive in a new city without knowing all the city tips. Thats why, here you will find some pieces of advice, thoughts, my favorite places and some posts on everything I like in life.

The Gringo Guide to Panama

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.

Travel backwards with us

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.
