I am writing this blog post a week before I depart from Vancouver to Iceland, on the 12-day “Ring Road” roadtrip around the country.
For the long weekend, I was invited to a family reunion for my boyfriend’s side of the family in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan.
No visit to Panama City would be complete without seeing the Panama Canal, an impressive man-made canal which took 10 years to build at the beginning of the 1900’s.
In Panama, the “lungs of Panama City” is Parque Natural Metropolitano, a 232 hectares tropical forest in the centre of the city.
Spending a leisurely five days in Bocas Del Toro, Panama, the Oreba Organic Cacoa Farm Tour kept popping up as a must-do in this region. For $30USD, you can take a half-day tour of a cacao farm, completely run by the indigenous Ngabe farmers, while getting an informative, interactive lesson on botany, ecology, wildlife and a hands-on lesson in chocolate making.
