Island Living. Bocas del Toro, Panama.

Heading further south along the coast, I finally ventured into Bocas del Toro Panama. I was traveling with a friend and attempted to describe what he was about to see. The best phrase I could think of was that it is the happiest place on earth. Yes, that’s right…it’s happier than Disneyland. Continue reading

The Shakeup. San Jose, Costa Rica.

After spending the day in San Jose, I headed to the airport to meet my sister on her arriving flight. I somehow managed to arrive an hour early, so grabbing a cup of coffee, I parked it to begin my wait. As the people started to trickle out, I spotted my sister’s bright blonde hair in the crowd. As she came closer, I saw she was walking with another blonde-headed girl. Cool, I thought…she made a friend. Then I realized I knew exactly who she was with…my cousin. Continue reading
