The Ramblings Of A Pessimistic Arsenal Fan


We returned to Central America a few years after our travels as we liked it so much there. But Panama didn’t really do it for us. The people were extremely miserable and some of the places were underwhelming. But the Panama Canal, Boquete and the islands of Bocas del Toro were fantastic.

Marinated Crab Cramps

A few days of respite from the heat up in the mountains of Boquete are followed by a few days in Bocas del Toro where we meet some fantastic people and learn some interesting Spanish phrases.

Happy Children, Terrifying Boats And Fawlty Towers

A visit to the local village on the San Blas islands turns out to be surprisingly good. Then we travelled to Pedasi where I am forced to endure the most frightening boat trip of my life before moving on to a hotel run by an insane French woman on Boca Chica.

Big Ships And Hairy Landings

A memorable trip to see the Panama Canal is the highlight of a few days in Panama City. We then squash into a tiny piece of flying metal for a hair-raising flight to the San Blas Islands.
