Panama ~ Ruins of Panama Viejo

Another week is getting away from me, so this post is going to be more photos and a few notes here and there πŸ™‚ This day was all about Panama Viejo.

Panama Viejo is the remaining part of the old Panama City. It was founded in 1519. Through it’s beginning years, it suffered many fires, pirate attacks and attacks from indigenous people. In 1671, Henry Morgan attacked the city which caused damage severe enough that the city had to be rebuilt where the new city thrives today.

Hope you enjoy this journey through the ruins as much as I did!

Panama ~ Fish Market & Casco Viejo

Hey all. I’m so sorry it’s been taking me so long to get our trip posted. I have so many photos that I want and every time I start working on a post I get over-whelmed. I honestly just want to get these all shared with you so I can get back to posting recipes and about everything that’s going on around here!!! EXCITING STUFF!!!

This day was filled with lots of walking and history. We started with a visit to the fish market and then went on to explore Casco Viejo. Hope you enjoy all the photos!!


Panama ~ Our First Day

We spent our first full day in Panama shopping and seeing more of the city. We took the bus to the Albrook Mall and then walked part of the way back to the apartment.

Panama ~ Taboga Island & Las Tinajas

Our third day in Panama was probably my favorite. We took a ferry out to Taboga Island and then went and saw a costumed folklore performance at Las Tinajas. Get ready for another photo overload! I think I had an even MORE difficult time narrowing down these photos. Hope you enjoy!!!

Panama ~ Arrival

As you already know, we made it back safe and sound from our amazing trip to Panama. It’s taken me a few days weeks to get back in to the swing of things and to sort through over 1,400 photos so this post is quite late πŸ™‚Β  I had completely intended to write posts while we were there, but I only had access to internet in the evenings when we went up to the pool. Let me tell you that after sightseeing all day I just wanted to put my feet up, have a glass of wine and stare at the ocean πŸ™‚

After we got back from Panama our life changed a little. More on that in another post πŸ™‚ It’s a good change.

I had spent hours days writing a big long post in detail from the start of my day to the end and now that I’m sitting here, I honestly just want to share photos with you. I will probably go back and fill in my actual writing, but for now you get a photo story πŸ™‚


I’m BACK!!!

We did it! We made it to Panama and back πŸ™‚ What an amazing trip. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to update my blog while we were gone. We had so much to see and do that by the time we got back to the apartment and up to the pool where the WIFI was, I just wanted a drink, a swim and some relaxation time. I’m hoping to have everything sorted out by the end of the weekend so I can share our trip with you and many of the photos I took πŸ™‚

I hope you have an amazing weekend and Happy Valentine’s Day a day early πŸ™‚

Until next time.

Much love,
