I’ve let the blog slide a little of late… I’ll try and catch up while I rest here in Cartagena, Colombia (the fearsome cough has returned with a vengeance), get my wisdom teeth pulled (bargain, at $30 a pop) and plot my onward travels.
In the meantime, here’s some pics from the last few weeks…
An oh-so-tiny poison dart frog on the island of Bastimientos, in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro.
Equally cool, the delicious offerings at the nearby organic chocolatier, Up in the Hill. This ball of pure chocolate loveliness was on tantalising display, made from their very own chocolate trees. I guardedly lingered over it, inhaling deeply. .
Taking a break on the Panamerican.
Star fish in the clear Caribbean waters of Bocas del Drago. Beautiful, otherworldly creatures.
Sunset and an evening game of footie.
Crossing the crumpled cordillera back to the Pacific. Again…
Las Lajas, 20km of pristine beach. Sunrise and sunset here are bookends to perfect days.
Arriving in Panama City with Belgium cyclist Arnaud…
… like no other skyline in Central America.
Watching a bulging freighter inch its way through the fabled Panama Canal.
Heading out through the jungles to Portobello, to track down a boat.
And here she be. A couple of days later… Sailing to Colombia. What luxury!
Arrival in Cartagena. South America, at long last! Quite a feeling…
