If you’ve been following the blog for some time, you know our original intent was to buy a sailboat to live on and take along the northern coast of the Mediterranean. After being denied long term visas, we decided to tour some of Europe on land instead, then move to the Caribbean to pursue sailing. When it came time to do it, we changed our minds. And? We’re super stoked about it. Like I’ve said before, this is a year of opportunity for us to explore and discover, and we’ll be learning about the world and about ourselves regardless of where we lay our heads at night.
Many factors influenced our decision to ditch the boat idea, but in the end we decided it just wasn’t the right fit for us–at least not right now. We are still under the spell of the sea, so we won’t be going too far from her, but our next location will make it possible to also explore some amazing nature and wildlife.
We’ll be saying “hello” to Bocas del Toro, Panama.
The Bocas del Toro province includes an archipelago off the Caribbean coast as well as some mainland, about 20 miles south of Costa Rica. We’ll be on a secluded island, with the sea in front of us and the rainforest around us. I’m excited about sea turtles; Sean’s excited about sloths. We’re both excited about a very simple, eco-freindly existence where we can really dig into our personal goals, music, writing, and exploring panama’s rich culture and the surrounding rainforest.
We don’t know what to expect with regard to having internet access, but to those who do read our humble little blog we thank you and hope you’ll stick around to see what we get ourselves into next!
