I am home. It was a great adventure. I traveled for 67 days and logged 5740 Kms between Cancun and Panama City. I traveled by plane, boat, ferry, panga, launcha, bus, tourist shuttle, chicken bus (with chickens) colectivo, taxi, pedicab, tuktuk, and flip flop. I stayed in hostels but with a private room and private bath. Average daily cost was $51. I hiked, swam, snorkeled, fished, zip lined, made chocolate, took tours, went to live theater and transited the Panama Canal. I did not get robbed, beaten, raped, mugged, kidnapped or held hostage. I did not have anything stolen. I never got sick, hurt, or lost. All in all the trip was: 1) much easier than I expected 2) I felt much safer than I expected 3) locals were friendly and helpful everywhere 4) Borders (aside from Panama) were easy. 5) I never felt I was scammed or ripped off 6) I was surprised how clean budget accommodations and public washrooms always were 7) Guns everywhere were a bit intimidating 8) Capital cities – aside from Panama, were not worth stopping to see. 9) Tours and activities were reasonably priced. Knowing now what I did not know before I left the only change I would make would be to travel slower. I found I was tired when I got home. I will keep posting things here that I did not have time for when I was traveling, and I am busy making plans for Asia – goal date to leave is Nov. 1.
