I couldn’t have asked for a better place to wind down my Latin American adventures than here in Bocas del Toro, Panama. But while we originally planned to stay here until the bitter end, we couldn’t resist popping up to Costa Rica for a peek at the beaches our fellow backpackers have been raving about. We leave Panama tomorrow, and while I can barely wrap my brain around it, I fly back to the US in just ten days. Those of you that follow me on Facebook have already heard my amazing news for the week — I got tickets to Tomorrowland! Which means I’m making serious headway on my travel plans for 2014.
Right now, my brain is completely fried from flight itineraries, frequent flyer miles and festival plans but considering I’m heading to Europe in the height of high season, I need to do some serious booking soon. Some hostels I’ve looked at are already selling out for July! Right now all I have are my Tomorrowland ticket and a cheap flight I snapped up from Brussels to Athens for the day after the festival.
Now for the bad news — my Canon PowerShot S100 went to camera heaven this week. I guess it finally had enough of being dropped on the dancefloor, infested with sand and small insects and just generally abused while I toted it around the globe. While I’m bummed, I know we had a great run together, and I’m grateful that it waited until this trip was almost over to give up. I’ll keep you guys posted on my inevitable new underwater camera setup purchase, and in the meantime, if you’re looking for an underwater housing for your own S100, see the bottom of this post!
