Auf geht's! Raus aus Panama City!

A travel blog entry by weltwanderin on Jan 10, 2014

Am Freitag war relativ wenig los, weil es ja dank des Feiertages am Tag davor quasi ein Brückentag war. Ich hatte mich entschieden, mit den Luxus zu gönnen, im Taxi zum Busbahnhof Albrook zu fahren. Der Fahrer war nett und vor allem zeichnete ihn ein zurückhaltender Fahrstil aus. Vielleicht ist er als Fahrer für den Februar geeignet, wenn ich tä …

My time in David was a quiet one, which was exactly what I was after. I went there for a detox programme and to use the time to catch up with friends via Skype, upload my vast collection of photos from three months on Raleigh expedition and see what's been going on in the world. After leaving Bocas and my Raleigh companions, I bussed across Panama …

A seven hour, picturesque, busride away from Panama City is a place called David. It's the second biggest city in Panama (yet completely different) and we thought it would make a good base for us to get out to the more natural areas of this country, such as the highlands, jungles and beaches.
Our hostel came with a green and …

... the summit clouds started to roll in, the wind picked up and we quickly found ourselves in a blanket of mist that started soaking everything. We had the choice of continuing up to the summit where it would be very exposed or taking a two hour rest at a campsite 30 minutes from the summit that was in the trees. The campsite had a run down shelter with a bunch of planks rotting or missing so we agreed to rest there. Somehow I managed to get an hour of sleep before waking up soaked ...

The In-Between Days

... our price, even though the cab driver had made the mistake of saying he knew where it was. All we had left now was our trek up the hill. I don't think we had ever gotten up that hill quicker than we did that night. By the time we finally made it to the actual hostel, we had spent around 14 hours on buses, and another 2 hours in cars. A total of 16 hours travelled in one day, it was good to be done to say the least! Now back at ...

    The gardens, pool and friendly staff make this a great place to relax. Buses to David entre and other destinations, including Frontera and a minute away. If staying for longer, book just one night online though, as thy charge more!

    Very basic private rooms. The jungle courtyard and pool out the back is cool, as is the simple jungle bar and $1 beers.
