Where I stayed
Day 454: Monday 15th April 2013
Getting our shuttle bus in the morning we found ourselves at one of the more interesting border crossing I have been to. The crossing between Costa Rica and Panama is an old disused railway bridge. Lots of the old railway sleepers are missing and the whole thing feels well past its best
Day 455: Tuesday 16th April 2013
Waking up for our increasingly regular breakfast of pancakes we had a slow start to the day whilst working out what we wanted to do with ourselves. Deciding to pass up on the chance to go Kayaking, paddle-boarding or the very temping water trampoline we opted instead to have a bit more of a relaxed day and head out to the beach on the small neighbouring island. We spent our time really doing very little enjoying smoothies and playing cards in a restaurant on the beach and then having a little explore and lounging around in the nice warm water. We had been planning on leaving that evening but annoyingly all the buses were booked out so we had to wait another night.
Day 456: Wednesday 17th April 2013
After ensuring we had our bus tickets confirmed for that evening we had a really lazy day milling about our hostel and the town today. I took the opportunity to catch up on some Travmin, my blog was falling along way behind yet again by this point. We played some more cards, cooked some of the girls favourite, and Cori's speciality, Mac 'n' Cheese and then caught our 12 hour night bus at 5pm. We all ended up "drugging up" taking some drowsy gravol in the hopes that it would help us sleep, but to no avail, the bus had cranked their air-con up full blast and we all ended up shivering the whole night through.
