I love my country. This country, like most Latin countries, the divide between the poor and the wealth is great. But one thing remains common among all the people in Panama; pride for our country. There is so much beauty and love. I was thrilled to spend time with mi abuela and when I asked
I was born in Panama… Going back to visit my Abuela and the country that I spent my childhood in. So much has changed but it felt good to be home. Panamanian Pride where ever you go! I love my country.
All the green in Portland and beauty of the city makes for Portland a dream destination. We stayed in an AirBnB in the Southeast Neighborhood. The neighborhood was unbelievably adorable and conveniently walkable. Me, being a girl from Arizona, was taken back by all the greenery. I loved seeing the trees, flowers, grass and fresh
The moment I stepped off the plane, everything changed. The land felt new. The smell felt stronger. It was real.. Real leaves change colors. Real life takes place. The first thing I had to do was find a car to take me to Bolling Military Base. Yes, military baby and I am proud. Especially during
El Arco in Cabo San Lucas is a very well known tourist attraction. It was the main reason I wanted to travel to Mexico. Our resort had everything arranged for us to take a shuttle to the docs where a very polite man with a boat took us on an hour and half tour. It
As a child, my grandmother wouldn’t let me collect seashells. She believed that people go to the beach and tell the ocean their problems. The seashells would keep their problems and if you took the seashells, you would be taking their problems home with you. I happily left all the seashells on the beach while I
I am the epitome of a girls’ girl. So when I saw the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts, I was inspired to travel solo to Italy! And just like that… I was in Italy. Living out scenes from one of my favorite movies. Walking the streets of Rome, shopping for “bigger pants,” trying
I turned 30 and I have to tell you, I wasn’t ready. All my 30 year old friends kept telling me how great it is to be 30. And all my friends in their 20’s kept telling me, when they turn 30, they’re going to be happy, not sad, like me. Well, here’s to celebrating
The weekend I finally made my way to Chicago, it was the winning weekend for the Cubs and Ireland ! What a fun experience, if I do say so myself. The River was died blue in honor of the Chicago Cubs win! As I was walking the streets of Chicago, I wondered why there were
My family and I have been going to Porto’s since I was a little girl. This authentic Cuban bakery is a staple in California. Their location in Downy makes close to 10,000 sandwiches a day and houses over 250 employees. My favorite is the Cuban sandwiches. Layers of pork, ham, cheese and pickles. Sounds simple,
My time in St. Thomas was one the most enjoyable times of my life.. On the island they drive on the wrong side of the road! Yes that is presumptuous to assume that the driving in America is the right way. They don’t even stop at red lights, they are described as “pink lights, which
That one time I went to San Francisco! Who doesn’t love the most expensive city in the U.S. ?! Well I do! One of my favorite cities I have ever visited. A friend of mine was working in the city so a group of us gathered our belongings and crashed with her for a week.
On the island…. Welcome to The Virgin Islands. We did spent a good amount of time eating and drinking.. And why wouldn’t you, when everything is so fresh ! The seafood and the plantains were my favorite ! Side note: I strongly recommend you eat as many beef pattes as you can get your hands
In the days leading up to my travels, I found myself worried, overwhelmed. The thought of being on the road for so long without a single recognizable face to entertain me. The day came to pack my bags and embark on my seven day adventure and I felt ready ! Here I am, D.C., you were
Musee des Beaux-Arts de Montreal. I was laying in my bed thinking about how beautiful Canada is. I was remembering the Red Hearts in front of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The museum was close to my hotel so every night, as I walked back, I would think about the beauty that is love. So
