Finally, the only day on this trip that I wasn't going anywhere. Anywhere international that involved a plane, at least. Many people have asked me why I felt it was a good idea to go someplace far away for such a short amount of time. I don't have a great answer for that, other than I love to travel, and even going for such a short time would be such a thrill.
Today would be another long day, another plane ride and another new city. Two firsts would happen today for me. First would be a new continent, South America, and the second would be crossing the Equator!
I wish that I had enough time to actually sit and have breakfast at my apartment, but my taxi was waiting.
Welcome back to Fernweh Again. Today we take you on a last minute trip to Panama and Peru! Several people that are close and dear to me had recently undertaken adventures (or were continuing on a years-long voyage) and I just couldn't sit idly and not go somewhere myself. After a few days of hunting for just the right ticket and itinerary, COPA Airlines was kind enough to offer perfection.
On a cold January morning, I headed to Boston to catch my flight southward bound.
