Our visas were coming to and end in Mexico and we needed to take a trip to renew them. So we decided on a quick getaway to Panama and Costa Rica. I didn't really have an idea about the capital city of  Panama, but when we arrived I was surprised about how beautiful Casco Viejo was. We stayed in the city for a few nights and spent the rest of our time exploring the historical centre and soaking up the sights before heading to Bocas Del Toro. What I loved about Panama City, especially Caso Viejo were the abundance of cafes, nightlife and music in the air. The vibe was tropical, colourful and made you feel excited for some reason. It feels like something amazing is about to happen there, maybe because the historical centre is still a mix of beautifully restored colonial buildings and others which are so dilapidated that it seems impossible that families are living full lives within their walls. It is quite weird to walk past a boarded up building and when you look through the window...

So much has happened since myself and my partner Zac left Australia for Mexico last March 2016. We both wanted to travel for a long time and when the opportunity arose we grabbed it with both hands. We booked our tickets, packed our life into a storage container somewhere in Melbourne and off we went. Looking back, there are no regrets, I only wish I took my rarely attended Spanish lessons way more seriously. I don't think I had any clue that most people in Mexico, especially the south, do not speak english. We spent our first few days in Mexico City. At first, it is very daunting, over polluted and full on. But as I visit the city more often, I have found pockets of the city of I like. With amazing vintage furniture shops and great food. Still, a few days is all I need before I am ready to get out of there. After Mexico city we caught the first class bus (highly recommended - see tips) down to Acapulco, apparently the highway you take is a dangerous stretch of road... we did no...
