Six years ago, I had the chance to cross one more item from my bucket list of places to visit. Panama. I was also lucky that my “BFF” and her family lived in this country’s central province, although we did not call good friends BFF’s back then.
A pending visit with my friend’s family prompted me to review my photos from the trip over the past few days. Although I had learned a few more digital photography skills between Peru and Panama, I still had a way to go to get the best from that camera. I also admit that during both trips, I was also overwhelmed with just being there and that that affected my good photographic judgement. I can see where I could have made a better shot. But, they remain a perfectly good momento of a perfect trip that meant the world to me.
If you are thinking of visiting friends far away, my advice to you is to JUST GO. You never know what life may bring, and what opportunities might never come again. My only regret about Panama is not having gone before, or more often.
Il y a maintenant six ans, j’ai eu la grande chance de visiter une région du Panama peu fréquentée par les touristes, et une grande amie. Le retour au Canada de un de mes amis latino-américain m’a incité à revoir mes photos de voyage que je partage maintenant avec vous.
En regardant mes photos, je deviens nostalgique et un peu triste: la vie m’a offert qu’un seul voyage à ce majestueux pays, et la chance de revoir un être cher avant son départ de notre réalité. J’offre donc un conseil : profiter des belles opportunités de passer du temps avec vos êtres chers!
