My big trip for the year is to Panama for three months. Originally I wanted to do two big trips this year but it didn’t work out. Why is it a big trip? It’s a big trip because since I started my travels in early 2012 this is the first country I’ll be visiting where I don’t know anyone, and I don’t speak the native language. I’ll be spending three months in Panama. I intend to blog on a regular basis about my experience. My family and friends are concerned, but I have done a ton of research and I believe everything will work out fine. If I run into problems I think I’ll be well equipped to handle them.
