Sweat Eat Repeat in Panama

Ben says the theme of this vacation is “Sweat, Eat, Repeat” because we started our day with a hike up to the top of Taboga Island’s famous cross lookout point…IMG_1667 (800x533)

IMG_1662 (533x800)First, we SWEAT.IMG_1661 (800x533)  

Then, it was time to EAT breakfast! IMG_1677 (800x533) IMG_1678 (800x533)

We left the island after breakfast to head to the cloud forest inland. It was another boat trip and then bus ride. IMG_1203 (800x600)

We missed the ferry we took yesterday and ended up on a small speedy type boat full of locals. It was cool.IMG_1205 (800x600)

I used these Sea Bands to prevent getting sea sick and they worked!  IMG_1209 (600x800)  IMG_1207 (800x600)

And before hiking we stopped at a bakery for a snack. Tiny coffee.IMG_1222 (800x600) IMG_1224 (800x600)

Time to EAT! (Which is always my favorite time.)IMG_1276 (800x600) IMG_1279 (800x600)

Warm brownies with ice cream taste better on vacation. It’s science.IMG_1282 (800x600)

And we’ll repeat it one more day before we head home :)

    Um, is that a cornbread muffin on your breakfast? It sure looks like it. Cornbread is my addiction- I would rather eat cornbread than chocolate cake. That picture is taunting me.

    Ok so totally random comment but: I was watching this short docu on MGM musicals and a lot of it was about Judy Garland and her face reminded me so much of you. So, just so you know, you have a little something Miss Garland in your looks. (I’m talking the early Judy Garland, not when she was heavily addicted to drugs 😉 )

    Oh what a lovely view! Although hiking in thongs must have hurt!

    Funny story about sea bands – I heard of them when I was working in Hong Kong just a few months ago and the ferry rides and junk boat cruises I was on kept making me throw up. So I was trying to find them at the pharmacy there and the girl at one took me to the birth control aisle when I said my symptoms were motion sickness!! I was like, I don’t sick from THAT kinda motion youknowwhati’mssayin? 😛 #lostintranslationfail

    Found them eventually and they are great!

    Where did you find the Sea Bands and what are your thoughts about them? My oldest daughter gets car sick and we don’t like traveling because of it!! I’m game to try ANYthing!!!

    Whenever you say “it’s science” I always laugh out loud. I don’t know why, you think somehow it would stop being funny, but somehow it just gets me every time!

    I always crave healthy foods after vacation too. Weske a big batch of vegetable soup and my husband calls it our “detox”!
