Yup!

This will be our 13th year. Twelve in the timeshare. Two weeks in a tropical paradise. However, now I take my laptop and stay in touch at a reduced participation level. I usually log in while sitting in bed at night unwinding.

I never thought about Panama as a vacation spot. More of a support system for the canal.

Have you been there before?

Quick update. I have access to DC again, both through a new phone and through the computer. I'm down in Grand Rapids (under the same roof as the hubby again!) but we still don't have our own place yet. I'm looking for work and trying to get familiar with a city that has roughly a population of 600,000 after living in a town since the 4th grade that has a population of roughly 16,000. I figure I'll probably get lost a lot at first so trying to drive around and explore before I get a job.

Also have a bunch of stuff going on with the hubby's sister that he and I are trying to get figured out. And once we get our own place we still have to get the rest of our stuff that we put in storage down here.

So still pretty busy. Will still be a bit before I can get on regulary but we're doing well and making progress. I hope everyone's holidays went well and if anyone is familiar with the GR area and haa tips for where to find good food (grocier or restaurant) shoot me a message; I'd greatly appreciate the advice. Talk to you all soon.

No I haven't, but its supposed to be the new "hot" vacation trend. The reviews talk about it being like Costa Rica, and I have been there. I loved Costa Rica.

Here's the info.

And here is the hotel info.
