Season Three

Parade in Las Tablas 4
So…in one of the worst kept secrets since…sliced bread? Grrr, one whole year of blogging in Panama and my analogies are still sucking the hind one. Anyway, you may have seen some of our posts about house sitting. In fact, I just wrote a book about it too. Get your copy on Amazon today! Well, after house sitting in Pedasi […]

Is It Time To Leave Panama?

So…we’re city slickers now. We just finished up a three week house sit in The Right Hand…or Arraijan as it’s known to everyone else. Some friends have graciously allowed us to stay at their condo in the city, and it’s awesome, because we get to enjoy some of the Panama City cultural events the city has to offer that the […]

Panama City Cultural Events You Won’t Want to Miss

President of Panama for a Day
So…we’re living near the city now for one of our house sits. In doing so, we had to leave Pedasi and take…the bus. I have a love/hate with buses here. I love that you can take them EVERYWHERE for a very affordable price. I hate that it’s still the bus and you’re at the mercy of someone else’s schedule. This […]

What I Would do as President of Panama for a ...

So…last week I shared our one year of expenses while living in Panama – specifically Pedasi. I thought it would be neat to compare the so called “cheaper cost of living in Panama” to that of our cost of living back in the cold confines of suburban Canada…and no, we didn’t live in an igloo, but we did learn how to make pie […]

Does Panama REALLY Have a Cheaper Cost of Living?

So…doing the math and wondering if you can afford to live in Pedasi or Panama in general? A few other bloggers touch base on the cost of living. Kris Cunningham gives her breakdown of life in David, and Christopher Powers details his costs of living in Panama City. Those are both great baselines for comparison because they’re opposite ends of […]

Can You Afford the Cost of Living in Panama?

So…a few weeks ago I outlined some things we expats take for granted, and a friend of mine here in Pedasi wanted a list of the good things. On that day, I struggled to find the good for the first time ever in my entire life. No, really, it’s true. That’s why I wrote the following Ocho List. But first, […]

8 Reasons Why Panama Sucks

So…I’ve been working on something. Something…big!  No wait, something… BIG!  Yeah, caps, underlined bright colored bold italics is way better. Back in early 2014, shortly after our massive disappointment with the second installment of the Hobbit trilogy, we decided to kick some things into high gear. What does that mean? That means we started looking into our lifestyle more and […]

Is It Time To Sell All Your Stuff?

So…as homeless house sitters living a nomadic lifestyle and moving from town to town, home to home, we get to experience a lot of the ups and downs about life in Panama. Sometimes we’ve had little to no internet, frequent power outages, and it’s definitely difficult to pin down any sort of routine. That being said, I started to think […]

8 Things You Take for Granted Living in Developed Countries

So…last week I wrote a blog about making money in Panama. It’s amazing how the subject of money intrigues people so much. Within that blog post was a small section about house and pet sitting which, based on the emails I’m still catching up on, caught the attention of quite a few people! You see, my wife and I can […]
