I'm Back! and the Panama Canal

Hello! Oh, how I've missed you. I've been back in town for about a week now, just trying to get back into the groove of things. So far so good! I have so much to share. But first, why don't we start with a trip recap? Don't mind if I do!

Our trip started in Panama City, mainly because that's where the plane lands. We flew from Orlando to Miami and landed at our destination. The next morning, we checked out the canal. It was really breathtaking. I really had no opinion about going to the canal or not, but after being there, I can say it's a "must see" if you go to Panama. It gives you a whole new perspective for all those things you're buying overseas. And it brings income to the city, which helps their area thrive.

Fun fact: It takes 8 hours for a ship to get through the canal.
Another Fun fact: They're currently constructing a larger canal to accomodate larger ships.

There's so much more to show you and to share-we were in Panama for 2 weeks. So I'll post more updates soon.

I'm curious to know what other people's favorite vacations/sights have been. Did it surprise you, or were you looking forward to it all along?
