I’ve met a lot of people during my travels, but some of the most informative writers around are the other bloggers, expats and Panamanians. Why? Because these people aren’t earning anything from the info they’re sharing. They tell you about their move or their home renovation or their holiday experience because they want to, not because they might gain a quick buck.
These people love telling people about their adventures and it’s through these trials and tribulations that we can all learn a great deal. Sometimes it prevents us from making some of the same mistakes. Expat bloggers are kind of like our training wheels. We learn as much as possible from their successes and horror stories so that we can finally take off those training wheels and start pedaling our expat feet. So, please, check out these other great bloggers’ sites.

Along The Gringo Trail
One day my husband Clyde approached me with the idea of early retirement IF we could find a place to live comfortably on his pension. Did I want to work another 15 years or check out of the working world now and enjoy life? I asked him, “where we going and when do we leave?” Ok so the whole decision process really wasn’t that easy, but after much research we moved our lives to Panama for the adventure of a lifetime. Two lost gringo’s in a foreign world, with a language we didn’t understand. Clyde suggested I start a blog so our kids and friends back in the states could follow along on our adventures. A realistic story of two crazy gringo’s that submerged themselves in a different culture, a new language, and a totally different way of thinking about everything.
Come along with us on our journey as we begin a new chapter of our lives in Panama…along the gringo trail.
Our Third Life – Pedasi, Panama
My blog “Our Third Life-Pedasi, Panama” is about our adventures and experiences moving to and living in Panama. I started writing this mainly to share with our friends and family back in the US. It has also become an outlet to share with other expats living in Panama as well as those interested in visiting or moving to Panama.
Ray and I have been married for twenty-five years and have one daughter, Carly. While she was in college, we started discussing and researching our next move in life. Being empty nesters, we had a lot of time on our hands. While researching and with vacations to Panama, we started a blog. It explains more about us and how we came to the decision to make Panama our home in the summer of 2014.
Permanently Panama is “hellbent on making Life Abroad accessible.” Written by 20-something expat Alice Beth, Permanently Panama offers a different perspective on what life in Panama is all about. The site, which floats somewhere between “youthful” and “cheeky,” is geared toward entrepreneurs, future and current expats, and anyone with a taste for the tropics.
I have resided in Chiriquí since March of 2003. Chiriquí Chatter is written in a journal format and reflects what is going on in my life. It contains my experiences, my interests, or what ever is on my mind at the moment.
I am the current warden in David, Chiriquí for the US Embassy in Panama City. All U.S. Embassy notices that are sent to me by the American Citizens Services unit are posted under ACS in the TAG Cloud on the right side of the blog. A Warden is a volunteer who assists with communication between the US Embassy and US citizens living abroad.
Boquete Panama Guide
We stumbled across Boquete while touring Panama. Boquete was a side trip on our path to La Amistad International Peace Park; we never made it to the park. We found Boquete in July 2006, sold our house and moved here in August 2006. An amazing transition in a very short time.
My wife left Boquete, it was not for her. I stayed and have created a new life. A life I am enjoying far more than my past.
Since I have been here, I have created a blog of my experiences that has become very popular, a rather unintended consequence, at www.boqueteguide.com.
I have now twice been elected by my neighbors to the lowest possible elected position in Panama. I am a Voice on the local water board. With this lofty position I have learned too much about water and bureaucracy in Panama. When you are an expat you think every hurdle is special and for you. When you are a official of an elected body you discover the problems are universal.
In 2007 I created http://www.boquetening.com a community forum to allow people to learn about the community. It now seems to have a life of it’s own and is highly recommended to potential tourists and people considering relocation. The site allows you to research years of experiences posted by others and ask questions of your own.
Relax, kick back, and enjoy the lighter side of Panama! I have a passion for comedy, have performed stand-up, and written comedic screenplays. If you would like a weekly sitcom of what life can be like in Panama then check out PanamaDude.com, dude!
