San Blas Islands

The Derrien Gap (the only break in the series of roads running from Alaska to Chile known as the Pan-America Highway), was traversed via a sail boat adventure through the San Blas Islands off the Atlantic coast of Panama. While expensive, the boat ride offered a chance to relax off the bike in the beautiful carribean islands, stock up on calories, and meet lots of new friends.

While the 6 day trip included moments of hanging on for dear life, trying to sleep at a 45 degree angle as the boat was pounded by waves, watching my bike get covered with sea water (more on this in the next post) and intermittent to extreme sea sickness, it was an adventure I wouldn’t take back! A few photos from the journey…
