Travelling is freedom - Basti´s global journeys

Panama

Panama might be a relatively small country, but it has so much to offer. Watching the sunrise on Caribbean side and the sunset on the same day on the Pacific side. It is a narrow strip of dense mountainous jungle with beautiful beaches which attract surfers with their waves and divers with their abundance in sea life. It´s history is quite unique too: it achieved its independence in two steps, first from the Spanish and then from Colombia. Afterwards, the Americans came and constructed one of the world´s most fascinating engineering wonder that has shaped world trade until today – the Panama Canal.
