THE AFTERMATH after 70 days of Exile

We are back. We look back at the trip and see what we could have done better. We also look at what the trip cost us both financially and emotionally. The financial cost was easy, it was very little but the emotional cost keeps going and going and we go through a couple of counseling sessions to help out 😂😂 We also take a trip down memory lane about how I met Margarida. It is almost entirely true!

Youtube livestream TOMORROW CATAMARAN vs MONOHULLS

Thumbnail Cat vs Mono

Plukky will be discussing LIVE ON YOUTUBE the PROS and CONS of CATAMARAN versus MONOHULLS this Friday (3rd of July) 7PM Panama.

On the previous lifestream we said we would have an episode discussing this subject although we went through the footage and realized it was of a quality that didn’t fit in to “the nothing but quality” mantra. So we decided to discuss it live. The topics will be safety, ways to save money, performance, comfort, costs and that’s right chickability…

REJECTED by yet another country, will there be any end to this! | Coronavirus

We have just been kicked out of Haiti now too. So after being kicked out of Cuba 2 weeks ago, finding no refuge in Domincian Republic, Haiti is just the icing on the cake. Where can we go now? It seems hopeless but with some good skills and common sense we may finally find a place to stay, it is a pity that we have had no sleep for a week and that our skill and common sense level are at an all time low but blind stupid optimism has been know to work…

Check in nightmare in Bocas del Toro 💥🇵🇦

On the 2nd of June we had completed 14 days of quarantine on the boat in bocas del toro. On the 15th day we got clearance from the doctor and then we started the check in procedures in the country: customs, agriculture and the port captain. Unfortunately on the day, the Doctor didn’t give us our health certificate.
 
We then proceeded to immigration. The Officer told us they were not issuing visas until a later date. A few days later a new decree came from Panama City, stating they will be issuing visas of duration 1 month to 3 months to foreigners. The Immigration officer saw things differently and said she would only grant us a visa for 15 to 30 days and after that short period we would then have to sail away. She said get food and fuel, fix the boat if needed and then leave the country.
 
Long story short , a week after our quarantine had ended, we finally were given the medical declaration and were granted the usual 6 months visa 💪🏼 it sure helped speaking Spanish and being able understand their decrees. You gotta love Central American countries.
 
Now let’s enjoy freedom outside the boat.
