Our first week in Panama was spent almost entirely in Panama City. Hope you enjoy our semi sketchy stories!
Here is the first video log of our, David and Sarah’s, trip to Panama!
Sarah and I (David) are officially heading to Panama this summer! I just booked the flights and am now far too excited for a trip that is still two months away. We are leaving on May 6 and won’t be home until the first week of September! Sarah and I haven’t been on a trip of this length for a few years now so it is about time.
Our main destination is the Lost and Found Lodge Eco Resort located within the Fortuna Cloud Forest an hour north from the city of David (yes, the irony). And yes, it is actually in the jungle. Check it out on google maps! We are going to be volunteering at the lodge for most of our trip, helping out with whatever they need and learning how to run a hostel. That, and practicing Spanish, of course.
The hostel is actually internet free and I am looking forward to being “disconnected” for the entire summer, but we shall throw up some posts when we periodically head into David (that’s going to take some getting used to) and tell of our adventures. Sarah has already been researching all the poisonous snakes in the area. Back to trying to make time go faster.
As an air inversion settled fog across the Lower Mainland, we headed to Mt. Seymour for a chance to see a sunrise above the dark clouds below.
David, Sarah and I recently went to explore the Chipmunk Caves near Chilliwack. The caves are small. Really small. Both David and Sarah had never been in caves this tight before.
The unknown of being in an underground environment makes caving a wonderful and exciting adventure. If you plan to head out for some subterranean exploration remember to be careful and respect the environment.
Check out the Caving Canada website for more information.

A very merry Christmas from Beyond the Everyday.
Sarah at the Chipmunk Caves
We recently went caving at the Chipmunk caves in Chilliwack, BC. The caves are small, some only the size of our bodies. Watch for our video next week.
For now, though, Beyond the Everyday will be spending some rare time apart on adventures. Sarah and David are heading off to the interior for some skiing and family time. And Matt will be heading off for a weekend of snowshoeing with some friends from back in his high-school days.
Happy Adventuring this weekend!
The 43-kilometre North Coast trail has some of the most beautiful West-Coast scenery around. From the diverse wildlife to the rugged landscape, the entire hike will keep your finger on the shutter release.
As it is with most outdoor photography on the Wet Coast, moisture is a big problem for your camera. Make sure to bring a lens cloth (or two) and hope for sun. Here are some photos of the trip.
It is finally here. Our first video and Matt’s first foray into DSLR video.
This past August we spent six days hiking the North Coast Trail which officially opened in 2008.
The trail runs 43 kilometers across the northern tip of Vancouver Island and finishes in Cape Scott Provincial Park.
