Day off in Panama City – Preparing the bike for a boat ride!

Taking some time out in Panama City, I organised a boat ride from Panama to Colombia, and prepared my bike by packing it down ready.

Booking a boat ride from Panama to Colombia

Organising a boat to Colombia was extremely easy through the hostel here in Panama City.

Richie, the guy that owns the place, knew of a boat leaving on the 28th, and a quick phone call and it was all booked.

By the time various deposits, transport costs and taxes are added up, its basically 400 dollars. Not exactly cheap, but I am hoping that the experience will more than outweigh the cost.

I spent the day disassembling my Bob Yak trailer, phoned home and did a few other chores. A two dollar carton of wine was just the job at the end of the day.
