The Trip to Panama

“The Trip to Panama” (in German: “Oh how beautiful Panama is”) Who knows how many travel blogs have used the title of this popular children’s book by Janosch, but, before we get to Panama, here are some photos of our last few days in Costa Read More

On board

Our families and friends gave us many useful presents for our trip. Many things that we had been given on other occasions, however, are aboard, too. Here is a picture gallery that contains exclusively big and little things that had NOT been intended for this Read More
