“Ramblings of a retiree in France”
The San Blas Islands are in Panama. They are a true paradise!
A visit to the San Blas islands can be an incredible experience. You will love it just like I did when I visited there. I was so pleased that we risked the unknown!
What was there to do on these paradise islands? Other than swimming, snorkeling, walking their perimeter, and relaxing on the beach… not very much! What a beautifully unfussy life!
No one is in a hurry or clutching a mobile phone. There is no TV or radio blaring. You can spend hours relaxing in a hammock suspended between two picture-perfect palm trees.
The locals are very friendly. I felt like there was a real sense of passion and pride amongst them. It was a real pleasure to meet them and talk to them.
Ha Long Bay is situated in north Vietnam round a 120-kilometer long coastline and is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons”.
The bay is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vietnam and features thousands of islands, each topped with thick jungle vegetation, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars.
Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous caves, other islands include lakes, and some support floating villages of fishermen.
A wonderful fun day in these clear waters of the Ha Long Bay
