Border Crossing: From Costa Rica to Panama

by Brenna Holeman

Costa Rica and Panama
Here is a little video my best friend Kerri (who is also an amazing vlogger) made last summer. Watch as we discuss backpacks, no man’s land, and just how scary it is to cross the border between Costa Rica and Panama by foot!

Loooove it! How do you 2 look so freaking beautiful walking in what I’m sure was super hot humid weather with backpacks on your back??? You have to share your secret with me? 🙂

This is good to know when I [finally] make my way down there! And, yes, you both look gorgeous! [my backpack does the exact same thing too!!] xx

Andi – Ha ha, maybe the camera was forgiving that day? Trust me, we were sweating!!

Ali – Any tips you need, please let me know! The border crossings were all very easy in Central America…

I love, love Cahuita! Great info 🙂

I also thought you two looked amazing!! In Central America if I have to walk outside with a backpack I usually look like a drowning dog.

I loved this video though, informative and funny! “I’m just gonna walk where you’re walking….WOAH!!”

That’s the spirit. You have not idea where you are, where you are going to and how much the tickets are but you keep going ahead LOL with smiles upon your face!! 🙂

Sojourner – Thank you!

Rika – Ha ha! I feel as though I look like a drowning dog most of the time but apparently in this video I kept it together…

Agness – Thank you! I always try to keep that spirit when I travel…
