    Dome Home/Farm/Life Update: dome progress; residency vs. citizenship; Panama elections; milking cows

    We will be taking a break from recording and sharing episodes for the next few weeks. Thanks for your understanding. In this Friday's episode we just chit chat about life and the progress we've made lately on all our different projects. We share all about what's been going on with our aircrete dome home and what we'll be working on in the near future. We discuss our two year provisional residency and what that means versus what citizenship means. Panama's presidential election just happened and we had fun watching it unfold. We talk about that for a while and how really calm everything felt compared to how things feel back in the States during election time. Then we finish out the episode with some fun farm updates including first tree plantings, paddock planning for rotational grazing, and our plans to start a small dairy! We hope you enjoy listening. Our youngest son can be heard a lot in this episode, so hopefully you enjoy a cute baby voice every now and then.

  • All About Panama Series: Bugs in Panama

    All About Panama Series: Bugs in Panama

    Today Eduardo & I are talking all about bugs in Panama. We have experienced a lot of different wildlife after living in Panama, some amazing and beautiful, some not our favorite. In this episode we talk about the bugs that can be a nuisance here, how we deal with them, and how we avoid them if we can. We talk about finding a balance between good and "bad" bugs on our farm. And we discuss all the beautiful and amazing bugs we've seen here. There is a lot of water here in Panama and a lot of sunshine, which both equal LIFE! Therefore, there is a plethora of bugs and wildlife here, which makes for daily sightings of all sorts of wonderful creatures. We hope you enjoy hearing our stories and experiences.

  • Daily life in Panama - waking with the sun, coffee with the birds, farm stuff, beach days, church, baking bread and more.

    Daily life in Panama - waking with the sun, coffee with the birds, farm stuff, beach days, church, baking bread and more.

    Today we are talking all about our daily life here in Panama. We thought it might be interesting for you to get a peak into what our daily life looks like with kids, cooking, farm stuff, building a house, relaxing, having a social life, and enjoying our slower lifestyle here in Panama. So much of our life is spent outside, whether that is hanging laundry, reading books, swimming, cooking, relaxing, farm/dome stuff, walking/biking, beach fun, or just playing. We love our outdoor lifestyle, but also love our afternoons relaxing in the AC for a bit - slowing down and cooling down. There are a lot of similarities between our daily rhythm here and in the USA, because of kids and trying to keep a consistent schedule. We hope you enjoy this episode. As always, thanks for tuning in!

    What we have learned since relocating to Panama - beach never loses it appeal, really small town living, little space living lessons, learning Spanish & more

    To finish up our little three-part "reflection series," today we discuss what we have learned since moving to Panama 9 months ago. Things like how even though we live close to the beach - we still get excited every time we're there and it never gets boring; people take the time to really talk to you here; we miss cold weather; how tiny of a living space is do-able for us; enjoying life in a small, small town, and a few more. We, as always, try to intermix humor and learning experiences into our sharing. If you are considering moving/relocating to Panama, this episode could give you some good insight. We love it here and we are grateful for all the growing experiences we've had since being here. We hope you enjoy today's episode!

  • What we love about Panama & Las Lajas - less populated country, beauty everywhere, small town life, and more

    What we love about Panama & Las Lajas - less populated country, beauty everywhere, small town life, and more

    Happy Friday! For a comical, inside look into our marriage, be sure to listen to the first 7 minutes of this episode! Ha....but for real, we are excited to talk about all that we've come to love about Panama and our little pueblo called Las Lajas, since living here for 9 months now! We talk about the perks of living in a country that is not over-populated, a country that is lush and beautiful almost everywhere you look. We love living in a small town where kids can ride their bike around safely and you know all your neighbors, you see cowboys and cattle running down the road regularly, and most people's yards are covered with trees and beautiful bright flowers, our favorite local restaurants, and more!
