It was around the second week of July 2016 and I couldn’t remember when last I had taken a day off from work. At the time my cousin Joey was on vacation in Disney Orlando, Florida with his family. I longed for a break from work and since we hadn’t seen each other in a long time we decided to meet up in Miami on his return from Orlando.
As I began searching for flights luck was on my side! Flights were available from as low as $250 from Panama City. Some holidays were coming up towards the end of August so I thought what a perfect time! So I took a chance and bought the ticket even before getting my leave approved. Life is about taking chances and I think some of the best moments happen spontaneously.
Living alone in a new country can be depressing. Especially if you are away from family and friends and unable to see them very often.
Have you ever studied abroad or migrated to another country for a better life? Perhaps you had to move because of your family or job situation.

Packing a luggage for a trip can be a pain in the butt. You always have to consider the weight limits associated with each flight and pack accordingly. It can be frustrating thinking about having to fit all your planned outfits, shoes etc into 1 or 2 luggages. Admittedly I am not a very light packer. I love being organized and hate last minute but I always tend to pack “just in case” outfits and shoes. Most time they end up being unused. I tend to get a little paranoid thinking that I may not have sufficient clothing items when I am on my trip. Even when there should be some excitement when packing for a vacation or get away trip, it can be a tiresome task for most people.
