Panama City Vacation Photo Blog

I took a vacation to Panama, and visited Panama City and the nearby beach, Playa Gorgona. I went to popular tourist destinations, but was backpacking and doing cheap travel. Here are my photographs from Panama. For more details on my trip go to Wanderjahr Jill's Travel Blog

Panama Canal Photo Blog

These are my photos from my trip to the Panama Canal in Panama City. I went to the Mira Flores Locks to watch the boats and ships pass through the locks. It is really interesting to watch how the locks work. Water is slowly let out of one side, into the other side of the lock, taking the ship down to the level of the other lock. The sea level on either side of the Canal is different because it is placed in the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. For more details about my trip visit my blog at : Wanderjahr Jill Travel Blog
