The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives and the world of travel. In 2020, travel demands drastically fell because of fear of traveling and global efforts to stop the spread of the virus. Travel warnings were heightened, and restrictions were mandated. Planes have been grounded. Airports became deserted. Globetrotters were stuck at home. After more than a year of lockdown, travelers were back flying. My travel buddy, John, and I traveled to Panama in March 2020. It was one of the first few countries in Central America that reopened its borders to vaccinated travelers. So, after a year of not traveling, our itchy feet took us there. It was our comeback trip. Panama is a country in Central America famous for its 48-mile canal that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. Canal De Panama is one of the world's most strategic transportation hubs. The American Society of Civil Engineers recognized it as one of the "Seven Wonders of the World."
