The State of Life Nomadic

Here's what's going on with Life Nomadic. The site still isn't ready, but it's getting close. I also said that it was close a month ago, so take that with a grain of salt.

The primary delay is that the site is being coded by hand from scratch. It's not built on wordpress, drupal, or anything else like that. Todd is custom coding it from the ground up. This means that it takes a lot longer to get ready, but will also be way more advanced than any other site like it.

The second delay is that we basically did zero work for two weeks while we went everywhere in Panama. Can't say I regret that at all.

A Hidden Treasure

And then there was little town of Las Terrenas in the city of Santa Barbara de Samana, about a 3 hour drive from the boisterous city of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Free of tourists, coupled with very few modern influences on culture and landscape, Las Terrenas is a very attractive destination.

This past February, I visited the little town of Las Terrenas in the city of Samana, DR with two of my girlfriends because we wanted to watch the migration of the whales. We stayed at a villa in Eva Luna, where the ethnic feel and layout unearthed senses of extreme calm and bliss. We were greeted with fresh coconuts, free wifi and a complimentary continental breakfast.

We moved around the town in Motoconchos and Quad bikes. In our bid to go whale watch, we drove the quad bike 2 hours from Las Terrenas to downtown Santa Barbara de Samana. It rained, the sun scorched, we ran out of gas in the middle of the highway, and our quad engine stopped working on our trip to downtown. It was one of the craziest travel experiences I've had in a foreign land. After 2 hours on the road, we finally made it to the commercial downtown of Samana. We went to the port and we got on a boat to go watch the Whales entertain us. Despite the crazy day we had, whale watching was definitely worthwhile.
