The Art of Travel


You’ve planned or are planning your trip to Panama and want that little something extra before you leave to get the excitement going?  Check out the movie “The Art of Travel”.  It’ll become a favorite among your travel movies.

A young guy about to get married, have kids along with the house and white picket fence and things go horribly wrong.  Queue the violin music.  He decides to go on his “honeymoon” by himself and problems occur along his trip as he explores Central America.

That being said, the majority of the movie is about him meeting up with a small group on a mission to cross the Darien Gap, which is a 100 mile long tract of jungle between Panama and Colombia. The Darien Gap has long been known to be dangerous but that only encourages this group to move forward.  The scenery is raw and beautiful.  I won’t say anything more about it as I don’t want to spoil the end of this trek and the end of the movie, but put your explorer hat on and enjoy it.

The art of travel is to deviate from the current plan.”
