D-day finally came. November 27th, 2015.

I still remember the feeling I had when I said goodbye to Finland — and a very BIG goodbye to the winter (yeah, it had started snowing already) — and got on the plane.

Everything went OK…….if you exclude the fact that I had to pay an extra 300 freaking Euros at the airport, because my suitcases were so heavy!  UGH!

PTY Tocumen Airport

Yeah; that’s what they call their airport. The first thing that struck me when I stepped out of the airport was……….yep, you guessed it!……….the HEAT )))))  It was so hot, that I felt suffocated in my sweatshirt!

Certainly a world away from cold ol’ Finland.
