I’m excited to share my first post for Elite Daily has published! In it, I share ten reasons why you should visit Panama now. Read it here.

Once you’ve skimmed through that post – it’s an easy 3 minute read – and want more from my Central American experience, click through these posts from The Curious Passport archives:

If you’re a local reader and are looking for something to do this weekend in San Diego, how about embarking on Mission Trails Regional Park’s 5 Peak Challenge?

Big Rock Trail, San Diego

Part of my preparation for my month-long trip to Europe next month includes making sure I’m in tip top shape. I’m not trekking the Camino de Santiago, as I mentioned in my last post but refusing a car rental (too cumbersome) for public transport and my own two feet inevitably mean hoofing it with everything I’ll need to work remotely, live decently and dress comfortably (and most of all cutely – duh) for the weeks I’ll be abroad.

To aid in some of that stamina building, some friends and I have our goals on Mission Trails Regional Park’s Five Peak Challenge, or #fivepeakchallenge on Insta.  To complete the challenge, summit to the top of the park’s five peaks, take a photo and force yourself to do some good foam rolling afterward. I added that last part only because the hurts so good part is worth it.

Pictured above is a view from the beginning of Big Rock Trail to the top of Cowles Mountain earlier this week, our first of five peaks. Hike two is scheduled for Tuesday; see you on the trail, or wish us luck!
