After moving to Panama, it took me an entire year to stop pinching myself. Every day was like Christmas morning. I would bounce out of bed before dawn, not wanting to miss even a moment of the tropical sunrise. I then planned my day so I was on my balcony or sitting by the rooftop pool to enjoy the sunset.
Now that I've lived in the Playa Bonita resort for over one and a half years, I have finally normalized my experience. I still like to get up early to watch the sunrise... but I do sleep in from time to time. I take walks on the beach... but not every day. I enjoy watching the sunset with a glass of wine in hand... and I admit, I still do that every day.
