If you don’t take the time to approximate the time and distance your characters take from point A to point B, you risk inconsistencies which your detail-oriented readers will pick up on. You don’t want your troupe leaving too late to realistically catch the festival in the next town, or save their friend from his scheduled execution in the next kingdom. If you find they would be arriving too early, you can always throw obstacles in their way to slow them down.
Before you can calculate distance, you need a scaled map. A scale is a measurement showing how many inches/millimeters represent a number of miles. My own map scale: 1 inch = 100 miles. Now that you have your scale, you can begin measuring. Rarely do you want to measure the direct distance however – roads curve, adventurers have to backtrack, or a lake crosses their path. An easy trick is to use a piece of string or floss instead of a straight edged paper or ruler. You can curve the string along the exact path, cut it off, pull it straight and then measure it.
Now that you have the distance, you can begin
Panama is a country of cultural and natural beauty; its roots reach back into history as a trade hub and today, its skyline ever-evolving as a real estate and travel hotspot. But with all the widely-publicized beauty the country retains, here are our 5 spots you’ll rarely read about in pamphlets or see on TV.
- Isla Canas, Los Santos: This small island just south of Pedasi in Panama’s Azuero Peninsula is a gem waiting to be discovered. It is the home to a thriving native population, some of the most secluded beaches in the country, and the nesting location of giant leatherback turtles. Bring a tent as few, if any, accommodations exist.
- Lago Bayano, Darien: This giant lake sits in the province of Darien which, on paper, is a dangerous place due to its proximity to the border with Columbia. However, this region is far north enough to void you of harm; its pristine good looks enough to impress even the most seasoned eco-traveler. Explore the caves surrounding the rim of the lake, or discover hidden waterfalls on perhaps on of Panama’s most far-flung paradises.
- Boca Brava, Chiriqui: An island, lying just off the coast of Boca Chica in
Siem Reap City is located at the Northwestern part of Cambodia and is home to the majestic Angkor Wat Temple. It was built in the 12th century at the peak of the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Wat is a UNESCO world heritage site and is the highlight of most travels to Siem Reap City. But, aside from the Angkor Wat, there are many other beautiful temples to see around the region and a rich culture and history to be discovered in this quaint little city.
TRAVELING FROM MANILA, PHILIPPINES
The most convenient way to get there is to fly directly to Siem Reap airport. Other travelers exploring South East Asia fly to the capital of Phnom Penh and take a 5-6 hour bus ride to Siem Reap City. For my trip from I flew directly to Siem Reap from Manila. The flight took approximately two and half hours.
Make arrangements with your hotel to have a shuttle or Tuk-Tuk driver meet you at the airport. If your hotel is located at the town center, the trip from the airport will take about 15 to 20 minutes.

Very early in life we begin travelling. First we travel from our mother’s womb into the wide wonderful world we now inhabit. Next we travel home from the hospital, if we were born in a hospital. We travel a lot during the years we live at home. We go to school. We go with our parents on vacations. We go to camps. We find all sorts of places to go and explore.
When we leave home and begin making a life for ourselves there will be as much or as little travel as required. You may travel only to and from work except for vacation time. Or you may find ways to spend every available moment travelling somewhere or other. It really depends on how much you are curious about the rest of the world and what people are doing there.
Modes of Travel
Most of us have a car and use it a lot. In addition to the travel that is necessary it can be great fun to get in the car and go exploring.
I remember how excited I was when I got my first driver’s license and how put
