Travel writer Rosie Bell accidentally found herself in Panama back in 2015 and that was the start of an enduring love affair. Between the food, nature, the energy and, of course, the beaches, she couldn’t believe her eyes. She was so impressed that she left London and moved there entirely. She wrote her first book ‘Escape to Self‘ while sitting and pondering in Panama City’s various quaint cafes. She also writes and talks about Panama for Forbes Travel Guide, Fodor’s, Lonely Planet, and pretty much anyone who’ll listen.
