Patrick, who works as a surveyor in Colorado, recently took a trip to Panama. He traveled to the Central American country in April to see the canal there.
“For most people it’s probably like any other river or boat ride, but for me it was very enjoyable as I’m fascinated with engineering projects. It took about 8 hours to cross the canal from one end to the other,” he shared. his experience with Bored Panda.
“Along the way, there are many ships passing from countries all over the world,” Patrick revealed to us, that it was a wonderful adventure.
Bored Panda also asked Patrick to share some of his do’s and don’ts with our readers. “I think the most important thing is to remember to have fun. No trip will ever be 100% perfect,” he said. It is essential not to insist that every little detail is “perfect”.
“There will be times when the weather gets bad, places are closed, it’s hard to find good food, etc. It’s all part of the experience. Enjoy your time because you will miss it when you are out of town. back home,” Patrick shared.

The social media project is all about showing off the great things you might encounter on your travels, and it also shines a light on the truly awesome legacy left behind by ancient civilizations.

At Bored Panda we are big fans of travel and new experiences. However, at the same time, it is important not to be too publicized before your trip. Keeping realistic expectations of what you’re likely to experience will help you stay satisfied with your adventure, overall. Very recently, we spoke to one of the moderators helping run the multi-million member r/travel subreddit.
They emphasized that keeping our expectations low or having none at all will make the trip better, whatever it is. Another thing that can help you have more fun is to put in the effort and research more about where you are going, the history of the place, the local culture and customs.
“I think the more popular a place is, the easier it is to become overrated and disappointing,” the r/travel moderator pointed out, pointing out that some travelers fall prey to Paris syndrome. This is when your expectations are not met and you are shocked and disappointed by the culture.
“For many people learning the local culture, on the surface or maybe more, is a fun trip, for others sitting at an all-inclusive resort at the beach is ideal. The way you enjoy your vacation is up to you. Luckily, we’re not all the same and boring,” they shared, explaining that everyone travels for different reasons. No one should feel obligated to have fun in a certain way. Traveling is freedom.
One place you might consider skipping is Hollywood. Oh, we might all think it’s full of glitz and glamour, but the reality is nothing like what we see in the movies. It’s important to have a conversation with friends or locals around the world to see if a particular popular spot lives up to the hype. Juice isn’t always worth it.
“There’s a popular, supposedly must-see attraction that’s overrated in Los Angeles, and that’s Hollywood. Everyone’s heard of it and everyone wants to see it, but once you get to the real Hollywood, you’re sure to be disappointed,” Los Angeles-based entertainment expert Mike Sington recently shared with Bored Panda.
“It’s very crowded and there’s almost nothing to see but the stars on the sidewalk. Once you’ve done that, and you have to dodge the crowds to even navigate the sidewalks, it’s I would suggest going through Hollywood itself and taking one of the professionally run studio tours that all major movie studios offer,” he said Hollywood isn’t as great as some tourists might expect it.
“Because the city is often portrayed in movies and on TV as a glamorous place, that’s often all visitors expect. Of course, Los Angeles is beautiful and diverse, and the weather is spectacular, but keep in mind it’s a very big city, so it has all the problems and urban sprawl of most big cities,” Mike explained.
“As a long-time resident of Los Angeles, I know very well what is worth visiting and what is not. Here is my personal list of places not to miss for a first-time visitor:
- Griffith Observatory and Griffith Park
- Getty Center
- Runyon Canyon
- Santa Monica Beach
- The Grove
- Los Angeles County Museum of Art
- The wide
- Universal Studios
- Walt Disney Concert Hall
- Academy Film Museum
- beverly hills
- Mulholland Drive,” Mike shared some of the must-see spots that are definitely worth visiting.
