2day a nice song

It’s by Josh a singer and songwriter from Ohio/US of A. Check out his web site if you like the song!


This one’s called “Darién Gap”, and is about the 100-mile stretch of rebel-controlled jungle between Panama and Colombia. Despite the fact that North and South America are connected by land that’s 30 miles wide, there are no roads between them, so it’s impossible to drive to South America from here.

I was a waiter in North Baltimore
Down by the tracks and the video store where you worked
Three times a day you’d come in for a drink
I’d bring you a coffee, you’d pay with a wink and a smile

One day I saw you and pulled up a stool
I said, “Kathy, I’ve known you since first grade in school on the bus”
You always had talked about seeing the world
I never imagined you’d still be the girl down the street

I asked, “why are you still here?”, you just looked confused
You told me “you can’t drive from here to Peru in a car,
In Panama you’ll hit the Darién Gap
There’s suddenly nothing but white on the map and you’re done…

We are one, but not quite connected
We are one, but light years apart
We are one, but not quite connected
We are one…”

Now it’s been so long since I wandered away
But I still think about what you told me that day in the bar
I wonder if you’re still marooned with a globe
Waiting for someone to pave you a road to your dreams

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
