There’s also a laundromat here. Which is super cheap It’s 50 cents a wash and dry Toilet shower blocks freestanding and restaurant, which [is] awful. It’s pretty awful We just got [back] from the supermarket and as we were unloading all of the stuff All of the groceries onto a car a drunk dude goes that’s my cart if you want to use it you got a painting Then I was helping alone to do that and some other guy goes I’ve got your gas fitting which you’ve been after for about a week So I like to run off and now Elena is over with the drunk dude on the boat Unloading off of it Unloading all the shopping and I’m thinking I’m going to get in trouble when I get home Doesn’t he know? Okay monique. Hello, jim. Oh, not me. She didn’t give you any money. No no no dinero [oh], no, no, no Dinero – [okay] Okay, [a] lovely lady code Emma took us for a tour of a city. She calls home. Do you mind if I film you I? tell my [boyfriend] he’s australian yeah – yes, and he’s Obsessive, we’re really [likable] [I] want [I] wonderful and he both a favor everything he have to our fix yeah to fix yeah, I have to do many jobs there, but It’s a project. Yeah, he’s right. That’s really cool Basically the City is divided into two Parts one being the old town which is filled with cute little alleyways and has a very rich [history] will have a new This altar here they when the pirates were coming. They painted it black so they didn’t know it was cold Henry Morgan And there was there was old tunnels connecting the different churches So when the [fire] would come they’d like pull the lid off the tunnel Jump down underneath applied in one and go from Church to church hiding from the pirates massive energy shields burning them and The other part of the town is [the] new town or the [city] We much preferred hanging out in the old town drinking coffee and catching live music at some of the many cool bars and restaurants So I became pretty interested in the pirates and the history of panama And I ended up organizing a tour with a guy [for] [one]. This is my new friend one is that to a guy for the day is going to show us all about Panama City one of the Interesting things that I did learn was that the reason for all of the pirate [activity] in the area was because so much 60% of the gold Actually came to panama and then up [through] the portobello the name Portobello is Spanish for beautiful port before it was all Transported from there bullshit to spine so insane amounts of gold lots of Angry violent Pirates mMM This trail here was where the gold and silver was taken by [mill] to and from Panama City and Portobello? It is called the Royal Trail. I Also, learned that some of the local alcohol was related to the history of the area. I start with a bounce all right. Thanks, okay Now below the conquistador discovered the South Seas in 1513 he incorrectly named it because he crossed the panamanian isthmus from North to South This was eventually renamed by Magellan as the pacific Balboa was well-liked and made friends with a benevolent approach to the local Indians until he was beheaded by padres de Avila who founded Panama City in 1519 Where are we right? We’re at Old kind of market seadrill, so this was the central point of panama back in the day That’s where we just were out there in 1572 Sir Francis drake sacked the town of Nombre their deals which is close to Portobello? but no longer exists, L bracket as it was eventually known as Intercepted a mule line close by carrying huge amounts of gold making him rich and famous He sailed around the world and something Spanish, Armada There was no way you could come in here all these candles pointing that way Across on the other [shore] you can see Kernels at the bottom and higher above Pointing that way there was another fort which was this pamphlet to construct the canal over at the corner which had more cameras point? In that way and there is another fort over there with more cannons pointing that way you don’t even have to Aim you just shoot that you feed whatever is coming into the bay so I had it henry Morgan get in here and He came from behind from the land That’s why he was able to take [expecially] this fort and then the next one [and] the next one Yes, I’ll try captain Morgan. [thanks]. Okay. Thank you very much Captain Morgan the true pirate [themed] Buccaneer and privateer Henry Morgan successfully attacked Portobello in 1668 he later attacked the very beautiful fourth of San Lorenzo [on] his way down [to] panama I’m here at San Lorenzo Fort and this is where Henry Morgan started his Attack down to Panama city is where it all started he sacked the city of panama in 1671 But was unable to get most of the gold because whilst the pirates were getting completely drunk the Galleon lusts and TcM attorney Dad left port loaded with most of the gold As you can see there is a rich nautical history in the area of Panama City Rally was only able to scratch the surface here But he really does love those parts while Rally did his little history tour I jumped on a bus to the gamboa rainforest To check out an animal shelter These volunteers rescue injured animals from all around the area some of the animals being slots Are Gertie’s Which are just the weirdest little creatures? I’ve seen in a while. [I] know what you want Rothchilds Porcupines small crocs alligators and [ant] Eaters Iguanas and a Few years ago a local man bought in what he literally thought was an injured [Kitt] turns out She’s a very rare species of leopard with a wild gene She’s gotten so big now and will soon be moved to another larger shelter out of the country for breeding That very morning a tiny baby sloth had just been brought in after it had fallen out of a tree It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in [my] life female hormones raging.

Yeah luck [metal] breath ready One thing we’ve just gotten done too is podcast [if] you haven’t already done So I highly recommend downloading some podcast Especially if you had it seen you don’t have a large crew it sort of makes you feel less alone Having another voice talking to you, and you’re learning my Alex see It’s just really [proven] [gum] if I were making a stupidity scale I would make the high scores [being] fiat be lots of stupidity right like let’s go all the way [we’re] doing the ironing crow me, babe – ality Easy Now you’re exercising or thinking online.

  1. Fabulous video as usual. I love you guys and your spirit of adventure which means learning by trial and occasional error. Handy your asymmetric spinnaker says Tack and Clew clearly so you know which way round to rig it next time! Looking forward to the next videos & big crossing you have now done! XX

  2. These videos are all so well done, I enjoy hearing all the history that you guys incorporate! If you ever make it to Hawaii there's so much history to learn here too and also tons of exploring to do😊

  3. You guy's are so great at finding awesome music! So good that it's hard to find some songs on youtube, where else do you get your music from?

  4. Yup you guys are incredibly watchable. Nice mix – travelogue – sailing stuff and good diving diving. Look forward to Glapagos.

  5. Probably one of your better episodes ever, I am a history buff and loved the history that Riley talked about while in Panama City.

  6. Riley: 9:13
    To take a quote from "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" –
    "Alarm bells are ringing Willie"

    LOL – your videos are GREAT…!

  7. I think your pirate response plan was pretty good and how you implimented it OK, especially not getting overly aggressive but still making it technical difficult and obvious you were not going to take fright and give them everything. Elena putting her head up wasn't to plan and if there is a next time (statistically unlikely) I'm sure you've learn't that thats not the time for double checking. Arming yourself ultimately leads to an arms race which ultimately you will loose or end up replacing your mast with a canon. I'm not sure if there is any kind of emergency radio EPERB type of message you could send but that would be my other suggestion. You can always call rescuers and tell them it was not a dangerous attack but your were ultimately attacked so I cannot see that any kind of emergency service would take you for a false claim. You're safe, and you didn't kill or injure some chancers, if you had acted differently you might not be … Great sunset ! ) Sorry I pulled out of Pateron but I could see your exponential growth in funding and decided I should fund my own sailing project. Great watching you guys as always.

  8. When you finish this Riley, you should do Voice over work. Good money, plenty free time, and easy. There's a good book, Voice Over – Behind the Mic on amazon might help if ur interested.

  9. hi guys~I have been enjoying your awesome videos for quite sometime….thank you! BBCWorld Service does a great podcast that I always listen to, and May 24ths edition has a story of one fellows survival after falling overboard for 28 hours…lots to think about and thought you would be interested!….



  10. You're pretty naïve when it comes to security. You let some drunk guy on board with your GF alone. I shake my head often while watching your channel. Don't ever be complacent. Complacency will get you hurt or worse. Cheers, be safe.

  11. Great stories and interesting history Riley!!
    Elayna – you're the greatest with people – friendly as always!
    Cheers and good winds!

  12. I love your perscription glasses, Elayna! Do you happen to know which brand and model they are? 🙂 I'm currently looking for new ones and fell in love with yours!

  13. you might want to concider filter your fuel before putting in your tank… you might be able to get more fuel driving by doing this and plus it will help for longer engine life. Just wanted to put my two sent in for your… great videos and im very inspired and will be doing the same real soon with my gal friend!! happy sailing!!

  14. A Ham Radio on the boat would give you people to talk to from all over the world from your boat. Talk back to home etc. You would be amazed at how far away you could talk from your boat. Maritime mobile it would be called.

    Plus there are maritime mobile nets listed on the internet you can check into and find out weather and talk to other people etc. Get help if needed etc.
    Do a search for maritime mobile net and you will see all of them.

  15. As a past security specialist there are tons of "Non-Lethal" weapons you can use like, up to and including; Pepper Spray semi-automatic rifles and such. Just ask Dog the Bounty Hunter when you get to Hawaii lol. There are specific stores with all kinds of non-lethal deterrents. Good luck and be more safety conscious. Precious cargo and all. Peace

  16. def have some type of gun id think. and 12 flairs for your flair gun lol. just incase you run out of ammo you can shoot them with flairs and have spare haha

  17. Elena your one tough chick. And a class act at the same time. You make these videos that are beautiful to watch even more beautiful. TY

  18. i never knew i was such a fan of the ocean untill i started watching you guys videos its so beautiful out there. i cant stand the English accent drives me crazy but its so adorable listening to elayna talk. again you guys be safe out there take care great videos.

  19. Enjoying the series very much, I especially liked the history part of this episode. Riley is getting way better at his part in these videos, Elay has been awesome from the start. Keep up the good work guys and stay safe.

  20. Really Interesting book about Pirates, Give it a Read, You won't be disappointed!!!!

  21. I don't like big cities either. Seen from the air that are like an infected boil on the face of a beautiful woman.

  22. Just stumbled across your channel when I was up sick one night. Thank you for such great videos. Stay safe and enjoy your travels.

  23. I'd love to see these two spend a year just sailing around the thousand of islands surrounding Australia. Lets keep the adventure going.

  24. you guys don't seem like hard drinkers from the looks of that tug, haha different from my family and my brothers sail boat

  25. Hi Guys! I am watching Your great videos from Hungary and at 7:56 i recognized Hungarian drinks among the lot of other drinks. Did You make that photo in Panama or cut it in from the net? Nevertheless it was great to see some products from my country in Your video (especially alcohol).. 🙂 Keep on producing these awesome videos please!

  26. Really enjoying your videos, guys; and especially appreciate the way you highlight the histories, cultures, natural environments, and people of the places you visit! I've been laid up for ten days after a surgery, and watching your adventures have kept me sane. Gracias and buen viaje!

  27. You two make me wish I was young again! Love the videos. Particularly love the trips to Panama as I have a residency visa for Panama and spend about 5 or 6 weeks a year there and will be there in 4 weeks time. Keep up the good work, I feel as though I have been on holiday :).

  28. Since you like the pirate stories – here's a good read about the golden age of piracy, especially in the eastern Caribbean: "The Republic of Pirates: Being the True and Surprising Story of the Caribbean Pirates and the Man Who Brought Them Down" by Colin Woodard. There's a Kindle edition, not sure about an audible version.

  29. Riley—I love your passions mate. Love how something will tickle your fancy and just carry you away. I've always said that a person's passion is always the most beautiful part of him/her! Makes for a good episode, too!

  30. One of the most famous boats from the YouTube perspective in the Panama area is Nike on the SV Karl , white spot pirates or untie the lines. She's been in the country for years rebuilding a boat she bought there. And, working on a Charter in the Atlantic part time. And, a couple sails around near there, The lady is a vet and the husband her assistant, and they volunteer helping animals all over panama . SV Chuffed.

  31. Hey! so im trying to catch up on all the videos I haven't watched, which has been fun, but I saw the podcast thing you guys mentioned.Now im sure you have plenty to listen to, or may already be onto this, but my all time favourite podcast is "Conversations with Richard Fiedler" Its on the ABC in Australia, maybe you have heard of it, but its very interesting / funny / informative and sometimes educational.Thanks again

  32. My ancestors attacked Spanish Galleons and stole their gold. Thanks for showing the history in Panama.

  33. G'day, Riley and Elena! It's really late right now, 3:08 a.m. I've binge watched La Vagabonde Adventures since two weeks ago when I accidentally came across your channel. As I come to a close, I want to say, I'm terribly concerned after watching this episode ,simply, because even though it was the first La Vagabonde when this incident happened, I find it to be extremely compromising of your, Elena and precious Lennys safety when showing where it is that she's to hideout when that happened.Again, I know that was the first La Vagabonde, nonetheless, it still speaks volumes to anyone who may have bad intentions, you guys are quiet vulnerable as it is, so less is more, don't give away your safety, in other words,don't educate a potential perpetrator, your guys security measures don't need to be made privy to others,hence, don't record your guys security measures for all to see, that should only be between you and Elena. God Bless you guys, I keep all three of you in my prayers, thank you so very much for sharing your life's adventures with all,you guys are AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT together, the EMBODIMENT OF ALL THAT'S GOOD IN THE WORLD!! 😇

  34. Fascinating episode after reading The Path Between the Seas. Some history not in the book and some in. I'm way behind in current episodes and events but this is awesome stuff! What an adventure you are on!
