It’s 2012 and we are looking forward to another adventurous year, but we thought we would take a minute and look back at 2011. This helps us remember, but also lets us share with you another year of our life that has become our “norm”. We are starting to get used to this life of […]
Dear Dangriga, It’s hard to write a letter like this, but we have to. We tried to like you, we really did. We normally see the good in a lot of places, but you did disappoint. Perhaps we came with expectations. We were warned via our bus breaking down twice on the way to see […]
We met a mermaid in Hopkins. She had glorious black skin, truthful eyes and a playful nature. She jumped in and out of the water effortlessly – like nature had intended her to do. She danced in the ocean, splashing brilliant Caribbean water into the air. When she surfaced, the sparkles of water droplets beaded […]
I am going to tell you about our time in Hopkins, despite what I said in my last post. We’re not sure what it was about this town that made it so special to us. Perhaps we were just on the same frequency or we were craving its authentic vibe, but something captured and held […]
Normally, we stay away from politics in public, but the current bill, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is detrimental to anyone using the internet. On January 24th, the US Senate will vote on this internet censorship bill. This bill affects us all. If you use the internet…it affects you. SOPA Blackout Day This bill is […]
I really don’t want you to know about Hopkins. I don’t want tourism to spoil it. Placencia flirted with us, but we fell in deep love with Hopkins. So much so, that we don’t want to write about it. We want to keep it to ourselves.
If a word can be spoken that evokes the essence of the thing or place it is describing, then the word “Placencia”, is it. The sound of the word is as beautiful and exotic as the place itself. Say it out loud and slow: Pla-cen-ci-a. Gorgeous! We almost skipped stopping in Placencia. Guide books and […]
The flight to Punta Gorda, or PG Town as they call it, took us over the rolling mountains, citrus fields and streams along the beautiful coastal area of Belize. The little Cessna plane flew close to the ground, so we could really see the roll of the land and each individual citrus tree. Our flight […]
We’ve been wanting to explore more of the mainland in Belize for a while now but had not made it off the island yet. Then we got word of a Christmas Day airfare sale – $25 BZ (that’s $12.50 US) flight segments to anywhere they fly. But, where do we go? As far as possible.
Ambergris Caye is one of the largest, most visited islands in Belize. Most adults visit the island for the incredible diving and snorkeling that the Belize Barrier Reef offers, but what about activities for children, especially little kids? We’ve have lived here for 2 months with our 3 and 1 year old and have a […]
