Hello from Belize!
Basically tropical paradise!
I’ve had a bit of a difficult time transitioning into this trip, mostly from the natural disaster craziness of the past two weeks. Wish I could say I’ve been exploring Belize more, but mainly I’ve just been resting. As soon as I arrived, I booked it for the islands and have not moved since.
The events of the last couple weeks have made me uneasy. Experiencing Tropical Storm Lidia firsthand, and flying through Houston and seeing the effects of Hurricane Harvey were a lot to take in. Then I learned there was a devastating 8.1 earthquake in Mexico the day that I left. Plus there are three active hurricanes in the vicinity of where I’m at (Irma, Jose, and Katia). It’s been a whirlwind, to say the least, but I’m finally feeling ready to move onward (and inland!)
Here are some photos from the beautiful island of Caye Caulker. I’ve been here the last five days. There are no cars here (only golf carts and bicycles). The island is tiny, only 8 feet in height at it’s tallest, and situated on the Belize Barrier Reef. The saying here is “Go Slow” which is just fine with me 🙂
Up next: Guatemala!!!
