Unbelizeable: A Day at Bread and Butter Caye thumbnail

The morning of our last full day in Hopkins Bay, I woke up anxious. The previous day, our planned excursion had been rescheduled due to spotty weather. This was our last chance. I ran to the window, and flung open the curtains to tentatively clear skies. Snappily-named Cook-Your-Catch snorkeling and fishing adventure, here we come! We… Read more

You Better Belize It: Happiness in Hopkins Bay thumbnail

We’d come from New York, New Orleans, Chicago, and Flores — three by plane, one by bus. It had been a long journey to get to a tiny fisherman’s village about three hours south of Belize City.

This photos from this past week and the one before it should explain why pretty well. While our first week in the country was spent exploring the mainland jungles… Read more

This post is coming out a little late this week, but I have a good excuse — I just couldn’t stand to be on my computer any more than necessary for the nine beautiful days my family was here! (All the other posts you’ve read recently were written and scheduled long before their… Read more

My First Eleven Foreign Countries thumbnail

Bloggers love lists. They are easy and fun to write, they do well in search engines, and they get good responses.  Recently, flipping through my passport in anticipation of my upcoming trip to Spain, I realized I had surpassed my 10th foreign country without even acknowledging the milestone! I was already at eleven. Maybe not such… Read more
