Over the last few years I’ve seen parts of 24 countries. One week from today I will begin exploring number 25.
Next Monday I’m flying to Belize, a small Central American country with a Caribbean coastline and countless small islands, for an extended stay. Seeing and doing many of the famous tourist activities (marine reserves, Mayan ruins, caves, snorkeling, cocktails with umbrellas) are definitely on the to do list. Plans for getting my PADI open water SCUBA certification are in the works and if I can find a Spanish tutor I’ll try to take advantage of that; but since English is the official language and spoken as much or more than Spanish and Belizean Creole that might be somewhat difficult.
After being a tourist for a week or so, the beach will be the catalyst for relaxation and inspiration as I attempt to work on (and – fingers crossed – finish) an ongoing project.
Stories and images of sand and sun will appear here in the coming weeks. Come back and check them out!
