So…back in Europe it is…god that’s so…mmmmmh…different (diplomatically speaking) and I can’t wait to take the big bird again. So as I mentioned here, I went to Belize from end of May to mid-June. The trip of my life! Ever travelled alone? No? Do it, it’s the most mind-blowing, elevating, enthusiastifying (does that exist?) way of travelling. I met so many great and joyful people, it’s insane. Where do you guys hide all the time?
The main photograph of this blog post (the B&W one) was taken on tiny tiny tiny Rendezvous Caye during a 3-day sail trip from Caye Caulker to Placencia. The little island is barely big enough to host a football game (football=european football, cause the other one – aka American Football – is merely handegg. Played mostly with hands and with an egg. Seriously my dear Americans change it, cause soccer is no word outside your country.). During the night a tropic thunderstorm hit the region so camping was kind of an adventure ;-). The whole trip was an adventure to be honest. During the days it was all about hanging out on the boat, doing some snorkelling, and enjoying the best swimming pool there is – the caribbean sea. During evenings and nights it’s about ridiculously good and large dinner, drinking and trying hard to fall asleep either during thunder storms or hot and humid caribbean nights.
In addition to the B&W-photographs I love so much, I will also put some other pictures so you can get a glimpse on how things look like in color…even these pictures are ridiculous compared to the true colors on spot. I have never seen more different shades of blue as during the three fantastic dives at Glover’s Reef or Lighthouse Reef. It’s like stepping into a photoshopped catalogue…until you realize it is freaking true! And the best dives one could possibly imagine (more on that in the next posts).
Go and get lost in Belize, it is a wonderful and beautiful country, populated by great people with a good deal of humor (thanks to Moses, Norman and Dorin from Splash Dive Belize for educating me on cursing in Kriol ;-)). Thanks to Russ, James, Penny, Andy for hanging out in Placencia and the adventures we had together…I will never forget the trip to Laughing Bird Caye with you guys. Special thanks to Lisa for being a great dive buddy at Glover’s…I really enjoyed your company at the boat, while swimming the Caribbean or the beer and fun afterwards. Thanks to Markus and friends for hanging out on Caye Caulker and for being an awesome bunch of dive-buddies during our trips to the Blue Hole. The same applies to Jiovanni, our guide from Belize Dive Services…thanks for safely guiding us through multiple dives. Thanks to the great people I met during the sail trip (Ish, Shane, Marvin and Jacob the chef from the crew of Raggamuffin Tours; Tommy and his lovely wife, John, Jim and his wife Tan…I hope you are all enjoying yourself wherever you are :-).
Look forward to coming back to Belize one day…Tata!
