This is going to be the last post on my travel to Belize in June…for the time being as past adventures await their publicity and new adventures are coming up.
So, I told you that I was on a 3-day sailing trip through the most ridiculous blue-green-turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea with the Raggamuffin guys. Please take the trip if you can, it’s amazing. I took this one on tiny-tiny Tobacco Caye during our second overnight stop. Snorkeling is not my preferred water activity (after all, I am a diver), but I saw the biggest sting ray in these waters, maybe one meter span if not more, and the guy came pretty close! After having a delicious BBQ (I love jerk chicken!), I grabbed my Nikon and went to explore an island that is approximately the size of a football pitch. Maybe a bit more…so a couple of huts and B&Bs fit onto it. The only thing you have to get accustomed to is the heat, even during the night it’s rarely below 28 degrees (Celsius of course, who the hell is still using Fahrenheit? Oh yeah, right…’Mericans and Belizeans…and the Bahamas and the Caymans and the splendid country of Palau). Below you’ll find a random selection of pics I took with my iPhone or GoPro…should have used a filter with the GoPro…hey, just another reason to go back.
So what’s up next…Travelwise the next trip is going to take me to ‘Merica for three weeks. It also gives me the opportunity to travel to Hyde Park on Hudson, where I’ll visit the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and FDR’s home. I have benefitted from this institution while writing my doctoral thesis, so I am truly looking forward to that. After that I’ll go sleep in one of the most famous hotels in movie history…just one hint: “Wendy, I’m home”…another hint: Jack Nicholson…now you got to have it right? If not, educate yourself ;-)…
Oh yeah, check out this awesome band from the UK called Haelos…you may not like the EU anymore my dear Brits, but we still like your music…most of it.
As always, go travel and have the most amazing time…Tata!
