Well, it snuck up on us.  We just had Christmas here in Bloomington.  My brother in law Nathan is staying with us here in Bloomington through the rest of the month, and has been the last three, so we all stayed in and enjoyed some holiday spirit.

But tonight we are leaving for vacation, down to Belize for ten days.  I’m still kind of shaking my head in disbelief actually.

In the last few weeks and months, I’ve written a few posts and just haven’t actually published them.  I’m not sure why, it’s not necessarily that I don’t want them out there, but I’m being a lot more selective about what makes the cut.  Perhaps this trip will change that.  Travelling and writing go together, so we’ll see what happens.

I enjoy experiencing new cultures and I’m sure this one will be no different.  I’ll try to write up posts as much as possible, though the once per day expectation from Costa Rica won’t be happening, mostly due to it feeling forced and less all encompassing than New Zealand was.

To all my friends and family, thanks for making every day a trip to be excited about.  It’s been an incredible year and more are on the way.  Enjoy yourselves and have a safe and happy NYE.
