Happy New Years from Belize!

It is well past time for me to write a little about our trip.  We are currently on day five, in a very nice town called Hopkins.  There are roughly 1,000 people living here and most everyone seems very happy and friendly.
Belize is a cultural melting pot unlike any I’ve seen.  There are many cultures [...]

Winter Vacation Decided: Going to Belize

It took us quite a bit of time to decide, but we’ll be headed down to Belize in December for about ten days.
We had discussed at great length going to Peru, but ultimately decided against it due to prices of flights going up, the timeliness of travel (getting there in the middle of the night [...]

Time to Get Back to Conversational

I haven’t written a lot lately, and part of that is due to the idea of writing more in depth and “professional” posts.  Of course, that’s antithetical in nature to why this site was built and what it’s supposed to be for.  This is not a professional site and it’s not supposed to be, so [...]

“Life is the most beautiful give you’ll ever get.” – Day 14

Today is our last full day of the trip.  It started by getting up at 6am and doing some quick breakfast before hopping on a bus to take a river cruise.  It’s about 45 minutes away from our hotel, and we were excited to try one last time to see some wildlife. 
It didn’t disappoint. [...]

Sun, Rest and Food: Day 12

Lots of sunshine, in fact, I’m getting pretty reddish now.  Today was another day of rest and relaxation.  We are basically taking two days not do much of anything.
That’s actually harder for me than it sounds.  I struggle to stay in and not DO something.  I don’t recall when I got this way.  Nowadays, I [...]

Playa Ocotal New Years 2013 – Day 11

Yesterday we dropped off the Montero Sport at Vamos Car Rental, but before hand stopped off in a small town just NE of the highway called Qauantil.  We picked up a few hand crafted artisan pottery pieces for family and one for ourselves and then ate lunch.  We arrived at Playa Ocotal at roughly 3pm [...]

One Night in Samara: Day 10

After a very nice long day of relaxation in Montezuma, it was time to get on the road.  And the road was not easy.  We were actually pretty concerned about getting to Samara from Montezuma as the roads are not complete and during the rainy seasons it’s a pretty difficult endeavor.  We were told that [...]

Montezuma Sunshine: Day 9

Finally got some sun.  Mostly laying around and reading today.  Infinite Jest is going to take me forever to finish.  Now getting ready for dinner and then heading off to Samara in the morning.

Bienvenido a la Oceano Pacifico: Day 8

It took us quite a while on this trip to actually see the ocean.  Most of our exploits were inland and as such sopping with rainforest weather.  Monteverde was a great stop, I actually liked the folks at La Colina so much I’d prefer to stay another day.  It’s a very inexpensive and fun place. [...]

Zip Lining and a Decided Lack of Sloth: Day 7

Yesterday was our first full day in Monteverde and to date, I’d have to judge it as the best city we’ve stayed in thus far.  It is split between two more major areas near the Santa Elena and Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological reserves.  The two areas are sprawled across a mountainous area of forests with [...]
