Last Days in Belize, March 2015

Our last days in Belize were spent in Caye Caulker, an island without paved roads. We were lucky enough to stay at Seaside Cabanas.  A friend in Placencia said it was the nicest place to stay in Caye Caulker and we agreed. And it was a great price.

A day on a catamaran was a highlight. I decided it would be my happy place forever after!  We splayed ourselves on giant beanbags for hours, alternately swimming and being lulled by the waves and brilliant blue of sky and ocean. Absolutely divine!

We spent the rest of our days reading by the pool–I think Deb and I each read 4 or 5 books–and forgetting what day of the week it was. Deb discovered a fruit stand that sold liters of freshly squeezed tropical fruits that were delicious. We ate on the beach at tables with swings instead of chairs. And experienced hammock heaven.

What a glorious trip, thanks to my friend Deb. She researched and planned and plotted so that our trip included the best of Belize!  It was a memorable trip that I will never forget.

"She's crazy and loud but she loves you!" That's what they tell my infant granddaughter to prepare her for my visit, so I thought it would be a great way to prepare you. And while I may not always be crazy or loud, one thing is always true: I LOVE people. That's at the heart of my passion for travel. I love getting to know people from different cultures who speak different languages, eat different food, have different ideas and opinions. I'm endlessly curious and make a point of reading about the countries I visit. Instead of saying "that's not how WE do it," I enjoy identifying strengths in diverse cultures, and learning about their way of life. I LOVE road trips! I have great memories of monthlong vacations growing up. Dad always had a van--before they were popular--and invited anybody who wanted to join us. My road trips within the United States will be featured in "The Lower Case Travelogs." Be sure to buckle your seat belt. I execute illegal u-turns if a bakery or estate sale is spotted!
