You Better Belize It

The winter blues have hit with a vengeance this week. Again.

And again, I found myself pouring over pictures of tropical islands and palm trees.

What else is a girl to do?

Maybe dream of sundresses, picnics and being able to go outside without twenty layers.

But that's about it.

I digress...

The island Caye Caulker, Belize really captured my heart this summer {if you can't tell by my second post in a row about Belize}. It's certainly not the built-up touristy Meccas such as Cabo and many islands in the Caribbean. Rather, you have to get to this island by a 15 person plane, boat or swimming :) Golf carts and bicycles are the modes of transportation around the island. The local people welcome you with such warmth, you almost feel like family to the taxi driving that brought you back from the bar to your hotel.

Belize, te extra├▒o muchisimo.

Also, yes, those are sharks right below this. Yes, I swam with them. YOLO, my friends.

Oh, hi, winter. Are you leaving soon?

Polar vortex? What?

Only a week into January, and I'm already wishing for warm weather and springtime! Thankfully, temps should be in the 30s in good ole New England tomorrow, and I'm considering that a heat wave at this point. Beach day, anyone?

So, naturally, the remedy to subzero temperatures is to look back at pictures from last summer in San Pedro, Belize. I'm am absolutely aching for the perfectly clear water and afternoons spent lounging underneath the palm trees. As much as I love cozying up on the couch, reading under a cloudless sky and sunshine sounds much more attractive at the moment. 

Oh, and these pictures of the gorgeous blues and greens of the ocean surrounding Ambergris Caye are not filtered in any way, shape or form. The water and sky are just that perfect.


You can find me dreaming of turquoise seas for the next three months.
