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.


  1. I love the name of this post, so punny ;)

    And Belize looks so warm, colorful and inviting! Perfect for taking a break from this winter bitterness! I'm so insanely jealous right now!

    1. Thank you - I got lots of punny names from visiting this gorgeous island! The local people loved cracking them around visitors :)
