Three New Ways to Exercise on Ambergris Caye

Last week, I laid down some Summer 2017 ambitions – Part One and Two in fact – that ranged from trying a new breakfast spot to unplugging on a remote atoll in Southern Belize.  There were over 10 items and I’ve embarked, so far, on only one.   Attending a yoga class or 10 inKeep reading »

Sunday Morning Serenity: Yoga at Beautiful Ak’Bol Resort

Ak’Bol Yoga Retreat and Eco-Resort is located about 1 mile north of the bridge in a beautiful neighborhood called Tres Cocos, on a very pretty stretch of ocean.

Before 10am in San Pedro: There’s A Ton Going on in this Town

I was up early today – I won’t describe why…it just had to do with my dog & some cat poop and…that’s enough said.  But it certainly was an early morning Halloween trick.  Best to get up, do the laundry and get some distance from the situation. First, while driving south, I ran into a 5kKeep reading »
