My name’s Rebecca. Over 11 years ago I moved from Manhattan, NYC to San Pedro, Belize. NY Bond trader to jobless and unable to work in a foreign country. Holy crap, what a change. I spent a full year deciding if Belize was right for me, over 3 years managing a sometimes gritty bar & restaurant and now 5+ years travelling, living and writing this blog. And for the last 3, helping my boyfriend run Cayo Frances Farm & Fly, a seriously special spot on the west side fo Ambergris.
As you can imagine, I’ve seen the good, awesome, bad and the ugly (though not often). I’ve got lots to say and so here’s my website and my daily blog.
I originally set out to show you all sides of life on the island of Ambergris Caye and now it’s time to expand to the amazing country of Belize. So much to see in one tiny country.
For more information on how and why I moved here, an estimate of how much it costs to live in San Pedro and advice about packing and planning, check out my post series about my expat life.
As always, feel free to contact me with any and all questions you have. Feedback (positive is always preferred but not absolutely mandatory) is also welcome. It’s VERY helpful to me if you try to answer your own question by searching my site. Also, I can NOT find you a job. Honestly…I can’t. I would if I could.
You stopped just short of Woody’s Wharf where Frank does an excellent job of keeping the beach clean.
If they only knew the seagrass is actually stopping their lovely beach from eroding banyan bay is a good example…so is that strip by BC’s
I always say good morning to the guys I pass raking seagrass up north as I do my morning runs MWF. It’s a tough job in the sunshine, day after day. Most of them are very friendly. I have a favorite too, an older gentleman. He always looks happy to see me, which really makes my day. My heart smiles after we greet each other.
Where does all the sea grass go? Can it be used as landfill? Compost? Calls for an investigative report!
That’s a good question…I see trucks picking it up sometimes so my guess is landfill. But next time, I will ask.
