Thing I Took For Granted Until I Became an Expat in Belize

Exiting Your Comfort Zone:  Things I Took For Granted (and I Didn’t Even Know It) Until I Moved to Belize I’ve read LOTS of articles about expat life – many of them written by people who either haven’t moved abroad JUST yet…or those who have just arrived (let’s call that the “honeymoon phase” and theKeep reading »

Weekend Photos And Returning to An Old Favorite

Over the weekend, I wrote about the first rain shower I’ve felt in…months.  “Dry season” doesn’t just mean that it will be mostly sunny…it means NO RAIN.  Usually February, March and April can pass without a drop… Rainy season, on the flip side, does not mean ALL rain or rain every day.  It just meansKeep reading »

The week started HOT.  Hazy skies and talk of temperatures over 100 on the mainland.  (Breezes generally keep the island below 90 degrees F no matter what) Update from the San Pedro Sun about the heatwave and what to expect I packed up the dogs and headed to town.  To meet the boat to headKeep reading »

A Walk and Photos on McLean Lane, Tres Cocos, Ambergris Caye

A few days ago, I wandered off the beaten path…down what is now a sandy drive lined with larger homes and flowering shrubs.  You know the turn-off… It’s actually not a turn but just continuing straight from the main (paved road) to this sandy area.  Straight past the North Ambergris Caye Police Unit – IKeep reading »

How Does it Feel to Travel to/In Belize?

Thank you for all the questions…it’s SO exciting to hear that SO many people are gettingKeep reading »
