Ode To Big Red

Saying good-bye to a long-time friend who got us through many a tough road and never left us stranded: Big Red.

Punta Gorda

Today marks one month until we leave Belize. We couldn’t leave without devoting at least a few posts to the community that’s been our home for the past 11 months.

Tobacco Caye II

Rounding out our time by the sea with my parents, we head back out to the islands — this time, the tiny little island of Tobacco Caye.

Placencia

After a relaxing time back in PG, we head for Placencia — Southern Belize’s own beachy gem — for a weekend of sand and surf, and this particular weekend: LOBSTERFEST!

Back-a-Bush & Butterflies

Back in Belize, we take ma and pa on the recently-dubbed “Toledo Adventure Trail” loop, visiting a friend’s organic farm and guesthouse and a Blue Morpho butterfly farm in San Miguel.

Finca Tatin

Like straight out of the pages of Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, we slowly motor up the country’s mightiest river and forge deep into the jungle on a little-known tributary searching for a man and a place.

Livingston II

After a relaxing day at the beach, we return to our home away from home in Livingston to soak in the last bits of civilization before heading up river into the jungle.

Playa Blanca II

One week after my parents arrival in Belize, Lori and I pack it up and drive them both down to immigration to ship them off to sea…

Welcome to the Jungle (Pt.2)

I take my ol’ man on an outing to visit a Mayan ruin and some very angry waterfalls, before we all head to Ixcacao chocolate for a traditional Belizean lunch and chocolate tasting.

Caye Caulker IV

In mid-June, Lori and I returned for our fourth time to Caye Caulker to introduce my parents to the Isle of Go-Slow and to bid farewell (for now) to the caye that started it all for us here in Belize.

Tiger Cave!

We spend Belize Labor Day (May 1) hiking through the jungle to Toledo’s own Tiger Cave to commune, yet again, with the Mayan Underworld of Xibalba.
