Belize: Are we ruining it?

Belize: Are we ruining it?

Belize has been our briefest journey yet of all of our stops. We were in country for just a few weeks, but our experience there has left a lasting impact. I have been thinking about this for weeks, and finally decided to put thoughts to “paper”.  This is...
Belize

Belize

< ?xml version="1.0"?> We leave Guatemala and enter Belize a country which is completely different from the rest of Central America. The language in the former British Crown Colony is English and instead of kilometers or meters they have miles, yards and inches. Also...

60 miles off-road on the Madass

So its been a while since we have shared a motorcycle story, so here goes one from Belize. We are a little behind on the blog, so bare with us :) We were camped for a few days in the very fun San Ignacio, Belize. It’s the jumping off point for a ton of touristy...

Bringing a dog to Belize

Bringing a dog to Belize

Traveling with Syncro has been one of our highlights of this experience.  He is a part of the team and we spoil him like a little child.  We go through hoops to make sure he is well taken care of.  Whether that is making a sacrifice on where we stay so he can be with...

México: con los colores del Caribe

México: con los colores del Caribe

Belice hola y chau Todavía encantados con todo lo que nos pasó y conocimos en Guatemala, cruzamos la frontera con Belice, un país incógnita para nosotros que así se mantuvo ya que lo atravesamos en el día. Lo que pudimos ver en esas horas de carretera dentro del país...
Machu Picchu and the humanity of it all.

Machu Picchu and the humanity of it all.

This is Mike…Quechua is the native language of the Inca and is still widely spoken in this region today. Machu Picchu in Quechua means “House of too many tourists trampling over each other for a photo op.” Just kidding, Machu Picchu actually means...
A journey into the underworld

A journey into the underworld

Like all good journeys into the depths of the underworld, this one started with a stay at a nice campground. San Ignacio did not disappoint. Sure, the town itself wasn’t anything spectacular. A typical tourist hub—full of restaurants, tour agencies and touts....
On the road to ruin (s)

On the road to ruin (s)

After much effort we managed to drag ourselves away from the peaceful beaches of Sarteneja. It was time to see what else Belize had to offer apart from amazing beaches, gorgeous seaside towns, tropical islands, spectacular snorkelling, friendly people and fantastic...
Shall we go to Belize?

Shall we go to Belize?

Belize it or not, we managed to avoid a pun in the title of our blog post about Belize. Of course, you’d Belize us now if we told you it was a legal requirement for all blog posts about Belize to contain at least three puns. Un-Beliezably we have already met that...
Our cruise in the Galapagos

Our cruise in the Galapagos

This is Elise.  We weren’t sure if we wanted to do a cruise or not when we went to the Galapagos.  I sometimes get seasick and I know some people say a land based trip is a good way to go as well.  When we got to Puerto Ayora and looked at the...
Barreira de Corais de Belize

This place is unbelizable

This place is unbelizable

After donating just a little more blood to the local skeeters in Sarteneja, the next stop in Belize was Hopkins, a small coastal town, with a strong Garifuna culture still present. We felt like we had been transported to an island somewhere between the Caribbean and...
Don’t stop Belizin’

Don’t stop Belizin’

17*31.53’N 87*53.44’W Our alarm failed us, or maybe we forgot how to use those darn things, but we jolted awake at 7:15, 15 minutes after we planned to leave for the border! We hustled and booked it out of camp in Bacalar, Mexico toward Belize. We had done...
Guatemala

Guatemala

Crossing the border from Belize to Guatemala is a complicated undertaking. But I think they all are. There are papers to sign, copies to be produced, fees to be paid and you have to wait and wait. We finally got our paperwork and window sticker and drove off, just to...
