You Better Belize It!

So I'm leaving for yet another adventure in about 19 hrs. 11 min. and 45 sec. to...Belize! Not that I'm counting or anything. Hopefully I won't have work on my mind while I'm chillin on the beach in a hammock with a beer (ok many beers) reading a book or swimming with the fishies in clear blue waters. Getting out of work Friday afternoon alive and emotionally stable was difficult. I think I may have a small scar from it all.

Once again for those of you who do not know your geography, Belize is in Central America directly south of the Yucatán Peninsula. And I've heard it has some of the worlds 2nd best Barrier Reefs. I don't scuba dive or anything but heck, I'll sure try some snorkeling. My sister and I are staying on Ambergris Caye. It's one of the most visited island in Northern Belize because of it's snorkeling destinations. I would have loved to run around the country to see what there is and hop over to Guatemala and check out Tikal once again but to do that the cost started racking up and we were trying to keep this on the cheap side.

So after a difficult week at work and me throwing my back out again Thursday, I think I have hyped myself back up for the trip even though I'm a little leery of how my back will act. On the plus side, I will have a "never been out of the country" newbie sister on my hands and it's always interesting to see their reactions to things. That and I will laugh when she gets hooked to international travel like I am. So with that, I'm off to start packing before my boss tries to hook me up with his single, soccer playing, Belizean friend who is probably 3 times my age.
