Today is a bittersweet day. I’m sad that it is my last day in Belize, but I’m excited that many new adventures lie ahead.
During my three months in Belize, I visited the whole country and experienced the beauty of its pristine nature, the history, and culture of the Maya, Garifuna, and Kriol, dove the second biggest barrier reef in the world, and fell in love with Caye Caulker.
Not only did I enjoy Belize as a country, but I also made many new friends, some of them very special to my heart. Also, I want to give my greatest thanks to Matador Network and Belize Tourism Board for trusting me with this incredible project and experience.
Now, even though I’m leaving Belize today, I’m still not quite done with all I want to share with you about this little country often referred to as “nature’s best-kept secret”.
Also, I want to congratulate Kristin Fuhrmann-Simmons of Four Tickets Please as she now takes the role of the new Road Warrior. And you know what? Her stories will be yummy! She’s a foodie! So, I encourage you to follow her journey through Belize as she tastes all the delicious food that I enjoyed (and made me gain 14 pounds!) and much more.
My Round the World will now take me to the Middle East! I’ll be starting in Israel and will make my way around the region, including Jordan, United Arab Emirates, and Egypt, so far… I will keep you posted on Facebook and Twitter as I hop between places.
I also want to announce that I will be collaborating with HostelBookers. I’m excited about this collaboration as I will have the opportunity to experience many cool and interesting hostels during the next couple months, and you will get to see how is the backpacking experience in each of them.
I’ve used HostelBookers many times before, so I know that their booking process is really simple and straightforward and they have a good quality listing of not only hostels, but also apartments, bed & breakfasts, guesthouses, hotels, and even campsites. In addition, I like the fact that they have no booking fee (why waste part of our limited budget on that?!) and if you find the same accommodation at another site for a cheaper rate, they’ll refund double the difference.
Let the two-day (4 flights) journey from Belize to Israel start now!
