After a week in the jungle of Rio Dulce, I am off in just a couple of hours for a 6 day sailing trip to Belize. Belize is just above Guatemala and apparently at one time was all one country.
No computer, no internet and heavens knows what else I am in for. It should be interesting and I am very much looking forward to the trip. You can check out more at www.sailing-diving-guatemala.com
The weather this week has been overcast and cool – a dramatic change from the usual “steambath” that I had heard about Rio Dulce. Like everywhere in the world, the climate is changing. I am hoping and praying for blue skies in Belize.
This trip was a great lesson in checking out what I wanted to do before making judgments about whether or not it was in the budget. Probably you have said more times than not, “I can´t afford to do that!” I bet you´ve said that before you even knew what anything was going to cost! You had just decided in your mind you couldn´t afford it.
It´s why I have learned to check things out because more often than not, I´m surprised by the price….to the good! For example, 6 nights on this sailboat, all food included is $475 Canadian. That´s not astronomical by anybody´s standards that is reading this blog. Most people are shocked at how reasonable it is. Apparently the food is excellent – fruit, vegetables and mostly seafood – my kind of diet. I guess we´ll find out. My only other cost is $10 to leave Guatemala and $40 for the park fees in Belize. So a very affordable week of holiday.
I´ll let you know when I get back. I will be in Antigua for a few days before I leave Guatemala. There´s a big religious celebration happening that weekend in Antigua that I´ve heard is spectacular. Will be interesting to say the least.
Have a fabulous week – I know I will!
