UnBELIZEable

UnBELIZEable… Haha, funny title, look at me.  I only wish I could have made that up.  However, that phrase is printed on every t-shirt, bumper sticker, key chain, coffee mug and trinket in Belize.  Its good for gift shop business when your country’s name can be used as wordplay.

Anyway, it is about 16°F here in the middle of Missouri so I thought I would finally post some photos from my trip to Belize last month.  We went to Ambergris Caye off the coast of Belize City and pretty much did nothing for a week– which was exactly the point.  Belize actually has the second biggest barrier reef next to The Great Barrier Reef in Australia.  That means great diving and snorkeling!

Hopefully these will warm you up… Or just make you hate winter even more…
