Getting Stamped in Belize

On this trip I HAD to get my passport stamped. I have never felt like an “official” traveler because my passport remained blank.

So I shamelessly, tracked down where to get my passport stamped in each port. (there is so much more than traveling that stamps, but I just HAD to do it!)


I suceeded in Honduras & Belize, but Mexico I didn’t which is ironic as I have visited Mexico multiple times but never been stamped.

Anyhow, I asked everyone where to go get stamped in Belize… it took me forever to find it.

Finally I found it. I loved it, it was so small, and the lady that stamped my passport was so sweet. Which just confirmed that Belize may have the best people in the world!



and look I get to strike something else of my bucket list…


Book Review Sunday


The more I read this series the more I love it.

I am NOT a huge fan of erotica fiction. I knew when I started the series that this would happen, but I kept reading and said I would stop reading.

Under normal circumstances this one scene would have made me stop, however it did not and I have already started burnt offerings.

I just can’t get enough of Anita Blake & Jean Claude. I love this series and I have no clue why I am just now reading the series.

This story did not have a lot of police drama, but then again someone is after Anita, and has hired a hit man.

This might be the only plot line that I kinda had an issue with. I figured it out the instant we found out an assassin was after her yet Anita did not. I found that unlikely.

But then again she was dealing with two beyond sexy boyfriends, so maybe she was distracted.

Like I said I can’t get enough of this series, and will continue to push through and read the series.

This book gets 5 stars for sure!

Belize Instantly Stole My Heart

Belize was the second port of call we visited on the cruise.  After an amazing day zip lining in Honduras, I knew Belize was going to have big shoes to fill.  I expected to like Belize.

What I did NOT expect was to fall in love with Belize the minute I stepped off the boat.


It was instantaneous, the moment I stepped off the boat onto another, it was as if a jolt of electricity went through me, and I felt like I was home.

I am not well traveled and I suspect I will have many other places in my life I get this feeling.  I have had one other experience like this in my 31 years, that experience being the moment I stepped off the bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC 8 years ago.

So when I had this feeling I knew I would love every moment of Belize.

It was stormy, it was cloudy, there was not a single ounce of sunshine… but I knew Belize would be amazing.


It was love at first sight, and I only had 10 hours to make the best of it.

We went snorkeling in the Belize Barrier Reef.  Sadly I didn’t take very many pictures of this adventure because I do not have a waterproof camera, but the Belize Barrier Reef was amazing.  It was magical.

The people of Belize were the most breathtakingly beautiful people I have ever met.  I have never met so many genuine passionate kind people at one time…

What can I say? I have been completely enchanted by Belize, and you better Belize I will be back 😉
