We pick up the story from the border of Guatemala and Belize. It only took just over 2 hours to get here from Flores, the main jumping off point for visiting the Mayan ruins of Tikal, and a sweet little island town in its' own right. Our bus driver has just finished his breakfast and … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 10
Yesterday at Semuc Champey was all time. A lot of cuts and bruises but made it out all in one piece. Some fellow travellers will be getting out there today for some fun in the sun. I actually walked past them as they were booking their trip while an insanely drunk local was rolling around … Continue reading Guatemala Diaries – Day 4
The bad news and the good news came all at once today. After a few beers on the hill in Flores, I was not in the mood for an early start. The previous evening I'd been informed that my bus was leaving at 5:30 am instead of 8 am. Through a conversation in broken Spanish … Continue reading Guatemala Diaries – Day 2
After resisting getting up at 6 am and treating myself to a sleep in until 8 am, I'll take the advice of some of the Koko King happy hour companions and sign up for a full day snorkel trip with Raggamuffin tours. Weather has been touch and go so far, and this morning was no … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 5
Another restful night greeted with ninja like hostel companions. To say the least, I was not hopeful at best with the expected noise level of sharing a hostel dorm with 13 Colombians. To my delight, they were the most courteous roommates I think I've had. So far the weather on Caye Caulker has been rainy, … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 4
The difference 11 hours sleep can make. I was planning on catching the 8 am ferry to Caye Caulker but my current landlord was sleeping so it was to be the 9 am ferry instead. The amount of barbed wire and gated businesses gave the impression people don't always like paying for goods and belongings … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 3
So after a night of being rocked to sleep from a flimsy bunk bed with an active downstairs occupant, it's time for an early start and bus back to IAH. So far my bus skills have needed some work, and we're only one day in. The comedy continues. After stuffing the rest of last night's … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 2
So I'd booked this trip some time ago, around the start of the year, which has to be one of the longest pre-booked trips I've done in a while. Well, the time has finally arrived and it's time to check in and take off my shoes for security. The first leg of the journey begins … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 1
Travel means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Have you ever heard someone say they're travelling to put off being an adult? To put off real life? To put the responsibilities of growing up on hold? I have. More than once. And this way of thinking about travel is definitely … Continue reading Travel and “Real Life”: Does one put off the other? Walking the fine line.
I'll be honest, the name for this website does not inspire me with confidence. It could only be worse if there were a couple of 'z's' in the title. Luckily for me (and you) this site has to more to it than just a cheesy title. Like my other favourite travel website, Adioso, this website has numerous filters and preferences that you can use to tailor your search for the perfect flight with the best value for money.
