Aug 29, 2006 - Belize.....
Saa er jeg sq kommet til Belize... TIl Belize City en by der staar for 90% af al den kriminalitet der bliver begaaet i Belize saa skifter kun transportmiddel fra bus til baad... :-) Ved graensen fra Guatemala til Belize prover politiet altid at opkraeve penge fra turisterne naar de rejser ud men de penge ryger direkte i den enkelte politimans lomme saa jeg betalte ikke fandt dog ud af at alle andre i bussen havde betalt uden at brokke sig.... Lidt sjovt... hehe Men fuck hvor er det nice at kommet til et engelsk talende land... ogsaa selvom...Jump to full entry
Aug 27, 2006 - Caye Caulker
Hoooraaaaaayyyyy, hier sind wir also, Betina und ich, auf unserer kleinen Insel angekommen! Die zwei Keywords, um die sich auf diesem Mini-Eiland alles dreht: Balance and Respect! Sehr geil, man wird hier von jedem einzelnen Insulaner herzlich willkommen geheissen und Betina wurde eben auf der Starsse hoeflich gebeten, doch etwas langsamer zu gehen, schliesslich ist hier alles etwas relaxter. Hach, genau mein Ding =;-) Caye Caulker ist eine absolute Backpacker-Insel, hier gibt's keine Hotels oder grossen Tourismus. Alles ist einfach, alles...Jump to full entry
Jun 20, 2006 - Tropical Storm Island - Caye Caulker, Belize
We eventually made our way south to belize all the way to the capital belize city. On our way into town late at nite on a bus, Irwin kept noticing Chinese buffets left right and center. We didn't know what was going on. We eventually found a hostel and went for food to ... guess what a Chinese restaurant. Belize is littered with Chinese people. We couldn't believe. We left for Caye Caulker the next day cause Belize city was a piece of shit. To get from belize city to caye caulker you took a water taxi from 45 minutes. It was a beautiful...Jump to full entry
Apr 15, 2006 - GAP-tour starts
We started the GAP-tour in Cancun, and then we went on to Playa del Carmen for 2 days again. Since we've allready seen what we wanted in this area we just spent the time relaxing, and getting to know the other people in the group. We should have been 12, but 2 had to go home to sort out some family buisness, and are meeting us on the half-way. Another couple leaves after 2 weeks, so we will never be more than 10 + Ben, our tour leader. Now we've been in Belize for 3 days, and we have done a lot of things allready. 1st day we went snorkeling...Jump to full entry
Apr 8, 2006 - Caye Caulker
Caye Caulker, Belize which has the second largest barrier reef in the world, was in itself amazing. As we approached the island we were floored. After leaving what we thought was the most beautiful place we couldn't believe that it could get any better. The highlight of this week was our snorkel adventure. We ventured out to the barrier reef and had 3 seperate jumps. The first was nice, similar to what we had been seeing, the second got better as we swam around a four foot moray eel, and the third, ahhhhh. On the third jump we were...Jump to full entry
Apr 3, 2006 - Caye Caulker, Belize
When we began planning this trip Belize was one of the countries we were so excited about. Strangely enough, it was also the country that we were most warned about! We weren't exposed to much of the mainland at all so our experience of Belize is probably a bit skewed. We made our way directly to the island of Caye Caulker from the bus and water taxi terminal in Belize city. After we had only a few minutes on the island we both fell in love with it. It was a laid back and effortlessly beautiful spot. During our whole time there we only saw...Jump to full entry
Mar 31, 2006 - Belize: Sailing the Cayes
Highlights: THE WATER!!, Snorkeling at Hol Chan Reserve, Ray and Shark Alley, and Coral Gardens, The Punta contest!, $1 US= 2 Belizean dollars Hotel: Tina's Backpackers Hostel. Beautiful setting right on the beach with hammocks on floating dock to relax on. After a 5 hour bus ride, crossing the border from Guatemala, and a FAST 45 minute boat ride from Belize City to Caye Caulker, I arrived. The ride was very pretty and smooth-all roads paved. The country side changed from hills to flat farm land and cattle ranches. The boat ride sped...Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2006 - Time to hit the beach
Warning: Today's entry involves beaches, sun, and general relaxation. Please don't read any further if this disturbs you! We left Guatemala on Saturday and traveled for much of the day to reach Caye Caulker, one of the barrier islands just off the coast of Belize. There is not much to do here except lay on the beach, snorkel, swim, eat, nap, eat some more, and have a drink or two. I hope we can survive this grueling schedule. We are hoping to take a 3 day/2 night sailboat cruise starting tomorrow to the southern Belize town of Placencia....Jump to full entry
Mar 22, 2006 - Caye Caulker - 'Takin Et Rool Ezy Man'
Stop three in beautiful Belize, Caye Caulker in the Northern Cayes; a sand and palm covered atoll on the worlds second largest reef. Devoid of resort style hotels, Caye Caulker has a shack style, laid back charm about it. The streets, Front, Middle and Back, are paved with sand and a couple of laps is all it takes before you have seen most faces on the island. We wiled away four days, much of it in the aquamarine sea wallowing and snorkeling. The highlight, a cool sailboat snorkeling trip to a marine reserve with a stop at Shark & Ray...Jump to full entry
Jan 9, 2006 - Belize City, and Belize the country.
The population of the country of Belize (approximately 300,000 citizens), is very small compared to the size of the country itself (land area is lightly smaller than the state of Massachusetts). While the official language of Belize is English, many of it inhabitants speak Creol. Creol is said to be a form of broken English, however, the locals speak it very rapidly, and, to us, it bears little resemblance to the English we know. In Belize's tiny economy the tourism industry is the number one foreign exchange earner followed by seafood...Jump to full entry
Oct 24, 2005 - Belize City - No way out
Oh no! Stuck in Belize City for the night. And we thought we'd planned our escape so well! Even hurricanes give this place a wide berth. Called the main city but its smaller than Dubbo, and not nearly as cosmopolitan. Scary people everywhere. Went to bed early due to a lack of other options.Jump to full entry
