Every two weeks I’ll be publishing little excerpts from my travel diary to show a little bit more of what I live every day. These are taken from November 1 through 15.
New month, new country. Welcome to Feliz Belize!
Too much free rum punch. CAN’T. MOVE.
Today I met the first mexican backpacker in more than a month. No wonder why everyone is surprised when I tell them I’m mexican too.
I like being the traveler with no rush for the first time in my life.
Despite the expensive price for the tour, I am glad I went snorkeling today. Experiences are the best investment.
Went through Belmopan—Belize’s official capital—and I gotta tell you, there is absolutely nothing there.
Swam upstream an underground river, then walked for a couple of hours before reaching an enormous chambers with mayan artefacts and human remains. You rock, ATM caves!
It doesn’t matter where you are, breakfasts at markets are always the best.
Waking up at 2am to start a trek has never felt so good. Sunrise at Tikal is totally worth it.
Drinking with strangers at hostels is always… interesting.
My debit card got blocked today and I just had 2Q in my wallet. Didn’t eat the whole day and I was about to kill somebody!
Fact: Long distance relationships are hard, but worth it sometimes.
Today I got to talk with several archaeologists working in the ruins of El Tintal and I’m ever more convinced of going back to college, just to study Archaeology.
Sergio Camalich, Graphic Archaeologist—it sounds nice!
Everything is shits and giggles until you realize that every couple of shiny spots you see at night, while walking in the jungle, are spider eyes looking at you, waiting for the right moment to eat you.
Risks of peeing in the guatemalan jungle: Getting your dick bitten by a giant mosquito.
