...better late than never

Looking Back

2018: What an exciting and fun packed year. It started out so refreshing as I removed some dead weight and things that were holding me back. I tried out so many new things as I start to look into what hobbies to get addicted to next: archery, mountain biking, long distance backpack camping ... I also kept up with the things that I already do a lot of: ultra races, day hikes, global trips, music, and going to lots of random events and festivals.

Plus there was adding new family members, having a fun work environment, catching up with friends, volleyball, puppy antics and so much random things. Check out the summary below and follow the links on some of them to more specifics.

2018 Belize and Panama

a quick week trip in February 2018

80 °F
View Belize + Panama 2018 on MurkTravels's travel map.

Belize

This is probably the easiest country in Central America to travel to, with English as an official language and the US dollar not only accepted but also pegged directly with the Belize dollar. It also presents a wide range of opportunities all within several direct flights hubs within the US. One can check out history and ancient civilizations with Mayan sites, relax on the islands, or head out to sea for water activities.

Recommend:

  • Scuba diving or snorkeling
  • Checking out one of the islands (Ambergis Caye or Caye Caulker)
  • head inland for a Mayan tour ... TBD for me

Panama

I don't have much to report on Panama since I had a layover there. It was 24 hours but a chunk of that was spent at the hotel and the airport of course. Other than that I saw a quick overview of Panama City, and the sight of the Atlantic and Pacific ocean as we were flying in. It was enough to know that I want to head back and spend some more time in the country
