First I just want to say sorry for taking so long for writing another post… I took so long because, well I just had way to much FUN during my vacation… I have a lot of things to talk about… So let’s get started!
First about how you travel from Belize to Belgium!
We always go there because that is where I was born and we always go there to see the family. Belgium is a beautiful country. Where we stay, there are a lot of oak woods, there is a great amusement park, movie theatre, restaurants and so much more.
Here in Belize, I live on an island called Ambergris Caye… The island sits at the second largest reef in the world!
I’m sure that you can imagine that the traveling from Belize to Belgium was very very long.
To get from our Island to the mainland we always fly with Tropic Air. Tropic Air is one of the biggest airlines in Belize, and they fly you around with a Cesna over the crystal blue water and while flying you also see some other islands Belize has. This time we flew to Corozal, which is located North of Belize very close to Mexico.
Once I landed in Corozal, I took a ride with Mr. George Moralez to the border of Mexico, then we hopped on a bus in Chetumal (which takes about 4 hours) that took us to Playa del Carmen…On the bus it was BORING!
When we are in Playa del Carmen we always go shopping. We like to buy some souvenirs… But this time it was raining a lot! So we did a little of shopping, and for dinner we went to the closest restaurant. I’m happy we went there as it was a great pizza place… The food was awesome! After dinner we got to eat ice-cream… While we were enjoying our ice-cream, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Lots of people (hundreds) were running on 5th Avenue with lights on… You know those sticks that you crack and it glows? We are not sure why they were doing this, but it was so much fun to watch!
Pssst… When you are looking for a nice hotel to stay at in Playa, you have to stay at Acanto Boutique Hotel. They are located in the centre of all the fun happenings and the rooms and staff are GREAT!
The next day we hopped (again) on a taxi to get to the Mexican Airport, Cancun… Once we were there we checked-in, had lunch and waited for our flight… The plane was ok we didn’t do much, except of watching movies, play games and sleep. Oh yeah I did meet the captain and I told them about my blog. Normally nobody is allowed to go in the cockpit, but a while ago I met an “engineer” of the Dreamliner and he gave us an original pin of the Dreamliner which is made out of the same material the plane is made of… Because the pin is something very special, and not many people have one, I was allowed to go in the captain’s cockpit to show my pin to him.
Once we were landed in Brussels Airport, we had to drive an hour to get to my house… It was the longest hour of my life, I just wanted to rest… After cuddling with my dogs, I fell asleep on the floor and ended my night in the bed. I could not believe that I had slept 16 hours non stop!
