“It is getting dark and starting to rain! All the hotels will be full by now. You guys shouldn’t be on the street at night!” warned an old lady who had been watching us from above for the past 10 minutes, as we stood in a circle, looking around at each other asking the same … Continue reading Belizean Hospitality
People are always shocked when I tell them I travel the world alone. They get the wrong impression. But let me tell you it is rare for me to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner alone and talk to no one all day. That's not traveling.
