Happy Independence Day to Belize!

It’s hard to believe that this time last year, there I was, celebrating and prancing around the streets with Belizeans, camera in one hand and flag in another.

I spent the day in Belmopan first, the capital, and then moved on to Orange Walk for the annual Independence Day Carnival. Good times!

And here I am packing and planning for Belize all over again. This beautiful land just won’t let go of me, ha.  In fact, today I picked up my brand new passport–and the issue date is September 21. Coincidence? Methinks not!

Happy Independence Day to all Belizeans, have some One Barrel and Belikins for me!
