Publication News and Updates: Belize’s September Celebrations on Travel and Escape Channel

I have some super duper news to share with everyone tomorrow!! Yes I’ll finally be spilling *those* beans – most of you on my Facebook Page know that I’ve been hinting and anxious to announce some fantastic news but I couldn’t until contracts were signed… you know, the ink had to dry and reach both ends. And now I can write the blog post about it, so tomorrow it is (don’t kill me).


In the meantime, I’m happy to share my feature on Belize’s September Celebrations, published today on Canada’s Travel and Escape Channel.

I’m especially tickled because many aren’t aware of Belize’s September Celebrations – but they should be!  It’s an amazing THREE whole weeks of parties, festivities, cultural events all across the country, leading up to Independence Day on September 21.

Yesterday two friends emailed me from Belize, both saying “Lily! It was this time last year you were in Belize!! Can you believe?”

Indeed. Today is Belize City Carnival – the big kick off –  and a year to the date, there I was, shooting and jumping with everyone and going to literally every single major event all month. This culture-holic (and the photographer in me) was in heaven.

I hope you enjoy the piece and share it with friends.  Please do feel free to comment directly on T+E’s site as well (below the article or the gallery). And don’t miss my additional gallery published here.



Stayed tuned for my upcoming publications in the next weeks on CNNGo, BBC Travel, American Airlines’ American Way and Ms. Magazine.
