Moon Belize 2017 Updates: Sharing New Highlights

Revisions, additions, deletions: the writing portion of Moon Belize 2017 is in full swing!

After my MacPro died in November during a massive rainstorm on a boat transfer, I was left computerless on the road in Belize for 4 weeks. Thankfully, I had backed up all my work up until that point on external drives, and my iPhone saved the day–allowing me to take notes, snap photos and record audio.

New “chapter highlights,” fresh photos are coming to each chapter.

In Punta Gorda, a favorite was spending the day with EcoTourism Belize in Indian Creek Village–cooking Mayan caldo and tortillas, hiking an organic farm, watching dance performances, and… witnessing plenty of giggles from the women’s group while they posed for my camera. To top it off, 100% of Ecotourism Belize’s profits will go towards sustainable development in the south.

The New Moon Dominican Republic Guidebook is Available

Moon Dominican RepublicIt has been many weeks, folks – and you can blame it on the death of my MacPro (insert sad face)! It happened during a boat transfer, in a nutshell, while in Belize traveling countrywide for  Moon Belize 2017 updates. It was impossible to interrupt my update schedule to return to the USA for a new machine, so I ploughed on computerless for three weeks. I had my iPhone, thank goodness, and my camera. But those notes will now have to be rewritten and it’s going to be a very long December month ahead, as I face TWO book deadlines by mid January and early February. Fun times!

In exciting news, however, I am super pleased to share that my first edition of Moon Dominican Republic is finally released and available for purchase! It’s in stock on Amazon and in USA bookstores. This is actually a first edition: written from scratch by me, and also filled with my best Dominican Republic photography.

I received this first feedback in my inbox this week:

“Great job on your book on the Dominican Republic. Got my copy last week. I have been to the Dominican Republic 7 times in the past 5 years and there are so many things I have not seen that you brought to life. You have amazing detail in your guide and so many vibrant pictures. Outstanding job.” – Z. G.

I will be heading stateside soon to gather my author copies and bring them back to the Dominican Republic next month. Want an autographed copy? Inbox me.

In the meantime, stay happy and don’t let the US elections get you down. Book that trip to the Caribbean, and come explore with me!
