I am nearing the end of my sixth month in Belize -- my longest stretch in a single Caribbean or Central American country at one time since 2008, without hopping anywhere else in between. My last record was Jamaica, for five continuous months in 2009.
The thought of leaving Belize soon is a really sad one. And as I look back, I still pinch myself that I was here writing my first guidebook edition for Moon. The immigration officer I visit every month for my extension stamp, teased that I might as well stay for the year at this point, marry a Belizean or apply to become a resident (ha!). It really is easy to want to stay here. Yet, at the same time, my wanderlust is still alive and kicking, as I continue to dream of covering other destinations.
What to do?
