    Placencia

    June 26, 2015 in Belize ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Back on the chicken buses today where we discover what the Belizian etiquette is with regards to queing- 1. Seniors go first. 2. A complete free for all where everyone pushes you, mothers and children out of the way. The bus is packed and we somehow end up at the back of the queue, the bus attendant doesnt let us on, "Bus full, wait for the next one (in an hour!)" except as soon as we get off 3 more people hop on! Oi! Eventually he feels sorry for us because we have a connecting bus to catch, so crams us on and insists we sit down.. we squish in 3 to each bench seat. 2 minutes down the road apparently standing is ok again and they stop to let more people on the bus!

    Anyhoo, we make it to Placencia eventually and its very nice.. its set right on the beach and has a much more local feel than Caye Caulker. Trav has found us an amazing airbnb place and we have the whole house to ourselves! Homemade shrimp linguine for dinner :-)

    Sunny day tomorrow for our snorkeling trip please!

    The run for the boarder!

    May 16, 2018 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We got off he island, but not out the country. The ferry leaves on Friday morning, so we’ve got to chill here for a couple of nights. It’s a pretty weird place with loads of seppos and resort type stuff. Odd. Got local busses all the way down, was good to see some country and got chatting to some locals. Very interesting!Read more

    Chillen in Placencia x 2

    September 23, 2019 in Belize ⋅ 🌙 29 °C

    Einfach mal nichts machen und das 2 Tage: frühstücken, wieder hinlegen und lesen, mit dem Fahrrad Placencia erkundet, baden im karibischen Meer, kurz einkaufen, baden und sonnen am heimischen Pool.
    Zum Abendessen ging es in die Barefoot - Bar. Hier ist heute Sangria und Salsa Nacht 💃 🌴 ☀️

    Der zweite Tag sah ähnlich aus, nur das wir mich unsere Wäsche zur Reinigung brachten, den Touri-Teil von Placencia per Fuß erkundeten und dabei eine kleine Eisbar entdeckten.
    Heute Abend haben wir dann - mal ganz verrückt - selbst Abend essen zubereitet.

    A lazy day

    January 25, 2019 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    A bit cloudy and a bit windy makes for book reading. Attempt a few snorkel trios but waves are a bit much. Do see rays and sharks. Go back by snorkel entry point and see lobster and cool black and yellow fish. Last sunset and fish fillets curry veg and brown rice for dinner.Read more
