We visited Tikal in Guatemala today. I thought I would share some photos of the animals we saw in the park. Let’s just say the monkeys must have loved the rain. There were so many of them showing their faces, and close by, that even the guides were taking picutes. In the past I’ve also […]
View from the Airplane between Houston and Belize. I just love the colors and I think it tells a story.
Day one started out excellent. After packed flights from Arizona (Mom) and Washington (Me), there was hardly anyone on our flight between Houston and Belize. Two hours of flight time with an entire row for each of us. Airline travel doesn’t get any better than a row to lie down in after travelling all night. […]
We’ll only be gone for 11 days total (including travel time), but still my career as a project manager has me planning every single thing…including our packing list. I travel alone quite a bit, but one of the things I like most about travelling with someone else is that you don’t have to bring everything. […]
Wow!!!…what can I say about Tulum. It’s one of the most unique Mayan sites I’ve visited so far (of six). It’s on the Eastern coast of Mexico. As usual I don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty details of the site itself since you can look it up. I do want to give you the […]
When you find a pair of sandals (Tevas) that you absolutely love it’s impossible to give them up even when they are completely wore out. This particular pair of Tevas got me through my solo trip to Belize in 2010, then through a few weeks in Arizona. I also wore them nearly every day last […]
Ok…project manager time. While I don’t necessarily believe in planning every detail of a trip, this time around I have a lot of it planned out already because we are only in Belize for a short period and I want to make sure my Mom gets as much out of it as she can. I […]
I just love Mayan ruins and I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to see one of the most famous…Chichen Itza. I won’t write too much about the ruins, since you can look up the details on any number of websites. I recommend Wikipedia. Here are my impressions… Get there early. If you don’t, […]

This week was about experimenting with manual mode and setting up a shoot. Most are just so-so, but I’m happy with them. One or two will become part of a Christmas project I’m working on.
