Hello everyone and happy spring! 🌷🌻
After spending three months overlanding across Africa, I was sure glad to fly home two weeks ago, to spend some much-needed time with my family back in the States.
My family lives in the burbs, but we have the benefit of being only a short drive away from both the beautiful countryside and the urban city, with lots of different activities to be found.
Truthfully though, I didn’t feel much like doing activities, and I spent most of my time watching television on the couch with this little ball of fur, my parent’s dog, Ella. ❤
I mean, camping in Africa for three months had really taken a toll on my body, so I left feeling pretty rough, grungy, and tired. Hah! 😛Anyway, after two weeks of R&R, I’m finally feeling refreshed and ready for the next big adventure! 🙂
Travel Itinerary: Volunteering with Wildlife in Belize
My next adventure will be in Central America, volunteering in northern Belize with the wildlife conservation group, Wildtracks.
Wildtracks is a non-profit organization, which focuses on conservation, education, and research, by running successful programs in both primate and manatee rehabilitation.
I’m eager to share lots of information with all of you about manatees, as well as, what it’s like to volunteer with this organization. From what I’ve read so far, Wildtracks has greatly improved the local marine conservation efforts, and you might say, they’ve already gained my seal of approval. 😉Wait? Was that a cheesy marine animal pun? 😛
Anyway, all jokes aside, volunteering in Belize will also give me the opportunity to connect more with the local people, and afterwards, I plan to visit the islands of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, where there is lots of spectacular diving to be found. 😀
I’m still finalizing the details of my trip using this helpful travel book, but expect a full report of my experience in the near future. Until then! 🙂
