I have two weeks before leaving for a week in Costa Rica and then 10 days after I get back from Costa Rica to prepare for my move to Belize. I’ve already sifted through the few possessions I still have in the States so I don’t really need to do that. Basically I will just be storing a few containers and packing my bags. I have one and a half blank pages in my passport left which will be just enough to get to Costa Rica, through Mexico and in to Belize. Then I’ll have to make a trip to the embassy in Belmopan to get some more pages put in.
My boyfriend is flying to Portland for a week prior to my departure to Belize to help me pack and will provide some extra luggage space. Then we will both fly to Cancun, Mexico. In my experience this has proven to be the cheapest route in or out of Belize to take. So we will fly to Cancun and this time I am excited about a short visit to a spiral island made out of plastic bottles at Isla Mujeres. Mr. “Rishi” Sowa has been working on this project for years now. I found the information one day perusing BoingBoing.net and forwarded it onto my bf who since visited Rishi for a few days and was extremely impressed. You can read the BoingBoing.com post here. So we will spend a couple nights with him which I am very curious about. Then it will be on to Belize.
I will post about Costa Rica and about Rishi’s spiral Island as those trips come and will keep the blog up to date about my preparations for moving to Belize. Thanks everyone for reading and I hope some of the information here will be helpful for you! As always, please leave a comment or send me an email if you have specific questions or topic suggestions.
