We had such delicious fun it wasn’t right not to include the kids. Picture a 2 & 4 year old making chocolate, “one for the mold, one for me, one for the mold, two for me, one for the mold…” You get the idea.

We never thought that when we left Australia 5th May 2012 we would still be on the road. And that we would be sharing our journey with 10,000+ other people. If you know anything about me (Erin - the mum) I love parties and there was no way I was letting this day go by without a party. So to celebrate our 365 days of non-stop travel we have something very special planned.
Quite rightfully this is the number 2 thing to do in Antigua on TripAdvisor. Two hours went way too fast and I was literally giddy with glee the whole time. I washed my hands consistently (as I’m a finger licker)... Before I knew it we were done and the final results were boxed beautifully and presented to us.
When we first got to this little island I was disheartened, we had tried a few places with not much success. The food was downright crappy. The supermarkets were expensive, the fruit and veg not fresh and it seemed there was nowhere to eat. Then...
What a journey. And what a change from our hellish ride from Belize to Guatemala. The overnight bus went fast and was a very cheap alternative to getting into Antigua.
Tikal is huge! Our tour was about 5 hours long and over 6km. That’s a lot of walking with a 2 & 4 year old who got up at 4am. The morning started with the quickest (and rare) glimpse of a Jaguar on its way home from a late night party obviously. We also saw the strangest little Coatamundis & the very noisy Howler Monkeys...
The plan was simple. A 1.5 hour speedboat ride from San Pedro to Belize City at 10am. This would get us to Belize City about 11:30am/12pm with enough time to eat lunch and catch the 1pm bus to Flores, Guatemala. What could go wrong?
Have you ever heard of a chicken drop? Possibly not. I know the RSPCA would be all over it if we had such a thing in Australia. But every Thursday night in San Pedro, Belize the chicken drop draws a crowd.
I am petrified of sharks. I come from the land down under where the Great Whites plunder (rap not intended). I rarely swim in the sea and if I do it’s more like a wade where a quick exit is available. And now here I sit. On the edge of a boat gazing at a crystal clear ocean filled with sharks. I breathe deeply, throw caution to the wind and plunge into the cool depths of the Caribbean awaiting my destiny. Join us for our day with SEAduced on their Catamaran to Caye Caulker.
Ever met someone on holiday that convinces you to do a tour? You actually know nothing about the tour, but your husband wants to go because it’s Mayan ruins and that has to end well, right? Next time do your research or you too could be on a 6-hour journey to see ruins.
