    1. I need to do a bit of housekeeping on my home page!! Alas, we had to cancel at last minute – we were in Malaga for a weekend 2 weeks before the Morocco trip and Tom was admitted to hospital for 10 days with an infection – so that was that. Might try and go in March/April … hadn’t planned on Western Sahara – we only had a week but might have more time in the spring and plan it a bit better. Have you been there?

      1. that’s too bad. hope Tom’s ok now. i haven’t been there. but it’s one of a few countries in my ‘unfinshed business’ list. i would suggest you check out the security situation there before going though. stay safe, Marie!

    1. I’m shocked Michael!!!! Reading through all your posts I thought you’d been everywhere!!!!😂 Well I’ve no doubt but that you certainly will make it some time. ✈️

    1. I think I set out with ’20 reasons to visit Belize’ but I kept adding more and more – didn’t want to leave anything out! If you like tropical islands well this is similar really but with a great ancient culture thrown in. I want to go back!!!!

  1. What a fantastic post, Marie! Belize sounds and looks amazing. 70 reasons right here why I liked it more than anything I’ve read today😊.

    1. Ah thank you!! Have to admit that I flick through it myself on occasion if I need cheering up!….. all that colour and sunshine!

  2. Wonderful! Belize has been on our list for the longest time. There’s too many wonderful places to go! Not enough vacation days. But glad I can live through you 🙂

    1. I know!!! Not to mention all the lost time this past 18 months or whatever! Well I hope you get there some day – well worth it no matter what sort of holiday you like – I think it pretty much ticks all the boxes so you can’t go wrong!

      1. An educational program in the States, a number of years ago teaching geography in a “fun new way”. the program’s title was: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SAN DIEGO? Belize was mentioned in the program’s theme song.
