Settin' to Jet

Jen and Sean are going on vacation. Where are they going?

OH YES. Belize! We loved our beach trip so much last year, we could not resist going back. The Caribbean called to us, whispering, "come baaaack. If you can't rationalize going to the Caribbean again, come to the opposite side of it this year and it will be completely different. Come baaaaack..." So we said "ok!"

This place is different in that it's totally in the jungle. Cooool. Here are some pictures of the hotel and whatnot.






apparently there is a bird sanctuary. You can climb a tower and look at cool birds.



We decided that to justify this 2nd beach trip, (my favorite kind of vacation) that we probably ought to see some sights or something. So after a few days of beach lazing we will hop on a little plane for the second leg of the trip.






And we will spend two days looking at some Mayan ruins in Tikal, Guatemala. Cooool!




Sean bought a book on Tikal which i'm sure we'll never read, but maybe.

So here's the route of our trip. Good times.


This is in 2 months and I cannot waaaaaaaait aaaaaaaagguhgug!

Cool trip! I'm so very jealous. That sounds like a good combination, too. A few days of lazing around and then a few days seeing some cool sites. That's awesome.

I'm also glad to see you're back among the living after that worrisome post from yesterday. Are you still on Sean's old relic, or did you get your computer fixed? I'm not sure, as you did include spaces in this post...

Jen said...

Yeah, we're back! it was a hard time yesterday for sure. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. I think we figured out the problem though so all is well.

This is a little off-topic, but have you ever considered enabling an RSS feed of your blog, so all of your fans can be notified when you've posted, instead of just checking back periodically? It would be fantastic.

Jen said...

aw, i'm a bit flattered. :)

I don't know how to do that. Is it easy? Maybe i'll fiddle around with it.

That is seriously RAD! Can you please tell me everything about it when you get back? Love hearing about people's travels and filing them away for when D & I travel. Oh so fun for you two!

Jen said...

Of course!

I'm telling you, go to the Caribbean today. It is magical.

As a newly minted physician, I feel it is my responsibility to tell you about tropical diseases. They are mostly in tropical areas with bird watching and tropical villas. Also, the movie "Apocalypto"--which is 100% based on fact--had something to do with ruins. This is the #2 reason that your trip is too dangerous and you should get a refund and come to Phoenix. If you cannot get your money back, you will have to make a choice: Life or Death. The choice is yours (as it would be at Chuck-a-Rama, which has many locations for the elderly and those looking for an affordable way to get food poisoning in Phoenix).

Wow, i'm so glad a new minty physician was able to tell me that. I had no idea. Yes, yes, i will refund my ticket today. Thanks for the warning.
