One Year Ago Today, Cahal Pech in San Ignacio, Belize
Hi everyone! I’m stuck in rainy Baltimore today making my packing list for an upcoming tropical vacation to the South Pacific. I looked back to where I was in the world a year ago today for some warm weather inspiration and found that I was in rainy Belize. Cahal Pech, the ancient ruins outside San Ignacio to be exact. I guess today, no matter if I am in the tropics or in the United States, this date is always rainy!
That whole day was memorable even though it was cold, rainy and not what the group intended to do. Sometimes going with the flow makes for the most fun.
*going with the flow did not involve me putting an iguana on my head, I just took the photos
But back to my tropical packing list. The entire vacation is about 3 weeks long split up into hotel stays and cruising. I’ve been saving up clothing that is old or I just don’t wear to bring on vacation to force myself to wear it or leave it behind. More room for souvenirs that way. Does anyone else do this or am I a weirdo?
My last question of the day is what books have inspired you to travel, have you just enjoyed reading, and would recommend to others? There are a few 12+hour long flights involved in my upcoming vacation and I’m looking for some good book recommendations beyond the normal Alchemist, Wild, Under the Tuscan Sun picks.
Any good reads lately? How do you pack for a long trip?
