Title: 1 year round trip, 4000+ miles, with smiles

 

 

 

Well, made it to back to Playa del Carman, Mexico, almost exactly a year to the day since we left for our adventure. Wierd coming back!

 

Guatemala 0600-We left our boat sad and forlorn, languishing at the dock in the Rio Dulce, Guatemala in torrential rain. We took the 15 min water taxi to Fronteras, then a taxi to Puerto Barrios (1,5hrs) then a small boat across to Punta Gorda in Belize through squalls and rain (3hrs) then a crack head porter and trolley to the airstrip in 98 degree oven (20 mins), then a small plane to Placencia, then onto Belize City (1.5hr) then a taxi to the bus station, then a chicken bus that put the ‘cken into chicken (4hrs, with 70 sweaty Belizeans crammed onto an ancient school bus, with gangster rap music at 30 decibels shouting what grand master funk bling retard is going to do to my daughters ass) and then a taxi from Corezal, Belize across the border, to Chetumal (1.5hrs), then a (by comparison) luxury coach to Playa (5hrs) then a collapse into bed at 0400.

 

Belize is not my favouriteL

 

Thats about it till Sept as far as boating adventures go, when we should return to the Rio Dulce to cut the mushrooms that have grown on the boat and wipe off the mold. However, my Dad isn’t too good at the moment, and we all headed to the UK for the time being.........so who knows what the future holds.
