Belize, the island of Belikin

Having not long come back from a Christmas full of mince pies and turkey in England I found myself taking off to Belize. Yes, I've been here before and yes, there is always something different to see!

The turquoise cool waters lapping against the crystal white sand was enough to send anyone to heaven and believe me, there were moments where I was heaven bound.

The island having been mangroves is now such a tourist destination one could compare it to Cancun, without cars and a lot smaller. Yes, it's still the carribbean, yes it still has some heritage but it's been invaded. Pure and simple. I wonder if any country ever learns that what made somewhere so special should be kept to maintain it's specialty...or is that too whimsical?

It's the little things...

Yes, when one is heartbroken, it's the little things that make a difference. A smile from a stranger, a hug from a friend or a piece of chocolate. I've been lucky enough this week to have been looked after by my adopted Aunt and Uncle. Knowing that I don´t have to come back to an empty house  has been a godsend. So…for all of you who have known heartbreak, I send you this. I know it's hard but.
