It was a question that a lot of people asked me before I left on my trip. "Why Belize?"
My answer at the time was, "Because my sister was going and I wanted to go on a trip." Honest, but not the full truth. I'd been thinking about going to Belize since learning to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. It's not the most sought-after vacation destination. But after this trip, I don't really understand why not.
