One more update! LIV Sothebys!

Well, it’s been about 3 weeks since I last posted about my motorcycle trip.   Since I last posted, I got to spend some really fun time with Kristi & Ry in Belize and we were about to Snorkel, Zipline, River Tube, and just chill out on the beach!  I rode another 445 miles and ended up shipping my motorcycle out of Puerto Morelos Mexico, I got my import money back and flew back direct from Cancun. Well, it wasn’t quite that easy of course but I will spare you the details I’ve been home for a week now and it’s time to Sell Some Houses!   And on that note,...

Final post, Boulder-Belize and out..

Well, my dear friends, it’s time to say goodbye.   I thank you for following along and I think this will be my last post.   I hope you’ve enjoyed being able to follow me on this adventure from the comfort of your couch or living room, or wherever it is you watch the screen.   I hope you have found some value in it, something new, and some laughs along the way.   If you can find the humor, and the good in people, and laugh at yourself, you will learn about life and it will sustain you.   I really like writing about this and I hope getting the posts has been interesting.   I...

4,381 Miles, still thinking about Guatemala..

Well, I made it.   It took 28 days and 4,381 miles and I will be sleeping in my own bed tonight, and making my own tea tomorrow at the Belize Treetop Villa But before I do, I feel like I still need to wrap up on Guatemala as I was lacking internet and time.   So, I will do that.   Guatemala:  wow, what an interesting place:   I never did get a decent cup of tea in Guatemala.   Not a huge tea drinking people.   I really struggled with communicating…..why can’t they understand me when I say “miel” the word for honey almost perfectly?   The blank stares that I get...

Cracked 4,000 miles!

Cracked 4,000 miles!

So, I went over 4,000 miles yesterday.   The trip was only supposed to be 3,000??  While you are reading this, I am hopefully successfully in to Belize.   I was supposed to be in Belize already, but the delays have added up.   The roads in Guatemala are especially bad or good depending on how you look at it.   But whether it is good or bad, they have been slow.   Rio Dulce was not that great.   The river is impressive, but it ended up just being a place to sleep.   I think I am going to just try to get to Belize today.   I really need English, and I really need to be there for my...

23 days in, Goodbye Mex…Hello Guatemala!

23 days in, Goodbye Mex…Hello Guatemala!

This post is dedicated to crossing the Border, which I almost did correctly today.   I mean, well, I’m here. I’m in Guate.   So, I guess I did something right, but there were a few glitches.  After 23 days,  I bid farewell to Mexico.   It took me much longer than I thought.   I will say this:  Mexico, you get a bad rap.   You were good to me.   I was not robbed, stabbed, kidnapped or extorted.  I had my share of trials and tribulations, but as I always said from the beginning, be careful what you hear in the media.  Sure there is danger, but there is danger everywhere....

A La Ventosa…hardships, gratitudes…

A La Ventosa…hardships, gratitudes…

Sometimes the wind comes out of nowhere and knocks you sideways…. And I mean sideways.   The unrelenting godforsaken wind pummeled me for 100 miles.   It’s still gnawing at me now as I type.  When Sjoerd sent me the map saying “wind possible” in this area, I thought nothing of it.    It gusted and it gusted some more.  It kept coming….A La Ventosa!!!  Where was it coming from?  It’s obvious without even asking the Google that this place I have just ridden through must be one of the windiest places on the planet. It has obviously been researched because I’ve...
