[Belize - famous for offshore incorporation.]
I’ve been keeping track of when I visit a country for the first time with the New Country Day tag, and it turns out I haven’t been to a new country in over a year. While I have visited numerous countries in this time, they have all been countries I have been to before. And most of that time has been slow travelling or based in one place.
So this is my first time in Belize, and it is also my first time anywhere in the Americas below Mexico. Central and South America have been calling my name for years, yet I am still working my way there. I have realised over the past year that I’m in no hurry to see every country in the world.
I’ll be in Belize for a week and then I will be making my way to Guatemala. This will also be a quick trip but I will be looking into places for long term stays, and no doubt I will check out a coffee plantation as well.
