{key west} paradise waters

December 18, 2017

At the end of summer, I went on a friend trip. My good friend from college and I went on a trip together to Key West. I’d traveled with him before so it was very exciting! We decided on Key West because why not? And we thought it would be fun to go to a beach-y kind of place. It turns out that we were lucky to have gone to Key West before the big hurricanes because even though everyone is trying to rebuild, I assume it just won’t be the same.

Since most of the trips I take I try to make pretty low budget, we decided to splurge a bit at Key West and we stayed at a really nice resort: Southernmost Point Resort, which boasted a number of its own fresh water swimming pools (including one just for adults, which was super plush), plus a number of docks right into the ocean, and its own sandy beach. Ahhh … what place to just relax right by the water!

Summer is officially over in San Francisco, but just recently I was able to squeeze in one last beach day, which was super exciting. I had never gone to Baker Beach before, located on the northwestern side of the city right in view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was fun to just picnic under a huge beach umbrella, enjoy the last bit of warmth left, and viewing the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge from yet another stunning point of view. I just can’t wait until next summer when it will be beach time again!

{belize} san pedro sights

October 7, 2017

After visiting the smaller and less developed Caye Caulker, we made our way over to Ambergris Caye via ferry. Ambergris Caye’s capital is San Pedro, which Madonna sang about. We arrived late in the evening and then spent the next couple of days exploring this fancy town. Compared to Caye Caulker, I was completely surprised by all the the vehicles on the island. This is completely necessary in San Pedro though because Ambergris Caye is so much bigger than Caye Caulker.

Some of the sights we saw were the ultra fancy resorts along the coast, the local artisan market, which was pretty empty since it was low season, and the rays just swimming around all over the place!
