It is a great feeling to see your words and pictures in print. It's AMAZING to see yourself on the front cover of magazine. I look at it and think 'Wow, is that me?' This article was written a few months ago now and reading it back reminds me of the amazing time I had on this part of the journey. A few have asked 'Why? What was the point?' You could ask the same of any adventure. We do it to see if we can. We do it to realise dreams and we do it for the challenge. Was it Mallory that said 'Because it's there'? I wouldn't dream of comparing myself to Mallory of course, but the sense of achievement that comes from facing fears and working hard on ANY project, is pure gold! For me, the sense of relief, knowing I never have to do it again - is PRICELESS! :)

Formerly know as British Honduras, Belize became a Crown Colony in 1862, and changed its name in 1973. Belize was given full independence from Great Britain in 1981. It still carries the Queen's Head on its coins today.
The mostly Afro- Caribbean descended population, speak with a Jamaican accent, and speak both English and Kriol (an English based language). It's a tiny country, with a big personality and a lot of history, which is clearly evident in its present culture.
