!Belizing it!

Belize was nothing like I imagined it will be. I LOVED it and stayed more days than planned. On my second day, I met Barry who introduced me to some wonderful people. Together we had fun in Belize, we had lunch in a house in the middle of the sea (the house has a swimming pool right in the middle of the sea -amazing, right. The boys cooked and Kelly made the best pina coladas ever. The next day we visited San Pedro (that Island Madonna sang about – la Isla bonita) with Barry as our guide.

I rode with Kelly & Pam (2 of the wonderful people Barry introduced me to) in a rented car to San Ignacio, we went to the market on the Guatemala side of the border and drove to Hopkins. While there, I took a day visit to Dangriga with Isabelle (another of the great people I was introduced to -she has a tour company in Hopkins, so if you need one will put you through) and I saw a Nigerian (yes I was HAPPY, after 8 months on the road, it felt good to see one of us), they had a Nigerian church and stores that sell Nigerian movies (Nigerian movies are a big deal in Belize). It was sad to leave but definitely I will be going back – I loved everything about Belize and I stayed in a cool hostel right in front of the beach at Caye Caulker.

About The Adventures of a Nigerian-American

I love to experience new cultures and explore the world. My family calls me ‘Ajala the Traveler’. Ajala is a Nigerian who lived in the 1950s. It is said that Ajala loved to travel and has visited all the countries in the world. Several legend and myths have been woven around his personality and travels. It is also claimed he traveled using a scooter, a truck and on foot. He rose to fame when a song was written in his honor by a Nigerian musician. The song begins “Ajala travels all over the world…” Well, am not Ajala nor have I traveled as much as he did but I do LOVE to travel. At every opportunity I get, I never hesitate to hop on a plane or international bus. As of June 2016, I have been to 55 countries . When I'm not traveling, I teach.
