Back from Belize and back to reality. All semester I was anxiously awaiting winter break because I couldn’t contain my excitement about going to Belize with my family. This trip was extra special to me because it was a place that my grandma loved and somewhere she visited quite often. She passed away over the summer and we thought this would be a great trip to remember her by. She was very passionate about traveling and wanted us to experience the world as well. After my grandmother retired as an ophthalmologist, she would spend weeks at a time in Belize exploring, and even providing eye exams to people there who couldn’t afford them. She had seen the world, yet still always seemed to find her way back to Belize, so I thought it must be a pretty special place.
