I just got back from a cruise where my favorite parts – beyond the food, the view, the sun and the family – was my stop in Belize where 1 to 2-hours inland, we explored some Mayan ruins. I even climb some of the ruins to the very top where I got a large view of the entire remains.
I remember learning all about Mayan history – that of which we know – when I was in school, and it always fascinated me. That was probably one of my favorite history lessons back when I was younger. I never expected, when I was told I was going on a cruise with my in-laws, that I would get the chance to see it all up-close.
Beyond that, this last week was more than needed, and it was so nice to be so disconnected and far away from everything. I literally didn’t have a chance to even worry about work or life outside of where I was.
Make sure you take enough time for yourself this year.
