The First Day of the Rest of our Lives


Tomorrow Ken and I start our journey to Belize.  Life has been good to us and we have had the luxuries of travel, adventure, family and friends.  We have been able to travel to a few continents, adventure in the mountains and sea, experience exotic places and interesting landscapes, observe unique animals both above and below the sea and most importantly spend time with amazing and interesting people.  Those experiences have stretched us and allowed us a unique and wonderful view of the planet and its inhabitants.  We are blessed. 
This new chapter will stretch our capacity even further and we are both excited and anxious.  People sometimes ask us whether we are scared, or tell us that they would be terrified to quit jobs, sell everything and move to another country.  Well the truth is we are a bit scared.  The future is unknown and as we step into our trusty, soon to be rusty, Jeep that we affectionately call “Ruby” we will begin a journey that starts with being homeless for an undetermined amount of time.  There is no lack of things to be fearful of as we set out across land and sea to make a new life. 
But fear is not a dictator and life is too short to not take a chance on making a dream come true.  We can’t wait to be on the other side of the travel and adventure industry.  We can’t wait to create beautiful and inviting spaces and show our guests all the wonder and adventure that our pristine space in Belize has to offer. 

So, today Ken and I are celebrating the beginning of the next chapter of our lives – Leaning Palm Resort in Belize – Off We Go!
