A Boat Dock in Belize

Having been in Belize for over a week, the highlight of the expedition, a trip to a Mayan Temple, was to be the next day. After spending the day relaxing and snorkeling on South Caye, we had arrived back at our motel rather late in the evening.

Fierce storms were in the area,and it was doubtful because of high water and flooding as to whether we would still be able to make the trip to the ancient Mayan pyramid.

It consisted of boating up the Maya River for 45 minutes and then hacking our way for five hours through the jungle with machetes, staying over night, sleeping in sleeping bags and returning the next day. I was all for adventure, but the longer I remained in the jungle , the less I thought this might be a good idea,(those snakes are awfully big) I think I had reached the limit of my adventurous soul.

As we approached the boat dock and headed for the motel I had lagged behind the rest, it was fascinating being near the ocean while the storms raged out at sea! I watched for some time, listening to the thunder and being held in awe of the lightning reflecting off the clouds.

The storm appeared to be getting closer, it seemed to be time to go for shelter if I didn’t want to become a lightning rod. The group consisted of five, three women and two men and were thus divided up in separate adjoining rooms. As I entered my room, I heard voices coming from the adjoining room where the ladies were staying, yelling for me to come inside because of the approaching storm.

Being I was already inside, I became confused as to why they were yelling. I stepped out on the balcony and inquired as to why they were yelling at me when I wasn’t down on the boat dock. I scared the living daylights out of them, they swore that I had been standing on that boat dock until the very second that I spoke to them.

It was rather unnerving to all concerned, three people saw me on that boat dock when I wasn’t on it, they couldn’t have all been seeing something that wasn’t there. Is it possible , as the Aborigines believe, that when someone visits an area, they leave an aura that can bee seen forever! That is how the Aborigine Trackers track someone across solid rock and find lost travelers in the Outback.

We all had a good laugh about it and blamed it on the beer we had consumed, but not that much beer had been drank. However the fact that I did have a vague memory of contact with some sort of alien beings while standing on that dock haunted me. The trip was ultimately canceled, I had made contact with the ET’s ,(their ship was behind the storm clouds), I was counseled in the fact I no longer needed to trek into the jungle, it was to my best interest to avoid the situation.

I also sensed that for a while at least, part of me remained standing there,while the rest of me walked to my room.

Do we leave an image that can be seen consciously or subconsciously by other people,did it happen because I had possibly made contact with ET’s?

Guess that is for each of us to decide in our own way.

Budget Travel: Is it Really Possible?

With very rare exemptions, everyone wants to travel. This is so due to several reasons like business, education and leisure. This is the main reason why a lot of people set aside considerable amounts in order to afford the essentials of travel. For one, the person has to invest on gathering information about the country of destination. Follow that up with the plane tickets, hotel accommodations and pocket money that one will have to have money for. With all of these concerns at hand, one cannot help but think that there is no such thing as a budget travel. Yet, one might be surprised by the fact that a low budget trip is very possible.

Safety and Fun all in One in an Adventure Travel

Travels are defined according to how the person wants to spend his/ her time outside of his/her place of origin. There are those who go out for the sake of business. There are those on family outings. There are honeymooners. Yet, among all of these kinds of travelers, only those on an adventure travel gets that different kind of thrill that only adrenaline rush could give.

 

There are several adventure travel sites in the world. There’s the Andes Mountains where trailing, climbing and even motorcycling will do. There’s the highest peak in the Himalayas, Mt. Everest, and its ever inviting stature. There’s the beautiful terrain for all skiers in Kilimanjaro. There’s the famous bungee jumping in Switzerland.

 

With all of these activities at hand, there are several things that have to be considered when one plans on taking an adventure trip.

 

An adventure travel is supposed to be planned to the very last detail. This is to ensure the elimination of delays since time is highly essential to extreme and dangerous activities. The plane and hotel accommodations could all be arranged through agents or through self purchases and reservations. Yet, the traveler has to take note that he/ she will be needing guides who will provide for the equipments, etc. for him/ her. This could only be done through arrangements with specific adventure groups in the country of destination. To ensure the legitimacy of the group, the person will have to contact the Department of Tourism of the area.

 

It is also important to gather as much information about the nature of the activity to be undertaken and the terrain of the area together with its people’s cultural practices. An adventure travel will prove to be fatal if the person is ill informed about the surrounding factors.

 

Adventure trips will also require utmost security. This is where the adventure groups become invaluable. They have complete know-how when it comes to the activity and the terrain. What’s more is that they actually have their own complete equipments.

 

Another adventure travel concern is the travel insurance. Although there are a lot of insurance premiums available, only large and well known companies actually give premiums when it comes to adventure trips. One has to note that there are certain exclusions in insurance. Traveling to high risk areas and accidents caused by high risk sports are all excluded in regular premiums. Yet, one may ask for a special insurance for adventure trips. This will, of course, yield a higher pay yet, it will immediately cover for accidents, loss, etc.

 

Any adventure travel should be dealt with accordingly. One must plan and insure his or her safety. There are many things that could help the traveler assure himself of all these. Yet, it is still up to him or her to commune with the terrain on order to experience that different kind of fun.
