Our tour started off with another cave stop. You could stand inside and see both ends, and it was breath-taking. So beautiful.
Then to the ruins! They were discovered by our guide's great uncle, so he truly was a great source of history and information. It was fascinating to see where an entire civilization lived and died and what they left behind.
It was a lot of stairs.
One amazing fact - most of the hills in the distance are actually buried ruins that have not been excavated. It makes for interesting topography.
We also got to cuddle with 1000 year old trees and enjoy the year round flora - including the black orchid, which is Belize's national flower.
The only other excursion we enjoyed outside of Gaia's walls was biking to a nearby waterfall and toasting to our anniversary with champagne in plastic wine glasses. Keeping it classy for 10 years.
While back on property, we explored the organic garden that we had been enjoying the fruits from.
And basically any other time was spent lounging. We focused our time in the hammocks. Plus I got a massage and a facial. Oh the delight.
That about wraps up our fun. Our travel was perfectly uneventful. other than being amazed at the sheer amount of people at the Belize airport on a Saturday.
This reprieve came at a good time for us, because our lives are extremely full right now. I'm so thankful for the time away with just John - it was a great way to celebrate 10 years!
