Part of our excursion was to go deep into rock caves in the Belize jungle. It was November, which normally means mild weather. Inside the caves? HOT AS HELL. Plus there were bats. Lots of bats.
But we had fun.
Our cruise last year had a rock climbing wall. Making sure that we got our money’s worth for being on the boat, we both did it. We too photos, too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcroom/sets/72157632016582697/
It was fun, exhausting, and a reminder of how out of shape I was.
When heading into the jungle (yes, THE JUNGLE) in Belize to go spelunking, we had to cross a bridge over the Belize River that was very “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” Like a nerd, I filmed it.
Another part of our excursion in Belize (via Royal Caribbean.) This is footage we took going down the river heading towards the ocean. Along the way we saw crocodiles and giant iguanas. Beautiful weather for a November! You can see all the photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcroom/sets/72157632016582697/
So last November, Shannon and I took another cruise (this time with Royal Caribbean) for our annual anniversary trip. We paid for an “adventure” excursion with involved spelunking, a boat ride down the river, and driving off-road. This is the shaky video of me almost getting us killed with my AMAZING driving skills. It’s also the first time I had ever driven a right-side drive vehicle. You can see photos from the trip here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcroom/sets/72157632016582697/
