  • "Streets of London" when away from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. 2 days ago At the end of last month Rose and I celebrated our 7th anniversary of moving permanently to Ambergris Caye, Belize. Seven years. They’ve flown by so fast.  Nothing to do with celebrating the anniversary but around a month before it we took a little time out from island life and made a visit to...
  • "Let Me Entertain You" when away from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. 6 months ago At our hotel in Cartagena, Hotel Casa Cochera Del Gobernador, we started every day with a breakfast. My favourite (favorite for non-UK readers ) was Huevos estrallados con jamón y papas. Followed by a plate of fresh fruit. And all ‘washed down’ with ? What else. A mug of Colombian coffee. And...
  • "Statues " away from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. 6 months ago The city of Cartagena is steeped in history and we found the best way to soak it up was to walk the streets. Well, at least within the walled part. Spanish architecture abounds and it is patently obvious that a considerable amount of money has been spent to renovate many of the buildings and when...
  • "Streetwalkin' away from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize ". 6 months ago When Rose and I moved to Ambergris Caye just over six and a half years ago we promised ourselves that once our house had been built we would use our Central America base to travel and experience the countries around us. We’ve been to the USA four or five times – we’ve spent time in …
  • 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'. 6 months ago Unbelievable. Four editions produced in nine days. That’s what a good dosage of omega 3 can do for you! But I don’t know about you but I’m getting a bit bored with it now so I’ll wrap up our trip to New Orleans with this edition. Thank goodness, did I hear you say ? Shame …

I am looking at moving to Belize in a few years from the USA. I haven't travelled there but I am planning to make a trip soon. I am very interested in the San Ignacio area. We are not really "beach" people. We are Irish and Scottish background, so we are fair. I would like to get some REAL ideas about cost and quality of building there, cost of living, medical care, etc. The things that are real in life. We want a calmer, more quaint type of life to retire in. Could anyone share? Thanks!
