When you turn 16 years old you can choose anywhere in the world and I will take you there; that’s the premise of the Niece Project. My fourth niece, Allie, chose Belize for her first trip out of the country. Over the last 8 days Allie and I learned a lot about each other as we learned how to kill bugs in the jungle as a team, live without internet/cell/ TV, that you could never have enough sunscreen or bugspray on, and we learned pretty quickly to not try to have a conversation in the mornings. We also ticked a number of things off of our ‘first’ lists as we traveled through Belize with Adventure Life. Allie not only had her first trip through immigration/customs, got her first passport stamp, she also had her first dip in salt water, and tried stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, and caving for the first time. She was also introduced to the largest bugs and spiders she had seen in her life in the Belize jungle…that was a ‘first’ I could have done without!
It was also my first trip to Belize, so I was able to add another country to my growing list. This also meant I had many, many new things to capture! Here’s our favorite Instagram pictures of Belize from the trip!
What is Week In-Stagram Review?
Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – I will post some of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks it may be less interesting – but it will give you a peek into my life of perpetual motion.Follow @Ottsworld on Instagram
