We are once again sitting in an airport waiting to board a flight that will take us off on a new adventure.
We made an unscheduled detour to Nashville two weeks ago to be with my family, and the word that keeps coming to my mind is grateful.

I am so grateful that we have this time in flux, and that we can change plans, re-route, and be somewhere in a moments' notice (relatively). This is not possible when tethered to a desk. Even though we'll be back at our desks soon enough, I am grateful for this chance to travel, learn a bit about the world, and for the chance to spend the last week of my grandpa's life by his side. I feel pretty blessed to have had such a kind, loving, and supportive grandfather, and am so grateful that I got to be with my family to toast him and his life! to Nicaragua! Grandpa Shep would insist!

Belize: Palapa Bar (aka the greatest place on earth)

Our awesome friend Cesar tipped us off to the greatest little slice of heaven, the Palapa Bar.  This gem is located on the island of Ambergris Caye, a little north of San Pedro town.  It was about a 20 minute bike ride for us and totally worth it!

The Palapa Bar

Yes, it's picturesque and on the water, but that's not even the greatest part.  Did you read the sign carefully?  "...Float in our inner tubes & get drinks by the bucket".  Say What?!
