Vacation Sweepstakes – Essay#36
Finding a spiritual soul mate and life partner is no easy task. Fortunately, I found mine 12 years ago. This year, we celebrate our 5 year anniversary! Over the years, we have experienced the ups and downs of life together- our love and friendship growing stronger with each year. One of the many reasons we are connected is our love for travel. Namely, our love for travel adventures that are exotic, off the beaten path, and away from the hustle and bustle of life. We don’t want a TV in our room, we don’t want a daily schedule, and we don’t want cellphone reception. We want to escape from our daily lives of deadlines and meetings. We want a vacation that emerges us in nature, adventure, and relaxation. We want a vacation where we can enjoy hiking, biking, scuba diving, and anything that gets us outdoors. That is why for our fifth year anniversary, I would love to give my wife an amazing vacation in Belize at Chaa Creek. The Lodge at Chaa Creek is our kind of place- a plethora of outdoor activities with an educational twist! I would love for Chaa Creek to show us the wonders of Belize and teach us the many reasons why we must preserve this beautiful country. I can imagine full days of exploring the rainforest and Mayan ruins, canoeing the Makal River, and horseback riding through the reserve. Then, returning back to The Lodge for a massage or a soak in the jacuzzi. It would be a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary and show my wife how much she means to me. And with a little bit of skill on the quiz and a lot of luck on the drawing, I hope we will be spending the holidays with Chaa Creek!
