I can close my eyes and think of a fantastic trip to Belize
At 5 PM on a weary Sunday night, I sit still with my head rested on my hand. I close my eyes and think back 3 years ago. I was camping in the middle of the Grand Canyon. I lay still in my tent staring at the sky. Thousands of stars look down on me, satellites circle my vision. I feel the happiest I have ever felt; full of life and excitement. I can’t wait for the next day. I close my eyes and dream. I dream of a trip 2 years before. I was hiking a part of the Appalachian trail. I was covered in mud after a fall in the creek, My cheeks were rosy from the long hike through the woods. I close my eyes while I’m eating the best peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich I had ever had.
Maybe, a few years from now, I can close my eyes and think of a fantastic trip to Belize. I could remember the sounds of the rainforest, the smell of an authentic Belize meal. The sights of the Lodge.
I have been a part of many amazing adventures in my time here. I have left only footprints behind but memories to last a lifetime. I leave with little but return with my head full. I can share and teach people how to be kind to Mother Earth on many different levels. I can show them pictures, videos, articles and I happen to be a great storyteller too! Thanks for offering such a wonderful prize.
