7 Things Elaine Wants You To Know About Belize
So, the real point of these newsletters? It's to get you thinking—critically and with an open mind. Before we packed up and relocated to Belize, we got an earful of doubts and concerns. What's interesting is a lot of this skepticism wasn't based on firsthand knowledge or experiences but more on preconceived ideas. Whether people told us directly or we heard it through the grapevine, the sentiment was there.
Now, let's get real for a second. A lot of the ”travel advisories” about Belize's safety and conditions are based on half-baked info. Some folks base their views on media soundbites or stories from a friend of a friend who spent a day in Belize during a cruise stopover. These opinions often lack the full scope, you know? So, we're all for thinking critically and not letting unfounded fears cloud our judgment.
By the way, did you know that Belize's population is just around 400,000? That's about the same size as some cities in Ontario, like London and Markham. Makes you think twice about judging an entire country based on what could fit into a single town, right?
