For the class I took at my college, I had to submit a report of my travel experiences. Since I'm not really interested in the college credit, I could have just blown it off, but it was a fun and valuable experience to write out all my thoughts and memories of the trip. That, along with 379 pictures I took, will be a good way to preserve and capture my Belize experience.
The report I wrote for my college was 13 pages and almost 5,000 words. Way too big for a single blog post. And it was a boring diary-like account of what we did each day, with random snarky comments and observations thrown in. There are a few themes or specific experiences I could break out into different blog posts, some possibilities being:
- Belize as a Hollywood set
- Where chocolate comes from
- Flora & Fauna
- Injuries & ailments
- People & Politics
I could just post what I wrote for my class, and break it down chronologically, devoting one blog post per day in Belize, but that could be boring.
Who am I kidding? I could make it boring either way. After posting 200 pictures (with comments) on Facebook, I'm not sure what more a blog post could add, other than bore a slightly different audience in a slightly different medium.
I'll ponder it some more. In the meantime, here are some pictures of things in trees (in Belize):
