Happy Sunday! This morning, I woke up on the beautiful Caribbean island of Bonaire for the first time ever. I’m so excited to be exploring a new country… from above and below the water. But more on that in a minute.

I spent the past week upstate in Albany, preparing to leave on this trip. I was mostly busy hanging with Tucker, working out, and working — ie. tying up loose ends and preparing blog posts for while I’d be away. For the most part, I was on my laptop from the moment I woke up to long after the clock struck midnight. Hence, there wasn’t much time leftover for Photo of the Week-worthy activities. I did manage to sneak in a movie date with one of my good friends and both our moms, some crafting, and a few fun dinners with other hometown friends. But I didn’t take out any of my cameras once — hence, just sharing some quick iPhone snaps today. Not the most Instagram-able week I’ve ever had, but sometimes those are necessary — and even much appreciated. Life is simple when I’m up in Albany, and I’ve been craving that lately.

But fear not, I’ve got plenty of action coming at you this week as I wrap up my Belize coverage and we virtually swing back into Guatemala. And I can only imagine the colorful Caribbean goodness that next week’s Photo of the Week will bring! Can’t wait till then? Follow along on for of-the-moment updates on all my Bonaire adventures.

Week 215

Hope you had a happy weekend wherever you’re reading from!

    I’m killing time as I wait for some of my writings to save and noticed this post was loveless.

    Have fun in Bonaire (or as I already said, the Netherlands Antilles) and can’t wait to see the dive pics!! šŸ˜‰

    Hi Meihoukai,
    This may sound a really weird thing to say, considering all the travels you have tucked under your belt and the places you’ve been but it seems like you are beginning to really enjoy life. Hope that makes sense?

    I have JUST found your blog through the Top 50 travel blogs (by theexpeditioner). Really glad I have, you seem to have travelled a lot! I can’t wait to visit New York in October – hopefully it won’t be too cold šŸ™‚

    Having Tucker in the photos makes up for it being a different kind of week šŸ™‚
