Merry Christmas (Feliz Navidad) to all!

Christmas greetings from Caye Caulker, Belize. We are settled here for a week after finishing our trip in South America, the United States and a quick whiz through Central America. Apologies for not keeping the blog up to date, but we do plan to finish it one day when we stop moving for a while.

What a year it has been … we’ve visited places we never would have imagined, and done things we never would have dreamed of. Below is our Christmas video to you that shows just a little bit of what we’ve been up to.

To our families, old friends, and new friends we’ve met along the way : We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks for all your wonderful support, communications and humour during our travels. It has helped us not feel so homesick. For those in Australia & New Zealand you will just be opening up your Xmas pressies now. As I write this it is still midday Christmas Eve here…so time to go find a lobster to grill and sit under a coconut tree for tomorrow.

For those in Australia, see you in March!

Love and hugs,
Ben & Michelle

Co-oincidentally Ruben and Max were pretending they had received extra xmas presents in the post tonight and guess who they were from, Den and Messhel! (Maxi’s handwriting).
