We left Caye Caulker and Belize on the morning of Kel’s 23rd birthday – new year, new country! After a boat ride and a 5 or so hour bus ride, we made it to Los Amigos Hostel in Flores.
While the day of travel wasn’t very exciting, we had a big night planned for little Payno to celebrate. A bunch of othher travelers (yes, Aussies) came with us from Caye Caulker and the whole hostel got involved in the festivities. I baked Kel a cake (from a mix carried all the way from Tulum, Mexico), decorated the hostel bar with baloons and even managed to find him a Spiderman piñata – everyone else contributed by buying him shots. The whole hostel sang him happy birthday and are some of the (delicious) cake and we celebrated through the night with beer pong, giant jenga and stripping (neither Kel nor I).
Definitely a birthday to remember (though the memories are definitely little hazy in some parts!).
