Roatan Month 33 Roundup

By Cubiclethrowdown

Trying to get back into the habit of my monthly roundups! I also posted more than once this month, so there's actually something to put in the roundup.
I've had a crazy month since I last posted. I had a visit from Alex in Wanderland, and it was a serious 'full circle' moment for me. I remember when I first found her blog - I was sitting at my desk in Vancouver four years ago looking up everything I could about Roatan, and found her posts about a trip there. I didn't know that there were people who were long-term travelers, or who even wrote about it! The more I read on her site, the more I realized that this was something I could do too. I didn't have to sit at a desk and do a job that I hated! (It's still such a huge thing for me now when people tell me that I inspired them to do their own cubicle throwdown and create a new life or adventure for themselves - it makes me feel AMAZING that I can be a small part of that for someone!) It was a big moment of realization and Alex was an inspiration for me and a great source of support over the last few years, so it was pretty fun to get to hang out in person. You never really know if you're going to connect with someone you only know online, but we had a blast - my stomach hurt for days afterward from laughing so much! Lots of tidbits to come from our adventures in the next few posts. I can't wait till our next meetup!
What else has gone on? I took a weeklong vacation/visa run to Belize, which I'll go into detail about in some upcoming posts, but the short version is that I loved it just as much as my last trip there. And for those of you who know where I spend most of my day when I'm here on the island, there are some major changes in that department - hopefully involving getting some more time underwater.
Let's do the roundup!
1. Gratuitous diving photo:
YAY! I actually have one! Alex and I managed to sneak in a couple dives between eating delicious food, working on our sites, chatting, laughing at hilarious Insta accounts and watching Netflix documentaries (we're basically party animals). Here's a photo of us at Mary's Place, one of Roatan's premier dive sites. Many thanks to Barefoot Divers for taking us out, and to my good friend Ana for the photo.

2. Posts from the last month:
More than one! Go me!

3. Best thing I've found on the internet this month:
Here's a little-known fact about me - I absolutely ADORE stop-motion shorts. I recently re-discovered one of my old favorites, Pes, who has come out with some fantastic new ones. 'Western Spaghetti' is seriously just SO good, and you should watch it. I can (and have) watched this all day!!

Guys, make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter ... there's lots of extras posted there that don't make it onto the blog. I also have Google+ if anyone even uses that? And I'm on Bloglovin', so you can follow me there too! Plus it makes me try to post more than once a month. So there's that.
