After my birthday (which seems like ages ago now) and while Mandy was still in town (which was over two weeks ago lol) Mandy finally got to go skydiving! Rocky has been trying to get her to jump since he first got into the sport- over a decade ago, but she has resisted up until … Continue reading Mandy Ventures
A few weeks ago Rocky's sister Mandy came to visit us. I was especially excited for her visit because while she was here we would celebrate my 30th birthday! I get very excited for all of my birthday's (I usually celebrate all month long) but I was especially pumped about this one since it's a … Continue reading Dirty 30!
The other day Skydive Belize (the other skydiving company on the island) paid us a visit. Both companies wanted to have each of their instructors and Skydive Belize's pilot go on fun jumps (they jump their own parachute without a tandem student attached to them), so Skydive Belize crossed the runway and climbed aboard Skydive … Continue reading It’s a Company Thing
So the funny thing (well... a funny thing) about starting a new business in a foreign country is that everyone has more than one job title. For example Rocky is Skydive San Pedro's Chief Pilot and Master Parachute Rigger. He is also the carpenter (sign builder) and part of the marketing team. Each member of … Continue reading Signs
Last week Skydive San Pedro moved location for a day to visit the 2017 Fly In presented by Flight Enthusiasts. This is the first year of the fly in which was held on a private airstrip in Spanish Lookout (a Mennonite community on Belize's mainland). Rocky flew the Cessna with all the gear on board … Continue reading Spanish Lookout
It's been a little over three months since Rocky and I moved to San Pedro and Skydive San Pedro opened. A lot has happened in that time and the company has grown and begun to really blossom. It has been so much fun for me to get an inside view and document the company's growth. … Continue reading Skydive San Pedro
In an effort to save money, and also not to repeat too many activities that visiting family and friends want to do, Rocky and I have been trying to stay local on our last couple days off. We hardly venture outside of San Pedro, so on one of our more recent days off we decided … Continue reading Lazy Day Off
Once Rocky and I decided to make the move to Belize I had to figure out a temporary home for my kitty Zoey. Luckily my best friend Jessica (whom I have known for 20 years+) absolutely adores her and offered to take the job as substitute mama (Auntie) for the six months that Rocky and … Continue reading Zoey
For our second day off Rocky and I decided to head back to San Ignacio, but this time we were accompanied by our roommate Jessica Fry (whose birthday was the following day) and some fun jumper friends visiting from Colorado- Derek and Meghan Evilsizor. We took the last water taxi over to Belize City, picked … Continue reading Mainland Round 2
This past Thursday Rocky and I were finally able to take a day off to make a last minute trip out to the mainland of Belize! We had been looking forward to this since before we even moved here in November, so needless to say we were pretty exited!!! We hopped on the last San … Continue reading Mini Vacation!
