Author Ann MacLean tells a funny and truthful tale of her own Fab Fifties journey to discovery, in her self published work, “Belize a Journey to Discovery and Some Snorkeling”.
MacLean, like myself, is a travel diva in her Fab Fifties, but her journey has come from a very different place. Taking the tragedies, heartaches and sorrows life throws at you, and turning them into a fabulous adventure life. This is what MacLean has done.
Her first book, “Belize a Journey of Discovery”, chronicles her adventures, backpacking as a solo middle-aged woman in Belize. It is a poignant diary of observations of the challenges any solo traveler faces, but from the perspective of one well beyond the age of most backpacker, hostel-staying, snorkel-enthused, Belize adventurer.
Our own fabulous travels will take us to Belize in March where we will spend more than a month. Reading this book made me excited for that destination, and opened my eyes to several places I want to go in Belize. Though still fairly new as a tourist destination, Belize has a lot to offer a traveler, least of all English is the official language.
Thank you Ann MacLean for your honesty and spirit and for being a trail blazer for women of a certain age. We are still Fabulous in our Fifties.
