Belize’s newest and second Road Warrior Lebawit “Lily” Girma has been blogging away about her experiences and trips all over the country. Her latest stop is our beautiful Isla Bonita, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
Lily’s mission - to capture the cultural explosion at the Costa Maya Festival and we noticed her every night at the festival backing two large cameras. Her wonderful pictures can be appreciated on her blog. She has already posted some wonderful images and as she continues her stay on Ambergris Caye she will be posting more images and information of her experiences.
Ambergris Today’s Editor, Dorian Nuñez, caught up with Lily at Central Park during the Costa Maya Festival Beach Party. She had nothing but great things to say about her time in Belize so far. She commented that she was excited for her scheduled trips in San Pedro and Caye Caulker which include a fly fishing lesson, a trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve/Shark Ray Alley and a visit to the Marco Gonzalez Maya Site in San Pedro, among others.
We thank Lily for painting such a beautiful picture of our home with her fantastic pictures and writings. We wish her a wonderful stay in Belize and we will be reading all of her post. Nice to meet you Lily; all the best!
*Lily is a published travel photographer and writer. With four languages under her belt and three continents on her “lived-in” list including Africa, Europe and the Americas, her calling is to explore and expose the beauty in foreign lands and cultures.
To date, Lily’s images have been published by Lonely Planet Travel Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, the UK Guardian, the Matador Travel Network, and various travel guides, including “Schmapp!” and Lonely Planet. She has also been commissioned for commercial, website and editorial photo shoots by The Grenada Board of Tourism for the launch of their new site, and 5-star boutique resorts such as LaLuna in Grenada. Her photographs have been sold to various attractions and hotels overseas.
Lily’s focus, while in Belize, will be adventure. Her journey began in Cayo this July, but throughout her stay, she will also have a chance to experience most - if not all, the adventure attractions found throughout the length and breadth of Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret. Continuing on the impetus of our first Road Warrior, we can certainly expect great things from Lily’s work. With that said, please be sure to follow her adventures via her blog.
Please be sure to meet Lily on her facebook page and view her journey by checking out her gallery. And while you’re learning her work through her facebook, be sure to follow her on Twitter.
