I can't wait to be back at sea! 4 weeks today and the @fred.olsencruiselines World Cruise with @travelshopgirl begins! #cruise #travel #selfie at Lamanai, once a major city of the #maya civilization. This was my favourite temple, the Mask Temple. The masks date to the late fifth and early sixth century. You can also find the Jaguar Temple and High Temple at this site. If you're ever in #Belize, I highly recommend a visit to #Lamanai - even the boat ride there is exciting! I visited in February and it was so HOT! I thought I was going to melt! Take water! #cruise #travel #CentralAmerica
