Yes it’s true!
We are living on a farm, in the middle of the Belizean jungle and have been doing so for the past two months… Blimey!
That’s not something many people get to say and certainly not something we ever imaged saying, but it is now true and a badge we will wear proudly.
Its rough out here in the bush and with honor we have overcome the countless daily obstacles – snakes, scorpions, too many species of spiders, howler monkeys, alligators, heat, torrential rain, mosquito’s out the wazoo, wild dogs, thousands of frogs, driven cars without doors and waddled through lakes without floors… to name a few.
We have however temporarily upgraded our pad and been residing in a 40ft camper van. Booooooooyah!
Jenna: We are nearing the end of this epic ordeal and the excitement radiates off of us both!
Jenna: I have had many roles here… Teaching the children of the farm, delivering food to the farm workers, taking supplies to and from the farm to the city and using a testy dongle to backtrack over the past 6 months in order to develop a platform for what we now call our online journey. In addition to this I man the camper van, take care of my men and at sunset play on Luke’s machines – booyah!
Luke: This place is brutal. I’ve worked from 7am – 6pm everyday for nearly two months on an 87 acre farm and have been bitten by more mosquito’s than I have had hot dinners. Even JJ’s knackered…
I have a proper farmers tan going on. Every day one of the three earth moving machines breakdown and have to be fixed with limited resources. Not to mention just how hot and humid it is every damn day.
Wow nearly broke down a little whilst reliving the traumas in my head. All that and still I love it here. Every day I see my lake and landscape gracefully grow into the picture I envisioned upon arrival – over grown marsh land jungle > a paradise oasis.
