When your world has come crashing down and lies in shattered ruins, what do you do? Well, if you are Ann, a 57-year-old novice snorkeler and rusty backpacker, you go back-packing through Belize, of course! Join her as she sets off on her hilarious back-packing adventures of discovery from the Caribbean cayes to the deep jungles of the colourful and fascinating Central American country, Belize, via the urban jungle of Downtown Houston.

Follow her journey of discovery as she launches her Barehotelier travel blog, experiences hosteling after thirty-five years, is stalked by urban wolves in Houston, spends the night with a group of cheerleaders and learns about the Superbowl.
A self-confessed political retard, she is travelling in the months following the Trump and Brexit elections and constantly finds herself in mind-freezing, sweat-inducing situations as she is expected to talk politics
Backpacking alone through Belize, she slips into Belizean time while she travels on old buses with vinyl seats, loud music and no air-conditioning.
She discovers the warmth and generosity of the gentle Belizean people as she swims with sharks, sleeps in a wooden shed with a tin roof, freezes with fear at the top of a Maya Ruin, avoids swallowing howler monkey droppings and goes in pursuit of Monkey River Town….
