Throwback to my first few hours in the jungle, which proved to be the most eventful to date
It's definitely a shock to go vegan when you're used to consuming a large amount of meat - and are even more reliant on eggs, whey protein, and cheese.
It's even more of a shock when you decide to do it, cold turkey, in Belize on a TREE trip.
But I made it through. And now I have a valuable experience to draw on.
The first TREE trip of the 2017/2018 season was an unforgettable one!
We trekked up mountains, climbed up ruins, tubed down rivers, slid down natural waterslides, jumped off waterfalls, partied with locals, and swam with the fishes - but we also learned a lot about the protected areas we visited, discussed sustainability practices nightly, identified over fifty species of flora and fauna, improved our jungle skills, and experienced real Belizean culture.
