So you may have been waiting for that ridiculous story I said I was going to tell you in my last Belize post. This will be that post. So, the first day I go there, the person I was going with was going to be late because their flight had been super delayed. I knew this when I left the States, but didn’t know how late it was going to be. I don’t use my phone internationally for texts/calls. Therefore, I figured I would go hang out on the beach and by the pool a bit to catch the last of the sun.

I did this until the sun was behind the trees and shady on the beach and the wind was making it chilly. I saw that my back porch still was in full sunlight. Score! So I went back to the villa, snagged my phone and went to the porch. I sat there for an hour, or so and decided to head back in. Or, so I had hoped to do so. Turns out, the door was locked from the inside so that I could go out, but needed keys to go back in. Oh wait, but those keys were inside…

I looked over the ledge, but the railing down below for the lower porch was narrow and about 10 feet down and the actual ground about 15 feet. I decided that it was too risky to try going over since even hanging it would be a drop and the railing did not look compatible.

I thought my companion would be coming shortly, or a worker would come bay that I could call too and embarrassingly admit that I had locked myself on the back porch, so I decided to just hang out. Half hour later, no one had come by. So, I looked over the porch again and again decided it was too risky. I noticed, though, on a fellow villa that it appeared the back porch was connected to the front porch via a climb around the side and over the roof and down.

Wondering if I could pull of a spiderman play, or end up more like the bottom pic haha

I thought about it, and decided that I could play spiderwoman perhaps. So I climbed over the porch railing, slipped over to roof and climbed to peek over the top. Oh wait, lo and behold the entire pool and pool bar and all the people there were in full view. They would likely most definitely see someone climbing over the roof so I went back to the back porch.

And I was all like:

After more waiting without being rescued (lol), I decided to try again. More people. I decided to scout it and wait until the bar tender at least was turned and at least most of the people weren’t watching. I sat there surveying the crowd hunched over on the roof for a good 15 minutes and then I saw my chance. I scrambled over the roof and slipped down and into the front porch. Thankfully, I had left that door open and was able to get back inside!

Obviously I looked just as cool

Haha, I wouldn’t be surprised if at least 1 of the guests saw this, but I know none of the workers did. My mother when she found out, scolded me a bit and told me not to get kicked out on my first day, HA! I am thankful though of my climbing skills, otherwise that would not have been an option. Perhaps I would make a good spy lol.

Me trying not to be spotted by the employees. So sneaky haha

So, there you have my embarrassing story of locking myself out of my villa on the first day. I hope you got a laugh out of it, because I sure did once I told others what had happened. Feel free to make fun of me at my expense, lol.

While laughing, feel free to prep this easy frittata. Just grab whatever vegetables you have on hand, or would like to add in. This is a very versatile recipe!

    Noooo. I worry about stuff like that too–I don’t know who to keep my spare key with over here so I’m kinda worried that if I ever get locked out of my apartment, I’m kindasorta screwed. Yay for climbing skills though and I’m glad things worked out! :D?!

    In other news, i love and adore how easy this recipe is!! Such a great idea, and a great way to use up some of my remaining 30 eggs… 😛

      The worst is that I had no idea that the door even locked! You should give one of your trusty friends a copy of your apartment key in case that ever happens (but I hope you never get locked out!). I’m glad things worked out too haha. I’m just glad I didn’t get caught climbing haha. So easy and so quick. Wow! you are already down to 30 eggs?! Very impressed. It looks like you eat/use eggs like I do haha

    Love all the veggies you have packed in here!

  • Veggie frittatas are staple over here and adding in salsa is the best!
