Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Born in Ethiopia and raised in Côte d'Ivoire, Lebawit “Lily” Girma became an expat at age one and has been traveling—across Africa, Europe, and the Americas—ever since.

In 2008, Lily left behind a successful legal career in Washington DC and discovered her purpose in travel, writing, and photography. Her first visit to Belize took place in summer 2010, when she explored three districts in three weeks. In 2011, Lily worked as an in-house writer and photographer for the Belize Tourism Board, in partnership with the US-based Matador U Media School. She explored all of Belize's districts extensively, sharing her adventures through a collection of more than 100 online articles and photo essays. Lily later returned to Belize on her own, immersing herself in the culture even further.

Her writing and photography on Belize have been published by CNN Travel, BBC Travel, The New York Times Magazine, International Living Magazine, Travel and Escape, and American Way Magazine, among others.

Lily currently resides in Washington DC for half the year, spending the rest of the time in Belize. She is fluent in four languages— including Spanish and French—and holds a bachelor of arts from the University of Maryland and a Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law.

Rhythms of Belize

Belize’s annual bashes are the perfect way to glimpse Belizeans’ celebratory spirit and get a taste of the music—more than six genres, each unique to a particular region and culture.

Summer Fiestas: (July) Towns celebrate their patron saints with giant fairs, games, concerts, and plenty of outdoor grills all set up inside the town stadium. Visit Benque Viejo del Carmen’s Benque Fiesta, Orange Walk’s Fiestarama, and Ambergris Caye’s Día de San Pedro.

Deer Dance Festival: (Aug.) San Antonio Village showcases all things Mayan. The highlight is a deer dance costume performance (an ancient ritual reenacting the hunting of a deer) to traditional Mayan harps.

Pan Yaad: (Sept.) This lively seaside, steelpan concert is a treat, with up to five bands from around Belize performing at Belize City’s House of Culture.

Belize City Carnival: (mid-Sept.) Belize City hosts a colorful Caribbean Carnival. Orange Walk Town’s Mestizo-themed Orange Walk Carnival is held on September 21, Belize’s Independence Day. San Pedro celebrates its carnival in February.

Garífuna Settlement Day: (Nov. 18) Dangriga turns into a massive street party on the eve of Garífuna Settlement Day. Don’t miss the drumming and punta dancing under the Wadani Shed.

Mr. Peters’ Brokdong Bram: (Dec.) A traditional brokdong bram celebration takes place in the village of Gales Point at Christmastime. Brokdong is a festive Creole genre blending various instruments, including drums, maracas, banjo, and even the jawbone of an ass (a donkey)!

I live in Belize....... 18. Dezember 2013
Von jacqueline m Feldman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I live in Belize and I am not surprised that Lily has not only captured the best and the most comprehensive look at our Country, but she has managed to capture the spirit that is Belize. I bought the book, because Moon was always my guide to this country that has so much to offer. My old edition was starting to get a little tattered as I lent it out to everyone who needed some guidance and just received the updated version with all of Lily's updates and experiences and she hit's the nail on the head for everything that is special about this tiny country. I met her several times while she was in Belize as it is such a small country, we all tend to bump into each other and what impressed me the most was that she not only reported on the things to do, where to stay, restaurants to dine....she actually participated and spent the time to get to know Belize and the Belizeans. Her photographs are brilliant and her writing style is easy and straight forward. This is the ultimate Belize bible and I highly recommend it. I have lived here for 3 years full time and I still haven't seen or done everything that Belize has to offer. I don't know how she did it....but she provides not only a guide to the perfect vacation, but has given me a lengthy bucket list of things to do and see that even I have not been able to do. Check out Punta Gorda if you want a real Mayan and Belizean experience.....from the Cayes to the borders, this is the ultimate guidebook. Great Job.....I only wish I had her job.....Jackie

Worth the wait!!! 18. Dezember 2013
Von Marcia Willmarth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book for my son who fell in love with Belize. I know Lily from Jamaica and as soon as I heard about her Moon Belize Travel Guide, I bought it on pre-sale. Everything Lily does is full of love, creative genius and integrity. Moon Belize reflects who Lily is...a traveler not a tourist! The book was shipped to me so I decided to have a read before passing it on. WOW! I've never been to Belize but now I want to go. That's the true measure of a successful travel handbook...makes you want to go. Anxiously awaiting Moon Jamaica!!

Great Guide Book 25. Januar 2014
Von Jason Hightower - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I just got back from Belize and had a great time. I used the latest edition of the Moon Belize travel guidebook written by Lebawit Lily. I HIGHLY recommend her book if you are traveling to Belize. I spent a few days in San Pedro and a couple in Caye Caulker and had a great time eating good food, bar hopping, swimming with sharks, turtles and stingrays as well as just relaxing. I found all the information in the book to be on point which helped me plan a perfect trip. Looking back I don't think I would have done a thing differently. Belize is a good look, nice people, nice weather, really inexpensive once you get there, good food, etc. Everything you need to plan your trip is in the book.

The best of the 3 major travel books to Belize - FUN TO READ TOO! This book makes you feel like you are already there! 2. Juli 2014
Von Bret L - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought all three travel books on Belize I could find, wanting to squeeze every bit of fun that I possibly could for my 12 days in Belize. The Moon book BY FAR was the best book (better than Fodor’s or Lonely Planet) in my opinion.

If all Moon books are written as well and concise as this one then I will buy a Moon book for every trip in the future. A minister at my church calls me "the fun maximizer", but the Moon Belize Handbook written by Lebawit Lily Girma takes it to a whole new level. I've been to Belize once before and Africa three times and try to get the most out of every major trip so some of her suggestions were exactly what I witnessed three years ago. The way this author wrote and the places she went really fit my style of adventure and looking under every rock for something “fun”.

Reading this book is like having your own personal travel guide with you – I could almost picture myself driving a 4-wheel drive in the Mountain Pine Ridge of Belize with this author in the back seat suggesting I stop for gas before driving into “one of Belize’s most beautiful landscapes”.

She has been a personal trip planner for me and it’s the one book that will travel with me this week to Belize as my own travel guide. I’d like to thank her for all the hard work putting together such a travel treasure!

This book has been an excellent resource for planning our trip to Belize 31. August 2014
Von Dana Stokes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has been an excellent resource for planning our trip to Belize. We opted not to go with a travel agency or book a lot of "touristy" tours because we really wanted to get out and explore the country on our own. There are tons of great tips, loads of information, and best of all it is written in a no-nonsense manner and even a little humor. No PC crap here - just the facts, ma'am. LOL The color photography is awesome! The book is now dog eared from being toted all over Belize, but it was invaluable for us. We rented a 4WD Jeep from a local company because we went during the rainy season and we had learned from the book that some places would require 4WD during the rainy season. We based ourselves in a wonderful little house called the Howler House in Burrell Boom (www.howlerhouse.com) which allowed us to travel to San Ignacio, Dangriga, Orange Walk, Belize City and Caye Caulker and still make it back to the house each day. We planned our own tours, reserved our own guides, and found the places we wanted to see from the listings in the book. Each morning as we drove out, I would read to my husband and son the facts about the region we were headed to. I will buy a Moon book for any place I decide to travel to from now on!
