Apollo 11 Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin make the first moonwalk, on July 20, 1969.
In these clips they can been seen planting the U.S. Flag on the lunar surface and experimenting with various types of movement in the Moon’s lower gravity, including loping strides and kangaroo hops.

On July 20, 1969, with 600 million people watching on TV, an American crew landed on the Moon—the first people ever to walk on another world. The Apollo 11 mission had three crew members: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, who piloted the craft that would return them to Earth, while the others became the first two men ever to walk its surface.
Alright. To get myself in the habit of using this thing, I’m going to talk about my upcoming trip to Belize with Mora.
We fly into Belize City on August 4th, but will pretty much be getting right out of there and heading to the Crooked Tree Lodge, which looks utterly gorgeous and is known as a birder’s paradise. It’s the priciest place we’re staying but is still really cheap. We’ll do a night there, explore the trails around there the next morning and then catch a bus to….
Orange Walk, which is the base for visiting the Lamanai ruins. We get to the ruins via a longish boat ride that supposedly provides ample opportunity for spotting wildlife.
Next up is San Ignacio where we’ll check out the incredible ATM caves and go horseback riding to the Xunantunich ruins.
Then we’re crossing over into Guatemala to spend a night in Tikal National Park where we’ll be renting a tent on the hotel grounds and doing a surise and sunset tour of the ruins. Oh yeah, we worked it out so we’ll be there during the supermoon, so I’m pretty excited about that!
Then we head down to the beach towns of Hopkins and Placencia where we’ll do some more naturey tours or maybe just chill on the beach.
And finallllly Caye Caulker, where we’re going to go snorkeling and very likely get to encounter sharks and rays!
Basically, non stop adventure awaits. We’re also both very into writing fiction, so we’re hoping the scenery and experiences will inspire us to write some fun stuff in our (limited) down time!
This is what I’m doing with my amazingggg bestie Fio in just a week’s+ time!! We’re heading to Belize in search of adventure and here is our itinerary. Ruins, boating, snorkeling, horseback riding, caving — maybe we’ll even meet some cute guys when we’re chilling in backpacker’s paradise Caye Caulker at the end hahaha! …ha… ha…
But seriously, I’m beyond excited!!!
