***Members of the Titan men's basketball team share about their 2014 Belize trip in this exclusive blog.
"Today was the last day in Belize for the Westminster men's basketball team. We started our day at 6:00 a.m. to catch a small speed boat to San Pedro. We all then proceeded to take a small plane that held only 15 people on it from San Pedro to Belize City to catch our 10:30 a.m. flight. This two-and-a-half-hour flight took us to Houston, Texas where we would only have to catch one more plane to get back to Pittsburgh. However, before we caught the last plane we had about a 4-hour layover where we all enjoyed having our first American meal in weeks. We ate a variety of food from Wendy's to Subway to even some Chinese. We finally boarded our last plane of the day at 6:30 p.m. (over 12 hours since we woke up) where our estimated time of arrival was around 10:50 p.m. We ended up landing around 10:30 p.m. where we all eagerly got our bags so that we could go home. We spent about 15 hours today trying to get home so obviously it was a very long day for us but the whole time we enjoyed talking about the great memories we had in Belize. It was an amazing experience that none of us would ever forget and we were all so thankful that we got the privilege to go somewhere that a lot of people would never be able to go in their life."
