About the Author: Dion Vansen

Dion spent his childhood in a tiny remote village called Trio in Southern Belize. His back yard was a lush green forest and a winding river that kissed the edges of the village. This is where his love for adventure and exploring nature emerged. Dion loves new experiences, such as hiking mountains, exploring caves, meeting new people, traveling, writing, reading about history and literature, and of course treating my taste buds with some succulent grub. Life is an adventure and Dion likes the idea of visiting places, indulge in new cultures, and writing a great story about it. Whenever the opportunity presents itself, hey! He’s up for some fun!
