“Resting in my hotel room after a long travel day just thinking about how very, very grateful I am for this life,” she tweeted upon reaching the South American country on Dec. 30. “The good, the bad, the beautiful.”
And because Grimes didn’t return home to California until Jan. 8, she was in Belize to celebrate her birthday on Jan. 7!
Grimes and her friends, Jennifer McDonnell and Stephen Ford, enjoyed the sights and sounds of the jungle, even adding their own at one point at the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve. “Sometimes you just gotta do the Garden State yell,” the actress joked of their awesome video.
Unfortunately, their adventure came to an end and the trio had to return to reality, although there was just one slight problem! “We have to leave today,” Grimes posted from the island Caye Caulker. “Apparently nobody told the storm that.”
Grimes is home safe and sound and back at work on Y&R, but made sure to document her wonderful trip on Twitter and Instagram during her time off from the soap.
