A Trip to Aruba is on my Bucket List!

I love to travel and thanks to The Mommy-Files, I’ve had the opportunity to travel all over the United States and even to a few places internationally.  I remember reading about a travel blogger who recently visited Aruba and it was just gorgeous!  I felt like I was there, which made me want to visit even more!  Aruba looked like one happy island with everything we need and more!  

I would love to walk along the marshmallow-soft, ivory beaches that are fringed by the calm, glittering turquoise waters.  Swimming, snorkeling and even jet-skiing would be a fun adventure to do with Frank.  Maybe even go on a jeep safari and enjoy the Caribbean views from an air-conditioned vehicle.  Heck, Aruba might even be a beautiful place to celebrate an anniversary and renew your vows or start a new life together with the one you love.  

Of course, I would love to go shopping in Aruba, where we would find an enormous selection of international brand name items with prices that are 10-35% lower than those in the United States.  While in town, we would also enjoy the abundance, full flavor and diversity of cuisines prepared by world class chefs.  Oh the pictures we would take!  Some of first dishes would be Maine Lobster, USDA steak, frog legs, duck, Mahi-Mahi, and more!

Then there would be the night life – mingling with locals and tourists at the casual beach and pier bars.  Possibly even hopping aboard a sunset cruise and checking out some of the shows.  Let’s not forget some of the upscale bistros and pubs we would check out as well!

What would be on your Aruba travel agenda?

  1. My agenda would be to sit on the beach under an umbrella and read several books and swim in the water. I would love to see the sights as well. I would love to go to Aruba one day.

      The water does look beautiful, doesn’t it Ellen? At least if we can’t visit it in real life, we can virtually. πŸ™‚

    I would love to travel to Aruba, it is so pretty and the prices to stay and eat there are so cheap. The beaches are breathtaking and I would just love to sit on the beach and soak up the sun!
