Today on Episode 28 of One Happy Podcast we travel to Aruba with newlyweds Craig and Dee Bell. A few months ago I met Dee on one of the Facebook groups as she was planning a honeymoon to One Happy Island. She really stood out as someone who wanted to do more than just travel to an island and sit under a palm tree, Dee wanted to really get to know the ins and outs of where she was going. It was apparent by the questions Dee asked that she wasn’t your average vacation… she was one of us.
Through conversations I learned that she had stumbled across my podcast and asked if she would like to be a guest upon her return. Luckily for me (and you guys) she said yes, which brings us to now. Now Dee is here with her brand new husband Craig to take us on a journey to their Aruba.
On this episode we get a chance to look at Aruba through the eyes of someone who had never visited before. It all starts with how they met and fell in love… who doesn’t enjoy a good love story. Then we talk about how they ended up going to Aruba, an island neither of them knew about, for their honeymoon.
Whether you’ve been visiting so long that you can’t really remember your first visit or if you are someone who has yet to step foot on Aruba, you’ll get something from this episode of One Happy Podcast. We hear Craig and Dee describe in their own words what was like when they first exited the airport. From their they take us on a little tour of the Riu Antillas including a description of the beach, dining areas and the oceanfront view from the 11th floor.
While it is true that the Riu Antillas is an all-inclusive, don’t think Craig and Dee spent all of their time on property. They also tell us about a couple of restaurants they visited off property; the super romantic Passion’s on the Beach and ever popular Linda’s Dutch Pancakes. If that isn’t enough we also get a very detailed description of two excursions these honeymooners enjoyed while on the island. Of course we finish it all off with a visit to the “Eye of the Hurricane”. All together this episode is about 40 minutes of imagery and information for your listening pleasure as told by those who experienced it, Craig and Dee Bell.Details
