I’m down here on location in Aruba with my ever loyal sidekick Maggie for our October 2017 Aruba trip. This time, Maggie brought her daughter Jess along. The three of us have so much planned for this trip and we can’t wait to show Jess what the amazing island of Aruba has in store.
What I’m planning here is a blow by blow recap of our experience on this trip. We started it with leaving Delaware for Newark where we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott for the night before heading to the airport in the morning. We arrived smoothly on the island at an ideal time, which was followed by probably the fastest transition we’ve had from airport to car rental company to our rental house.
Like the last time we stayed in Aruba, we opted to go for Royal as our car rental of choice. But don’t get me wrong, I like to switch things around with car rentals for the podcast so listeners will get a perspective for each of them. We got an SUV instead of the usual jeep because there’s three of us with a lot of luggage.
Upon arriving on the island, we wanted to eat at Don Pastechi r Pika’s Corner but unfortunately, they were both closed so we ended up at… you guessed it, Wendy’s. One really has to wonder why Wendy’s is so popular on the island. It’s always so crowded. But I digress. We had a nice, pleasant, and quiet evening after that at Así es mi Perú, where the food is excellent. We recommend it.
To wrap up this episode, we have so many plans for the duration of this trip like mentioned earlier, including One Happy Podcast’s 3rd Anniversary Party that I’m hosting at Legends Pub on the 24th of October. Do swing by at 7:00 p.m. if you’re up for it! I would love to see you there. It’s going to be a blast.
Don’t forget to stay tuned for the next parts of our October Aruba trip!
