EP39: What Curt Spends While Vacationing in Aruba

An Aruba expense report is the topic of discussion on episode 39 of One Happy Podcast. The idea for this episode came from a few questions I recently saw on the Aruba Facebook groups. Would be visitors to the island were asking for advice on how much they would be looking at spending while on the island. Estimates were all over the place, with none being very specific. I don’t blame the people answering the questions for this vagueness as it’s a natural limitation to Facebook groups. It’s just really hard to give a complete answer on a one paragraph Facebook post. Thankfully I have a podcast, which allows me to give a much more detailed answers.

On this episode of the show I use my September 2015 Aruba trip as an example of what a trip to Aruba can cost. What I do with that data is list actual prices we paid for car rentals and dinners on the island. Hopefully by providing that information to you guys it will help you figure out your own budgeting. This post is geared more towards Aruba newbies but can also prove helpful for anyone wondering how their expenses stack up.

Sometimes it comes off like it’s taboo to discuss specific numbers, but in my opinion specifics are the only way to be helpful. When someone asks for recommendations for an affordable place to eat if only a name is tossed out it means nothing. Affordable to you may be completely different than it does for the person asking the question. By providing not only the actual amount spent at a particular restaurant but what it was spent on it allows for a more complete picture for the person making the inquiry.


EP38: Native of Aruba Howard Nedd Shares His Thoughts

On this, the 38th episode of One Happy Podcast I am being joined by native Aruban Howard Nedd. Howard and I connected via Twitter and where he expressed an interest in coming on the show to speak about growing up in Aruba. Although Howard was born in paradise he like many other Arubans now resides in the Netherlands. As many of you know Aruba natives relocating to the Netherlands in search of more opportunity is a common theme. Well now Howard has reached a point where he is giving serious consideration to moving back to Aruba.

Seeing as it is currently winter for most of you listening I am sure you are also wishing you could move to Aruba. While the constant 86 degree and breezy weather is a huge plus, Howard’s reason for contemplating a return to his home is different. Any day now he is expecting the birth of his first child.

Anyone with open eyes and a bit of common sense realizes the way children grow up on Aruba is different than in major metropolitan areas. Children kicking the soccer ball around on the beaches or enjoying nature is a sharp contrast to the Xbox and PlayStation culture common in the United States and other areas of the world. Part of that has to do with our weather not being anything close to what Aruba has to offer. Another part has to do with us forgetting to pay attention to how beautiful this world we live in truly is. The rest has to do with a misguided belief that because people have so much darn money these days we need to spend it on “stuff”. Howard hopes to avoid falling into that trap by relocating back to the island to raise his son in a culture that values experiences over things.
