On today’s episode of One Happy Podcast I am being joined by long time Aruba visitor Charlene Richardson who has been traveling to the island of Aruba since 1997. Since then Charlene has developed a relationship with the island that has made it feel like a second home. In fact, eventually Charlene plans on retiring in Aruba, but until then she settles for visiting 3 times per year.
In this episode Charlene shares with us how she has come to fall in love with the island as well as how her tastes in accommodations have changed over the years. Since Charlene stays on Aruba for multiple weeks she is in the unique position to enjoy her stay at the Aruba Marriott as a timeshare owner while also staying at various other resorts around the island.
Of course as someone who has been visiting the island for 18 years she has developed a love for certain Aruba restaurants. That isn’t to say she always dines at the same places each trip as Charlene prides herself on visiting different establishments each visit. Now as a result of having developed a friendship with fellow New Englander turned permanent Aruba resident Cheryl Talcof (Episode 19) her exposure to the entire island has to offer has increased exponentially.
Throughout this interview you will get to know Charlene and the island of Aruba through Charlene’s experiences on the island. If you are looking to get an idea of what activities and restaurants Aruba has to offer you really should carve out a half hour of your time to give this episode a listen.Details
