Ep7 – “Aruba” Ray Ellin Brings Comedy to One Happy Island

On this episode of One Happy Podcast, I am joined by noted comedian “Aruba” Ray Ellin. Ray is here to tell us about the comedy show he is putting on at the Marriot Resort and Stellaris Casino. But that isn’t all, Ray is also a legitimate Aruba fanatic.

Although Ray has only been visiting the island for a few short years, you’ll see that he has most definitely been making up for lost time. So whether you are at the gym, grocery store or driving home from work give this episode a listen and prepare to be astounded.


Ep6 – Sunsets in Aruba with Louis Johnson

On this latest episode of One Happy Podcast I am being joined by Louis Johnson. Louis is an Aruba fanatic who is about to embark on his fourth visit to the island. Louis reached out to me via the One Happy Podcast share your story link expressing an interest in being a guest. Within a few days everything was set up and we were recording.
Throughout this episode of One Happy Podcast one thing will be very apparent to everyone listening and that is Louis’s passion for Aruba. Being that it is late January many of us are being forced to endure sub-freezing temperatures but believe me when I say this episode is a nice bit of relief from the cold, snow or in my case at the moment freezing rain.

Over the course of this 40 minute interview we talk about everything from the most amazing view of the sunset at one end of the island to one of the most amazing beaches in the world at the other end. When this episode is over I guarantee you will either be thanking your lucky star you have a future trip to Aruba planned or will be compelled to start booking your next trip. Hope you enjoy!


EP5 – Touring the Aruba Ostrich Farm with Gina

Aruba Style “Twas the Night Before Christmas” 2014

So here I am just finished wrapping presents with nothing to do. Not really anything I want to watch on Netflix so I decided I wanted to do something “Christmasy” for the podcast. Although I started out pretty unimaginative, luckily I had a friend hanging around to help me out. After about a half hour of brainstorming my friend glasses o’ wine came up with a brilliant idea. He said to me why don’t you redo Twas the night before Christmas, with an Aruban twist.

Now I know it’s been done quite a few times in different ways but after glasses O prodded me 3 or 4 times I decided to go all in. So here it is, my rendition of Twas the night before Christmas Aruban style. I hope you enjoy.


EP4 – Tourism Done Right with Vallon Davis

Joining me today on One Happy Podcast is Vallon Davis. Vallon comes to us from the Southern Caribbean Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Vallon reached out to me for an interview via the “share your story” link located at the top of this website and was nothing short of fantastic.

Being that Vallon lives amongst the Caribbean vibe he has a spirit that over the course of the interview you really learn to appreciate. In fact, as you will hear, he even finds a silver lining in a dark cloud that would have ruined vacation for most of us. By the end of the episode it really is clear just how much Vallon loves Aruba.
