Ep11: Maggie G and “Aruba” Curt Narrowly Escape the Snow March 2015

On this episode of One Happy Podcast, the officially unofficial podcast of Aruba I am joined once again by Maggie G. Some of you may remember Maggie from the very first episode of the show “Beach Bumming in Aruba with Maggie G”. Well we just recently returned from another trip and thought a review of some of the highlights needed to be done. Those of you who have listened to other episodes may notice that on these show notes I have time stamped topics so if you are interested in a particular topic you can just fast forward to the time listed in parentheses.


Ep10: Desiree Eldering Introduces Us to the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary

On this episode of One Happy Podcast I have the pleasure of interviewing Desiree Eldering the Managing Director of the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Desiree was kind enough to stop by to tell me all about the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary and its inhabitants.

Now the average tourist visiting Aruba probably never leaves the beaches of Aruba. Those lucky few tourists who do venture off the beaten path to this Aruban treasure will be able to see and interact with some of the 130+ donkeys cared for at the Sanctuary.

On this episode I spend just under 30 minutes talking to Desiree and one thing that is abundantly clear from the interview is how much she loves the Donkey. So if you are traveling to Aruba and want to do something a bit out of the ordinary, the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary is a great place to start.


Ep9 – Revisiting Aruba with Cindy and Rob O.

On this episode of One Happy Podcast I have the honor of welcoming back Cindy and Rob O to the podcast. We first spoke with Cindy and Rob in episode 3 “Investing in the Family”. There we learned a great deal about their love for Aruba. Today they have returned to tell us about their most recent trip to the island of Aruba.
Today you will hear about how Cindy, Rob, family and friends explored and enjoyed our favorite vacation destination. This was the 20th trip for Rob and Cindy and amazingly enough with the help of Arias Schwarz they were still able to find a new experience on the island. Think about that for a second. At this point Rob and Cindy have probably spent close to a full year on an island that is only 19 miles by 6 miles and are still discovering some of Aruba’s treasures. Simply amazing!


Ep8 – Happy Hours and Happier Times in Aruba with Tracey D

On this episode of One Happy Podcast, I am joined by a fantastic guest, Tracey D. If you are a visitor of the Aruba.com forums, the Aruba section of tripadvisor or the “All Things Aruba” facebook group you may already be familiar with Tracey. She is a relative newcomer to Aruba but has fallen head over heels in love and is here to share her experiences with us.

If I were to describe this interview in one word, it would be vivacious. Tracey has an enthusiasm that shines through so much that by the end you will definitely be wanting to book a trip if you don’t already have one in the works.


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.
