Episode 98-B: Part 2 of October 2017 Aruba Trip Report

To pick things up from where we left off last time, I’m here in Eagle beach on record for the 2nd part of my October 2017 Aruba Trip Report.

It’s a perfect day out here with minimal clouds, warm but refreshing temperature, lovely breeze, and most of the all, the water feels great. I got out of the water to record this episode but I’m gonna hop back in again after I’m done.

Now for the recount of our experiences yesterday or day 2 of our trip. It was a Monday morning filled with busy work and errands. We rented a house instead of a timeshare so we had to take care of stuff for that. Afterwards, I went grocery shopping on Super Food and headed to the digital hotspot center to get my pocket Wi-Fi reactivated…

Episode 98A: Part 1 of October 2017 Aruba Trip Report

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.

EP97 – Get From Under the Palapa and See Aruba

How many years have you been going to Aruba? Have you explored Aruba during those years you’ve been there? On this episode of One Happy Podcast, Maggie and I discuss why we encourage people, especially the Aruba lovers, to go out and explore the island. There is so much to see and do!

It all started from a post I saw on the Aruba Forums of someone taking a picture of the menu of Fermin’s. One comment read that they have been going to Aruba for more than 50 years but have never even heard of Fermin’s. It made me kind of sad. To me, the experience of Aruba is not complete if you haven’t seen all the wonderful things that island has to offer outside the resort areas.

I know that there are some people who just wish to decompress and relax, and that’s perfectly understandable. It’s your vacation. Your time. Your call. But you may never know what you’re missing out on if you never step out of that comfort zone.

Bottomline is, I urge all of you who are tuning in right now to take chances and see what the entirety of Aruba has to offer. Rent a jeep. Just take off. Find a little nook or cranny of Aruba that you can call your special place. We’ve found ours. And it’s our wish that you will find yours too.

On another note, if anyone will be down in Aruba on the 24th of October, come join us at Legends Pub at 7:00 p.m. for One Happy Podcast’s 3rd Anniversary Party. We would absolutely love to meet you there. Come, let’s chat, drink, and be merry!
