EP55: Packing for our trip to Aruba

On this episode of One Happy Podcast Maggie and I continue our “Planning an Aruba Vacation” series, with the latest episode being about packing for your trip.

Please note that the price listed on the website may not be the actual cost of the rental but was the only fair way for me to compare different sites.
