Aruba, One Happy Island

Aruba has been my home for the last 2.5 years, I truly enjoyed the place from the very beginning. One of the highlights of this beautiful island which will remain in my memories and always bring a smile to my face is the particular way the wind blows, that amazing breeze, made me realize I was exactly where I needed to be.

Aruba: Paradise Found

Where in the World is Aruba? I am in the Dentist’s chair and he is drilling away.  I try with all my might to go to my “happy place”.  My mind drifts to soft breezes, beautiful turquoise waters, gorgeous scenery and the smell of the sea.  For me this “happy place” is Aruba.  Aruba is one of the ABC Islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.  These Islands have a Dutch heritage and are located approximately 18 miles off the coast of Venezuela.  Each of these islands is beautiful, unique and definitely worth exploring, but Aruba holds a special place in my heart.  Aruba is approximately 20 miles long and 6 miles wide.  It is located outside of the hurricane belt and has an average temperature of 82 degrees year-round.  Pretty darn near perfect I would say.  The Aruban florin is used here but the dollar is accepted just about anywhere.   Even though this is a tourist destination and can have that touristy vibe that can sometimes be annoying, there are many qualities that will satisfy the adventurer as well.
