This will be the final Aruba-themed post, I promise. Even I am sick of talking about Aruba! :)
While I’ve been to Aruba several times in the past decade, I have never travelled there by myself. So this vacation was a new experience in that sense.
Here are the reasons why I made the trip on my own:
~ with B’s current job, he can no longer get away during the month of March; I really appreciate that he graciously allowed me to go to our timeshare without him (B will have his chance for a solo trip this summer when he goes hiking in Colorado!).
~ since we had been to Aruba before, I felt comfortable with, and confident about, flying internationally on my own. I had a direct flight from Toronto, and was familiar with travelling to our timeshare once I landed in Aruba.
~ I knew a lot of people who would be at our resort while I was there.
~ I was only going to be gone for one week, so the chances of getting bored or homesick were minimal.
In summary, I had a very fun week, and am grateful for the opportunity I had to enjoy the sunshine, heat, and relaxation time.
Below, please find a compilation of all the blog entries from the trip. This may go down as the “furthest distance travelled” New Experience of this year! (unless I go visit my cousin Joel in Australia, haha!)
[Sidenote: if you have any specific questions about Aruba, please feel free to contact me - in a nutshell, it's a fabulous vacation spot].
