    Restaurant Line-ups

    Having never traveled to other Island destinations I'm curious. Is the excitement of making reservations and planning restaurants and Aruba thing? an Island thing? a Caribbean thing?

    I think it's a travel thing... especially if dining is part of your greatest memories: you want to create more good times so you seek out the restaurants before you go anywhere and book as far in advance as you can to assure getting a table.

    I agree though: Aruba has a disproportionate number of good restaurants relative to its size. We're very lucky.

    And..... I think it really kicks in after the first visit! At that point you really recognize all the opportunities offered. I do remember planning for the first year..... but nothing like subsequent years! And now I'm totally outta control and part of the 'too many choices and not enough nights club' ...!

    It's a vacation thing for us. Rob has a spread sheet he developed. We know where we are going every nite to eat with reservation info . We tape to frig at location and all who travel with us either come with us or know where we are.
    From that he contacts Bully and makes those cab reservations. Bully gets one too!
    type A?

    i have my excel spreadsheet still on puter, but soon will be printed too

    then like rob and cindy it'll get taped to the fridge.

    i think in my next life i would like to be someone that "flies by the seat of my pants" for restaurant choosing.

    I generally make up to 2 firm reservations and 'seat of the pants' the rest with an idea what we want to try that particular year.
