    Hi gang....I'm a new member want just wanted to introduce myself and say hi

    We've never been to Aruba but very much looking fwd to going in March for our 20th Anniversary and finding a tropical home away from home. Everythnig I've read tells me Aruba will be that place!

    We usually go to Vegas a few times/yr and although we'll still do that, we're looking for somewhere that is more tropical and doesn't have some of the less desireable traits of Vegas.

    We love (and in no particualr order): R&R, casino's (mostly VP), beaches, salt water, pools, good food and red wine, and sunbathing w/ as little on as possible

    I'm hoping to learn much and be a contributor too once we get a few trips under our feet.

    Thanks and it's great to "find" you!

    We've never been to Aruba but very much looking fwd to going in March for our 20th Anniversary and finding a tropical home away from home. Everythnig I've read tells me Aruba will be that place! i am pretty sure that you will not be disappointed. if you are expecting green, lush tropics.....you WILL be disappointed. aruba is a desert island with tons of cactus and rocks. high humidity, warm trade winds and it is glorious.

    We usually go to Vegas a few times/yr and although we'll still do that, we're looking for somewhere that is more tropical and doesn't have some of the less desireable traits of Vegas. aruba will be a fun change for you1

    We love (and in no particualr order): R&R, casino's (mostly VP), beaches, salt water, pools, good food and red wine, and sunbathing w/ as little on as possiblehahaha as little on as possible :-) you will find great food and wine amazing sunbathing/beaches and pools and the casinos although NOT like vegas or AC, will still be enough to keep you spending money and maybe winning. the casinos are small by vegas standards.

    I'm hoping to learn much and be a contributor too once we get a few trips under our feet.

    Thanks for the warm welcome gang

    I'm actually John but a long time fan of Dino and his music so he makes for a great alter ego...lol

    We're looking at 6-13 March since our Anniversary is the 10th....or do we need to be considering a few days longer?
