Well I will start out my thread for my Vac now, will give me something to do.
We are renting a time share this year at the Occidental. An Ocean Front 1 BR. It is our 10 year anniversary so decided to upgrade a little. We will probably do the AI this year. Last year my kids did not get to enjoy all the frozen drinks and stuff like that (at $7 a piece there was no way that they were getting them). We are not really picky eaters so the AI will be fine. The food is great all over Aruba, but is nothing really any different than we get at home.
We will definately goto El Gaucho tho, that was my favorite. We will not be able to goto Passions this year since we won't have anyone to watch our kids. Last year we traveled with another family and we watched each others kids.
I booked our airfare on Jet Blue. Prices are basically the same as last year. I am a little annoyed becuase I cannot use my JB free R/T ticket, it is blacked out for July. Could have saved almost $600 for the airfare. Its funny, I chose our seats, and they are the EXACT same seats from last year, and it was on total accident, just picked the best available. $2346 4 tickets JFK>AUA
Now to buy travel insurance. Found a policy for $149 Dollars. No charge for the kids and has a WORK cancellation clause.
Now to just sit back and wait, which will be hard. Then eventually I will get the car service and such, and one of the most important things not to forget EMAIL BULLY!!!!!
