    Trip Report Wrap Up

    Now that I've stopped sobbing at Toronto airport...

    We spent the last two days running around to appointments and squeezing every waking minute into being in the pool with the occasional adult beverage. Okay... maybe “occasional” is understating it.

    As always, we had great times. Qunita Del Carmen was a highlight as was meeting John (forum member, Aquaman) and his wife, Bobbie and their EXTREMELY cute dog, Alfie.

    I like that this forum helps introduce people and not just “virtually”.

    The "Price Smart Versus Lings" price hunt was surprisingly a lot of fun... I love a bargain! Particularly on booze as Canadians are taxed through the roof on it! And the staff looking at us taking pictures of price tags like we'd never seen a price tag before added to the hilarity. "Tourists..."


    We had dinner on the patio at Casa Tua (Arawak) – we’d never really eaten “live” on the strip so that was a trip in and of itself. There’s fantastic energy in the Palm Beach area. Not sure we’d want to be there all the time but it’s nice to know it’s there when we need it.

    We hit Yemanja for our last dinner on Saturday night. Unfortunately, we were a little distracted by an issue we were trying to resolve so our focus wasn't really on the food (but I did manage to squeeze one too many of Yemanja's “Retox” beverages in). We’ll give it another shot when we’re back down in the fall.

    One note: we've learned that it`s not worth driving if you`re dining downtown: parking is a mess and the traffic is practically unmanageable. Better to take a taxi and just leave the navigation to the driver. That`s one significant benefit to staying at certain resorts – you can walk to your favourite restaurants and watering holes!

    We made some new friends while we were down and learned quite a bit more about the island and what it takes to be part of it in a more “living there” way.
    Aruba is definitely still the right place for us.

    And, try as I might, no amount of praying and/or dark arts could magically extend the stay. But I’ll work on that.

    Thanks to everybody for reading and the supportive comments – it’s always fun hearing feedback from people!
