    Live from the other, more rugged side of Aruba 5/4/16 - 5/14/16

    We do Aruba different than most. You won't find us lying out at the beach or pool in a lounge chair. We like adventure and that's what we found in Aruba. This is us:

    We started on the road this morning at 2am. Needless to say, we only put 12 miles on the jeep today. Last trip we logged in over 360 miles with over half those miles being off-road in the desert.

    We had a couple of drinks this morning prior to our 8am flight that we were required to be there for, four hours prior, according Aruba Airlines. (Nothing like those TSA-approved bottles. )

    Got in at 11:30 this morning. Crazy hot & not too windy. Staying at Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, as usual. 1-bedroom golf villa, upstairs, with private hot tub, BBQ and wet bar. It's really nice. We've, luckily, requested and gotten the same room for the past three trips. It's in the back of the property, overlooking the golf course with a great view of the Hospitaal.

    We did a little food shopping, stocked up the kitchen, grilled up some dinner and planned on a night in tonight, relaxing in the hot tub. Recharge. Notable, we purchase these delicious little herby pork/beef packages wrapped in bacon called slavinken. Try them! 15 minutes on the grill. Delish!

    Agenda? We have none, but this is how we roll. An adventure every day. The most we have planned so far is what we'll be making for our road-lunch tomorrow. Aruba dogs!

    Whatever we end up doing tomorrow, we know we'll have great fun and excellent adventures. Hopefully, we can show some of those who've never experienced Aruba away from beaches & resorts, all Aruba has to offer.

    Another notable, we're not against beaches. We do a lot of snorkeling, beach-hopping from coast to coast. We just don't lounge or even stay in one place too long. It's DH. He can't sit still. Seriously, if a show is more than 45 minutes, we don't go.

    Until tomorrow....

    Kellie & Robert from Aruba ♥

    They were good, got us here and on time. No reserved seats they assign them to you at bag check, they told us to be there four hours early and we were. Loved the baggage allowance, two checked, carryon and personal item and cheap fares. We would definitely fly with them again.
