    Playa Linda 7/26/15-8/9/15

    Well a week from today, my mom and I will be about an hour out from the wonderful island of aruba. We are flying Southwest out of Pittsburgh, with a layover in Orland. Her and I will be traveling for two weeks with my dad, my cousin, and cousin's best friend arriving later in the week.

    We rented a car last minute from value car rental. They will pick us up at the airport and take us to their office in Noord on Sunday. We will then be off to the Playa Linda for our two week stay.

    We both started laying clothes out in our spare bedroom weeks ago. In the next couple days we will bring the suitcases down from the attic. Then begin to start packing strategically... I tend to over pack!

    We have new restaurants we are looking forward to trying: Quinta Del Carmen, Arubaville, Hollywood Smoke house, Local Store, and Eataly. We also have many old favorites that we enjoy visiting every year.

    I plan to report everyday while in aruba on our daily adventures.

    you will not be bored in the least.

    i think we all tend to overpack.........and just like you we admit it.

    we look forward to your "Aruba Story" and are grateful that you will take the time from your precious days on island to keep us posted.

    The correct way to pack for Aruba is leave half the cloths at home and bring double the money. That always works out the best. Safe travels.
    Snorkel Mangel Halto, day or night with a waterscooter. Check out our website. E-mail Stuart at arubabob@live.com or call Stuart local: 745-7459 Or visit: www.arubabobsnorkeling.com 50th trip Dec 11, 2017

    Yes Kent that's the best way to pack! But definitely easier said than done for me! I like having options for dinner. Makes cutting back vey hard
