being on the beach with a happy little cocktail IS the best - you're right!
I know it's a total splurge to book that jacuzzi suite, but I'm treating myself after a bad divorce (put my husband through 8 years of grad school & he dumped me one month after defending his dissertation - a real sweetheart!)
Thanks Chip. It was pretty heinous. But I made it through and now I'm taking care of ME first! (what a novel idea....)
So, I've thrown down the gauntlet (at myself) and I'm going to do 5 nights in Aruba with ................just a carry-on!
Am I crazy? Can it be done? Seems that we all tend to over pack, so if I take the smart advice here, I should be able to fit everything I need in the regulation size 22" x 14" x 9" carry-on and the rest in my handbag. (I've decided to just buy toiletries in Aruba to get around that 3oz. rule.)
Girls, can this daunting task be accomplished? Just bikinis, shorts, tops, sandals, sundress, right?
It is all-inclusive, but I'm certainly going to venture out to all the excellent restaurants and sites everyone posts about. I only book all-inclusives for the convenience. I don't really want to be bothered too much with handling money.
I'm definitely only taking a carry-on, so I need to stop at a drugstore to buy some toiletries (like a CVS.) Any suggestions?
To everyone who frequents Aruba regularly, where would you suggest my first happy hour cocktail be to really get appreciate the Aruba vibe?
