    Re-occuring Aruba nightmare

    As I get closer and closer to my trip, I keep getting this dream that I am in Aruba but at the end of my stay and I missed the whole thing. I guess when I stop having those dreams it will be time to move on to another vacation spot.
    I also hate that feeling when you arrive on day one and see all the people behind the glass at the gate waiting to get on the plane knowing you will be there very soon. It's like time accelerates. But I guess that means you had a blast. I've whined enough. Time to start packing.

    That's one horrible dream!

    We met some people during our stay last time and brought them to the airport for their flight back home. All we could think on the way back to the hotel was: "Phew, glad that's not us, we still have a whole week left!". A bit selfish perhaps, but quite therapeutic

    Just thinking about the holidays the weeks (months?) before leaving already puts the mind there, it's just such a shame the body won't follow until much, much later
    Back to Aruba in:

    You it's a good think you told your dream..now it won't come true....old wife's tail....if you tell your dream it won't come true, so you are safe and now will have a wonderful trip and remember all of it....that is of course as long as you don't try to drink all of the balashis on the island everyday !!!!!
