    On this day...

    On this day 7 years ago, we landed in Aruba and my obsession began. Thanks to Facebook memory feature I got the pop up reminder that today is the day it all started, felt the warm breeze, saw the beautiful colors, dipped into the Caribbean at Eagle Beach. We had no idea it was Carnival weekend, added 2 nights in to our trip and stayed at the Tropicana before we moved over to Holiday Inn to finish out a week. We were not prepared to say the least, but it was enough to get us completely hooked.

    Was that the year they crowned you "Carnival Drinking Queen"? That vodka bottle tiara never looked better.

    Great reminder! I get the pop up pictures on my Amazon Photos love to check out what we were doing years past. Get many Aruba photos as well. Trying to remember the exact date of our first trip, only know it was 2001 and October. Cool to know the actual date!

    If you still have that passport...... check the entry stamp date..... I still have my passport from back then... there must be others that do too.
