    Envious of first time visitors

    Am I crazy? Sometimes I am envious of first time visitors to Aruba. Finding heaven on earth for the first time was wonderful. Now I have so many memories that when Im having a bad day I just reach back in my mind and smile. Who am I kidding every-time is like the first time

    yes bill, you are crazy.

    i love the fact that most first timers get "hooked".
    Aruba is like an addiction.
    Where do you think that Arubans like to go? We love Aruba, what do Arubans love? The cold? Skiing? Mountains in the summer?Disney World?

    I often wonder.

    It is intreresting to me how addicted to Aruba I am and that I am not alone. I wondered if other locations have the devout followers that Aruba has. It is definitely special.

    It is addictive; but, in many cases, the rehabilitation goes to returning whenever you can go back. Crazy? I seriously doubt it.

    No I don't think you're crazy at all.Especially after this winter.........I can't wait ,we only have 13 more days and we'll be back.The only downside is that the time just flys by when we are there.

    P.S......cool plate on the car.

    Recently we were talking to an American lady who took her Aruban boyfriend to Florida's South Beach. One of the first things he mentioned when they went to the beach..... "This sand isn't like Aruba's". He didn't like all the hotels either.

    Over the years, I have spoken to a good number of Arubans who go to San Juan or Florida- either Orlando with its great outlet malls or Miami. One even owned a timeshare in Orlando since they went every year to shop.

    Miami, Orlando and San Juan all offer the same major U.S. retailers. I know someone who specifically does their clothes shopping in the states and another who seeks routine medical treatment.

    An Aruban friend who has transplanted here to the U.S. has a mother who visits her here and "shops 'til she drops", coming to the U.S. with empty suitcases and going back with the stuffed.

    All in all I think it comes down to the magic of a destination and what you make of it. The first time I visited Aruba was off a cruise ship during rainy season, so long ago they did not know La Nina , and we had downpours the entire day. There was no need for me to return to Aruba.

    Six years later, purely by chance, my SO, was offered a timeshare exchange free of charge and Aruba was picked because there were a wide variety of resorts for which to exchange and it was hurricane season.

    It was on that trip that we fell in love with the island, its people, weather, beaches and restaurants. Two years later we would have married in Aruba if it were possible then, but departed the Bahamas the morning after our wedding to honeymoon in Aruba. The rest is history. Some things are just meant to be.
