I recently got back from a friend's wedding in Aruba. As you might expect, it was amazing! It was my first trip and I wish I had an opportunity to read this board BEFORE I went, but...better late than never right?
Unfortunately, I had two unsettling experiences while in Aruba, both of which occurred at the Radisson. The most upsetting was that that my camera, filled with wedding photos, was "lost".
Do you have any advice on what I can do?
I know I did not "misplace" it. We have checked with all members of the wedding to ensure they didn't accidentally pack it up and have continuously checked with the hotel, but it is no where to be found.
I am absolutely positive I had it on Sunday, August 17 at Gilligans during lunch. We left and went to join others in our group at the beach (hut #123). After leaving the beach 3 hours later, the camera was gone. The only two options are that it was taken from my bag on the beach or I left it on the table at Gilligans and it was taken from there. Either way, I'm devestated.
Since I am new to the Aruban way of life, are there any known places I should look. When this happens, do people tend to try and re-sell it? pawn it?
I tried looking at internet swapshops for Aruba, but came up empty. I would do anything to just get the memory card back. They can keep the camera!!!
Thanks for any advice you have. I am just so sad that the photos are gone. It put a damper on the whole trip and even now, I'm still scrambling to think of a way to find it...
