    3 weeks and 3 days for me --- all I have done is reservations @ Papiamento and Pinchos. I feel like I am slacking - time to start thinking about the trip seriously!!!

    Love, Love, Love this great tip Peg! Those numbers are so hard to read even with my goggles on (I mean eyeglasses) lol.....Thanks for reminding me about the shirts at Divi also, will definitely be buying one of those, don't recall seeing those last time. Maybe I was too busy buying stuff for me, oops!

    Excellent tip on the passport numbers Peg. I also have my credit card/bank card numbers on the same piece of paper with the appropriate phone numbers to call in case of loss. I keep it in a safe location during my trip separate from the actual cards themselves.

    Great idea to have credit nos stored somewhere. I also have scanned passport photos that I emailed to myself for ID in case we lost them. My credit card is used so often I have the number memorized!

    Wow! I'm not nearly that prepared! Of course, I do my best packing under pressure. 6 days and we'll be checking into the Marriott Surf Club!

    I used to be super prepared --- overt time I have become lazy and now I find myself packing at midnight -- typically 5 or 6 hours before we leave for the airport.

    My biggest problem is trying not to over pack. I have probably packed and repacked 4 or 5 times. So ready for this vacation! Since I have a storage bin in Aruba, I try not to take to many items I won't be needing. 14 days and counting!

    Same here! I'm usually packing around midnight the night before our 6AM flight.

    I am going to spend all day tomorrow packing. I work Monday and we leave Tuesday. My husband is taking a half day Monday to get money and anything else last minute. I am resisting packing today since I am so darn excited! Tonight we are taking my dog to my sister's casa for her to babysit. Getting so close! Hooray hooray hooray!!!!

    mi amigu no ta intenshon asina duru net bini ban abo ta felis "My friend do not plan so hard just come as you and be happy"~~ I was raised there and know the island and people like family. If you think you need to buy new iems for the trip do so myself I always wear a sport shirt, straw hat and leather thong slippers every where I go, never make a plan, just kick back and do what I want, that'sPreparations!-52.jpg the Aruba way.
