    Question/Questions That You Have Been Asked By Locals While On Aruba.

    From the first moment we set foot on Aruba to our latest visit to our favorite One Happy Island, we have all been asked the same questions over and over again or get new ones with every visit.

    Here are some of mine:
    1.Your accent is not from the North where are you from?
    2.Is this your first visit to Aruba?(every visit, either at the airport, or at the hotel where I'm staying)
    3.Are you sure you're not from Aruba?(this one always makes me smile)

    Where are you from? When I answer NJ, I usually get questions about NY and have to explain we live in the southern half which is 2 1/2 to 3 hours outside of the city and we are closer to Philadelphia and Atlantic City.
    Do you get a lot of snow or what is the weather like there?
    Are you Italian? no-hubby gets this one too, and he answers yes even though he isn't

    Totally misread this thread (lol) Thus, the following edit

    Locals usually ask how many times have you been to Aruba?

    Have you had any snow yet (as we usually travel late November) We try to explain to them they are lucky to never have to deal with snow/cold weather, however, lots of them would love to experience our winter at least once!
