    Mike and Jen - Escape to Aruba 12/6-12/20/2020

    Since we have entered single digits on the ticker, I am getting a jump on our Aruba Story entries.
    I am mostly packed, I started gathering things on the pool table in the family room as soon as the weather turned crisp in Wisconsin.
    Got most of it loaded into the suit cases, so far still within the weight limit.
    The only huge lingering unknown, is the much discussed and dreaded COVID test... we have several options, and deciding which is the winner will likely happen on 12/1 when we can see who has appointments available for 12/3 after noon. Fingers, eyes and toes crossed.
    I firmly believe looking forward to this trip has saved my sanity this year!

    Lacabana is very much unlike what you are used to!
    Very quiet.

    We have been visiting Aruba in December since 2009. But this year is particularly special, because Mike is retiring in a few days.
    We booked this trip last November and, like many of you, have been anxiously watching the pandemic unfold since March and praying that the stars will align, and Aruba’s protocols and precautions will allow for us to safely travel. We have been doing (or not doing) everything we can to stay healthy and get our green check mark.
    25 friends (4 of them also retiring in 2020) will be joining us for the first week, staying at either La Cabana or Eagle Aruba. The anticipation of it all it is enormous!
    I am packing my tablet this time to make it easier to post trip reports

    Congrats on Mike's retirement! Aruba is a great place to celebrate it! I am anxious for our trip, too (Dec. 12) but it'll be worth it.
