    Aruba is always on my mind, regardless of if I am travelling there or not. Then there is the fact that I have two maps posted on the walls in my kitchen/dinning room area, another map on the door to my bedroom, and a calendar right above my table; yeah Aruba is never far from my thoughts. The excitement really takes over once I purchase my flight ticket and make my reservation for the hotel. At the airport I am the most calm person on the flight, sometimes other nationals going to Aruba are surprised to see me on the connecting flight because they thought seeing as I was so calm and not all that excited that I was staying on Curacao. On the outside I appear calm, on the inside I'm a ball of excited energy!!!

    Why not keep them guessing..haha

    Well I'm a crazy person who over thinks, as most forum regulars have already guessed. I think we are changing our plan with less than 2 weeks to go. As much as we both want to stay at Manchebo, we also think we will miss having a kitchen. Being that we need a place to check in on Thursday and check out on Sunday, our options seemed limited. We may have stumbled across a great rental for those 3 nights at Playa Linda. We have to work out the details and agree on the change before Wednesday to get our deposit back from Manchebo. Never a full moment over here in Aruba planning.

    We found out last night we will miss friends on a cruise stop by 1 day. Our advice to them was find an atv rental or tour for the day. They like that kind of thing and are not drinkers, so I usual bar crawl recommendation wasn't helpful.

    Just an FYI Divi is all inclusive and you can save 45% off for those dates. I know you probably aren't interested in All Inclusive but you wouldn't need a kitchen for the 4 days, all the drinks you can drink and a great staff. May be a nice time to try it? If not good luck with your change in plans hope it work out for you

    I’m kind of sad that you won’t be spending a few days at Manchebo.

    I put in the dates and our info and this is really a great deal, especially the Tam rooms. Jon laughed and said no, we already have more options than we need. I dont know how he puts up with me some days.

    Just tell him he can do all the searching, booking etc. (lol) Never want to lose out on a deal so good to weigh all options :-)
