    We are less then a week out - this is my favorite time next to being in Aruba of course. I love the week before, the final countdown gets me amped. I know the next 5 days will fly by just like our time in Aruba - I just hope it goes a little slower - wishful thinking.

    Yes, slower while in Aruba but quicker getting there :-) 10 more days! 5 more work days :-)

    Well - we made our change official today. We are cancelling our Manchebo reservation and doing all Palm Beach this trip. Playa Linda then Surf Club. We decided we like the space of the timeshare and we were nervous about starting the trip too slow then getting crazy when we are supposed to be winding down. I am sure this doesn't make sense to a lot of people, but it works for us. There are a bunch of little reasons we made the switch, but we are both happy with the choice and that's all that matters.

    We loved our time at Costa Linda last year, but the Friday to Friday check in didn't work for our trip this year.

    Glad you got all settled with a place you’re comfortable with! Now, did it end up being the Jeep or the car or taxis?

    Taxis for airport and dinners if we plan on drinking, jeep for a few days in the earlier part of the trip.

    when all is said and done, we all have to make our plans based on our own needs and own wants.
    it is good that you made your decision!

    we all vacation differently.
    we all march to a different drummer.

    as my trip to Aruba approaches (same arrival day as Tracey and Jon) I am organizing my card making stuff so that I can bring with me.
    I plan on spending time at night cutting, painting and embossing (Easter and Valentine cards)
    that is my different drummer

    Great topic. We are 69 days away and have started our box in the hallway upstairs of things we need to bring. Not clothes. Fun stuff like papasons, lotion, our new sun-glass clips for towels. Funny how this forum is always concerned about bringing straws, soft sided cooler, coozies, insulated cups, duty free booze, happy hours, fun bars locations, ect. Glad we fit right in with this crowd.
