    I have this puppy in blue. LOVE it! It's been dropped in the pool & it really is waterproof (not just water resistant)

    Where to start...

    1. 14" laptop for work and big fingers.
    2. Two IPads, two IPhones, two Apple watches, two sets of wireless Bluetooth headphones for the gym and beach, one backup set of wired hedphones.
    3. We leave a Bluesound network/Bluetooth enabled music player in the condo for our own personal use, that gets locked in our storage cabinet while we're away. And lots of power/charging cables.



    OUR COUPLE'S RETREAT. THE PEARL CONDO HOTEL AT EAGLE BEACH. CONDO ACCOMMODATES TWO ADULTS. YOU MUST REQUEST UNIT #8. https://photos.app.goo.gl/lRquP1F4VtxyZhR42 RENTING DIRECTLY THROUGH http://www.thepearlaruba.com/.

    We bring one flip phone (just for emergencies), one reader, and one laptop to check email. I hate technology. I still live in the dark ages.

    You and me both, just got our first smartphone, had a flip phone and to be honest, loved it. And if it wasn't to check on my fur babies, I wouldn't even take my ipad with me. that works simply with wifi so don't need that either. my phone is off the whole time and doesn't get turned on until we land in Nwk. we only get a sim card for one phone especially because we are there for a month so we like having one phone for emergencies when we are out and that becomes our local phone.

    I bring my cell phone, a tablet, Bluetooth speaker and Bluetooth headphones. I keep in touch with family and friends back home via texts, emails, Facebook and sometimes phone calls. I'm never really disconnected when in Aruba, I wouldn't like that. I just relax and get to messages when I get to them.

    do you all remember the good old days (of not so long ago) when our carry on bag was only to transport our toiletries and a change of clothes in case the airlines lost our checked bag?
