I am taking my yearly break and heading to Aruba for a wonderful and relaxing vacation! While we are there I promise to post a few times with beautiful photos of the island and the delectable food! Sorry if I make your mouth water and cause you any distress from envious thoughts. Please forgive me. I wish you all could come down some day and experience the beauty of this lovely little island. It is our hideaway every year since we have timeshares that force us to go. But no one is twisting my arm to go. I love it!
We have been blessed to meet some special friends each year and have a fabulous time on the beach and out to dinners. We look forward to these fun weeks every year and find ourselves counting the months, days and hours until we get back there again.
Here are a few photos from last year. Enjoy!
Aruba is One Happy Island. Ask any of the natives there and they will tell you this. What I love about returning each year is they remember you and welcome you with – Welcome Home! It does feel like home since we’ve been going there together since we got married over 20 years. I purchased one timeshare week back in 1986 and have been a few times more than my husband. But it’s more fun with him along side me. Now we have three timeshares for three weeks. Ahhh! It’s the life! But we are ready to come home after glorious three weeks to getting back to our usual routines and food.
Being on an island we have plenty of fresh fish and seafood to our hearts’ content. I love it all! There are many restaurants, too many to count, that also offer Italian fare, steaks (delicious Argentinian or New York), Pork and chicken. All are excellent.
Some of my favorite restaurants are:
Azzurro (Italian & More)
Suisse Chalet (Steaks, fish, lamb & more)
Driftwood (fish and seafood)
Yee’s (Asian cuisine)
Gianni’s (Italian & steaks)
Amio More (Pizza and more)
Yamanji (fish & more)
Waki Wahoo (fish and more)
Pure Ocean and Pure Beach (varied menu at our timeshare restaurants at Phoenix Divi Resort) Dine outside and watch the sun set and then sit under the stars and watch the ocean as sailboats go by.
Gellatissimo (gelato & pastries)
These are just a sampling of all the fantastic restaurants on this island that you can try. We dined at 21 restaurants one year and still did not get to all of them.
It’s a fascinating little island – one of the ABC Islands.
Here is a little more information if you want to know more about Aruba here.
