Aruba & Carnival
Our trip to Aruba was absolutely fantastic. If you ever go, you have to take the road less traveled. Luckily for us we were with seasoned veterans who knew the importance of leaving the hotel and exploring the island. Get a car and just start driving...you'll eventually run into a secluded beach you can call your own for the day, or stumble upon a natural cove on the north side surrounded by cactus and rock stacks. This island is full of surprises for those willing to explore it.
