Episode Info: Hey all! Maggie and I are down in Aruba as of this moment for our first vacation trip in the island for 2019 and we’re here to give you a blow by blow report of our experience so far.   Upon departing, we left Delaware on Friday night to fly out of BWI. We stayed at the Sheridan this time around which was great and ate some really good crab cakes which are Maryland’s specialty. After that, it was an early start the next morning for a 4 ½ flight to Aruba.   1ST DAY   We chose Amigo for our car rental and saddled into our Kia Picanto. It’s a great little car that’s ideal for parking anywhere. Our plan for accommodations on this trip is to stay at our usual rental in Palm for the 1st half and then at an Airbnb in Noord for the 2nd half.   Dinner was spent at The Lazy Turtle, which was becoming a 1st-day tradition. The French Onion Soup they had was notably excellent. We planned to watch the Lighting Parade which was supposed to start at 8 pm until around midnight but we ended up coming too early and missed it.   2ND DAY   The next morning, we had a lovely brunch with our friend Ann at Windows Restaurant and later in the day got the chance to head to the beach. Meltaway Cafe was the destination for dinner. It’s a cool place with a unique concept which is serving cheese-based food.   3RD DAY   Today we opted to go to the beach early and spent almost the entire day at Palm while grabbing some food at Eduardo’s and Scott’s Brats in between. We didn't leave the beach until 5:30 pm, then headed to dinner with Ann again at this new place called Opus Restaurant. We definitely recommend this place. Their food was awesome and they had an excellent staff. This was followed by a short trip to Marriott Stellaris for some gelato which in our opinion is the best on the island.   4TH DAY   This day was filled with excitement as we headed over to the animal shelter, and ended up choosing 2 kittens to adopt. We named our two new bundles of joy Kiki and Koko. We still need time to work out the adoption process so we can fly them back with us to the U.S. but we’re very looking forward to welcoming them in our family! That’s it for our trip report for part 1, stay tuned for the remaining parts!
