52 Weeks Of Me Challenge
A Picture Of Somewhere You Have Been
The second I read this weeks prompt I knew there was only on place I could feature: Aruba! I have been to Aruba twice. The first time I went was in 2007, with my dance team; we hosted a summer camp there and taught summer camp classes to a group of children. The second time I went was my honeymoon in 2011. These pictures are from when I was there on my honeymoon.
There is just something about Aruba that I love. It’s a very small island, and therefore very easy to get around. Granted, when we got married neither of us were able to rent a car. So, maybe not as easy for us when we were there. Haha. It is very “Americanized.” If you’re trying to get a big culture shock it might not be the best place for you. However, there are definitely little places that you can get a feel of something non-American. It’s absolutely breath taking – the water is gorgeous and the weather is amazing!
Aruba is beautiful. However, with that said… the first time I went to Aruba I definitely wasn’t expecting so many different types of terrain. There are beaches, grassy areas, along with desert-like areas. They even have cactus (as if you couldn’t tell from the above picture)!
Long story short, it’s gorgeous… since I’m sure you haven’t gathered that from me saying it 100 times or the pictures! We stayed at the Radisson on Palm Beach and loved how close it was to everything! These pictures don’t do it justice, but it’s amazing! I plan to do a future post on our wedding and honeymoon, where I’ll talk more details about Aruba.
I would love to see pictures of somewhere you have been as well! If you have Instagram pictures of somewhere you have been feel free to leave it in the comments and I’ll have a look! If you don’t have pictures I’d love to hear of where you have been in the comments.
