My trip to Aruba this past summer was nothing short of incredible. If you missed it, check out my experience at Flamingo Beach – the photos alone are worth the click!
So, instead of writing a bunch of text explaining my trip, I thought a photo essay would be most appropriate given that at every turn Aruba was just stunning. Talk about photo opps! 😍 So, take a peak at my trip below – from behind the lens! 📷 Enjoy!
This time last month, I was packing up my stuff, getting ready to head back to Boston after another amazing mother/daughter trip. My mom and I started this thing a few years ago, where we take a trip together some time in August (towards the end of summer to savor every last moment!) and this year we decided to head to the Caribbean – our happy place.
When I visit a new city I like to experience it like the locals do. Rarely do I opt to visit/experience a tourist attraction, frankly because I know it’s just that! I’d much rather walk like the locals, talk like the locals and play like the locals – it’s way more fun.
A couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend Michele about how much I wanted to do a “staycation”. You know, where you pretend you’re on a mini vacation by renting a hotel room and hitting the town like a tourist in your own city. Seriously, how fun!?
My work has taken me to some really amazing places – all here in the U.S. (so far!) – and all very cool and unique in their own right. In fact, I was taken to some places that I probably wouldn’t have ever explored, had I not been “forced” to go for work. So for that, I’m thankful. But what’s really been cool about being able to travel so much is that I’ve learned that traveling by myself is actually a lot of fun. And rewarding at the same time!
