Last summer I got to go to Aruba as a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding (I also had a quick pitstop in Miami to see my boyfriend’s sister)! It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen! Nothing but clear turquoise waters and white sands and palm trees. I had such a blast snorkeling and parasailing and stand up paddling with my mom and cousins. The whole week was a dream, and I’m still daydreaming about it. Here are some #tbt pictures from one of the best vacations ever!
If you’re traveling to Aruba in the near future, I would highly recommend Driftwood, which is a local’s favorite. If you like fresh-caught seafood, you’re in for a treat! It’s tucked away in a back alley, behind a bunch of fancy shops, so it’s easy to miss! I think this is Aruba’s best kept secret, and I hope I can go back one day to eat there again. I also just realized I probably ruined the best kept secret by putting it on the internet. oops.
Thanks for daydreaming with me :)
PS, if you’re wearing a lace or crocheted-back bikini (like mine from L Space), make sure you use sunscreen unless you’d like that pattern seared into your skin…. I learned the hard way.
