Just back from an amazing trip to Aruba! We stayed on Eagle Beach at a gorgeous hotel right on the beach! (The number 3rd best beach in the world no less! Sorry am i rubbing it in!). The hotel has lovely gardens, great food, a spa, hammocks and palm trees galore, and the friendliest people ever, not just at the hotel. The pool was gorgeous and even had Iguanas walking about, i was fascinated by them and was up and down like a yoyo trying to get good photos (there`s a great one in my collage if i do say so myself!). There like mini dinosaurs!
The best day ever was when we were lucky enough to get tickets to go to the Renaissance Island to walk amongst and feed flamingos! A dream come true for me and something i will never forget! They just sauntered about whilst you were laying on your sunbed!. They are so graceful and beautiful.
We went on these Trike type things, like a motorbike at the front, but 2 wheels at the back and a nice comfy seat at the back for me. The tour took us round the island for 3 hours stopping at various points of interest like the California Lighthouse, Casibari Rock, Arashi Beach and the Alto Vista Church.
Another fun excursion was going on Atlantis the submarine! We saw plenty of fish, a ship wreck and even touched the ocean floor in the submarine, very cool!
We did a Catamaran and snorkelling trip too, it was nice being on the boat with the fab scenery, but the water was far to choppy for me to be able to snorkel properly!.
If you get the chance to go to Aruba go! Great all year round climate and a constant breeze which is nice, great food, beaches to die for, flamingos, giant cacti everywhere and very friendly people!
