Hey there! I'm Alanna O'Connor, and my journey with Aruba began unexpectedly, thanks to a chance encounter with a fellow traveler named Steven during a spontaneous trip to Mexico with my boyfriend.


Steven, a New Yorker with an impressive 17 trips to Aruba under his belt, regaled us with tales of the island's unparalleled beauty, safety, and warm hospitality.  His enthusiasm was contagious, and his suggestion to venture out and explore Aruba on our own by renting an Airbnb and a car struck a chord with us.


Inspired by Steven's glowing recommendations, we wasted no time in planning our first trip to Aruba in July 2022—and it was nothing short of magical.  From the moment we stepped foot on the island, we were captivated by its pristine beaches, charming locals, and mouthwatering cuisine.


Since that fateful trip, Aruba has become our home away from home. Renting an Airbnb and a car has become our preferred way of experiencing the island, giving us the freedom to cook, relax, and explore at our own pace.  Sure, doing laundry and grocery shopping might require a bit more effort, but the savings allow us to visit Aruba more frequently—and that's a trade-off we're more than happy to make.


But what truly sets Aruba apart is its people.  From our gracious Airbnb hosts to the friendly faces we encounter at local spots, the sense of community and warmth is palpable wherever we go.  Aruba has a way of welcoming you with open arms and making you feel right at home.


For me, Aruba isn't just a destination—it's a sanctuary for the soul.  It's where I find peace, joy, and a sense of belonging.  It's where every visit feels like a homecoming, and every goodbye is bittersweet.  Aruba truly lives up to its moniker as "One Happy Island."


So here's to sharing the love for Aruba and giving this incredible island the attention it deserves.  Join me on this journey as we celebrate the beauty, the culture, and the magic of Aruba together.  After all, there's no place quite like it.


Welcome to my happy place. Welcome to Aruba. 🌴☀️🌊
