2 more days and a wake up.
Hope the weather there gets better. Need some sun.
We have never had a full day of rain in 13 trips. Shoot, weve never had 2 hours of rain in 13 trips.
Leaving Sunday AM. Will be there for 12 days. Our anniversary is on the 9th.
Will try to send in some reports.

uhm... maybe,

honestly, this is the second countdown thread we had. you see how many posts are in it. some people start their countdown the moment they return from a trip. i still have 300+ days but i am already counting. let's see what you do on your return.

Soooooooooo, what do you think of the island so far?

I went for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. My husband who's roots are in New England and does not like to leave his comfort zone loved the island. We are heading there again in 11 days and a wake up. Yes 11 and can't wait.

Please update us on your thoughts!

pete, that's all we ask, frankness and honesty. we would love you to post about the island, restaurant reviews, and anything else you think is important. if you are taking a laptop, you can also post daily as some of us do. we have a section labeled 'trip reports' where you can easily combine it all in a full thread.

Staying at the Tamarijn. Not much of a snorkler to be honest but reading reports of swarms of marauding mosquitoes, under water may be the safest place. Trust me, 25 st of wobbling white English flesh will be like an eat-all-you-can buffet. The mosquitoes will be licking their lips and polishing their stingers in anticipation.

bring along some 'off' or its brit equivalent. 'off' has easy to carry wipes that we use when needed. as soon as the rain stops, which it has at the moment, the mosquitoes will go into hibernation and the attacks will fade.

you may want to try some easy snorkeling. or a snorkel cruise. they are great and you are not obligated to spend hours in the water or for that matter to even get in the water on the cruises. you can sit on the catamarans and tan.

speaking of which, the most important thing in your luggage is sunscreen. you are not far from the equator and your wobbling white english flesh needs to have at least a 45 spf to start or you will have a very painful 14 days.

Thanks again Sherry,
Got some SPF 50 to start with (it's like paint) and some SPF 30 for the second week. Hopefully that should be OK. Don't expose too much skin anyway as a rule.
Only 2 days now.........................

We typically don't experience a mosquito problem (we usually go in March); I'm sure the recent bug issue was due to the rare stretch of rains they had.

Have a great time Pete - we look forward to hearing ALL about it.

Wink Re: let's do a countdown part 2

The countdown continues:-
4 hours 30 mins until take-off.
Then just a small matter of 10 hours sat in a metal tube on a seat that is too small for me. Can't wait ;-)

About 27 days until Aruba for us (Nov. 14). I don't understand why I become so "stressed" anticipating our trip! Once we're there though, it feels so natural & relaxed, LOL.
I guess a couple glasses of Chardonnay each night before departure eases the stress, ya think? Works for me

I know what you mean - I get kind of stressed too. For me, it's about all the things you have to take care of before you leave, etc. - I know it should be a labor of love but I just hate all the little details. I just want to BE there already.

119 more days for me. I'm almost down to double digits. I hope to see Elaine and Mary. We're going in Feb. this year. And hopefully, we can take Kent up on an offer to go snorkeling. Time is creeping by, slowly, but surely.

I Love Aruba Re: let's do a countdown part 2

rick - safe travels and have a wonderful time.

Manzita - time's almost here for you, too.

Bobbie - I look forward to seeing you. Hope we're able to do dinner again.

My biggest stress prior to leaving is my job. There's so much to do, and things that I need to explain to the bossman since I'm the only one who does the job I do. The stress is compounded when I see an email from him while I'm in paradise... that means only one thing; I need to do something for work. Every year I say I won't do it, but I cave!

I find packing pretty funny 'cause I play that "in the suitcase, out of the suitcase" game. And, the details at home aren't too bad now with online banking.

I play that same packing game. You really made me laugh last trip with your car cover issue. Might have actually been the best time I ever had packing lol. Whatever last minute packing surprises come up on this next trip, let's make sure it's smaller than a breadbox. Let's see, I have my chair cushion from last year in storage already. I think I'm bringing a small fan with me this time. Can run on batteries if necessary. Other than that, I don't have any large items -------- so far. And I'm in the 130s. All I can say about that is that it's better than the 180s when I started my ticker.

Bobbie, it will be great seeing you-----hopefully we will have lots of meetings (perhaps under our chickees at ABC----it the chickees are still there). It'll be great if you are there when Dan and Georgene are there also. We always have fun with them.

I know this is easier said than done, but like they say on the streets, "just say no" lol And if you're wimpy like me and don't know how to say no, just ship it - it's really not as expensive as you might think. I found that out last year......

99 days - good for you Elaine. That's what, 14 weeks? And still 3 holidays. We've been saying 3 holidays for a long time now. I'm about a month longer than you, and am really looking forward to double-digits. Definite milestone.

YAY,
Only 33 more days, and technically no holidays since we're flying over on Turkey Day! Come on Thanksgiving!

Tere... I like your count better then mine, BUT I'm grateful I HAVE a count! arty:

ruba - I can't wait to be woo hooing!

Ro - it always amazes me how quickly the months fly by! It doesn't seem that long ago seeing 300+ days, and feeling like the time will NEVER get here.

Tere - Yeah, I'd KILL for 33 days. Though it definitely helps to live vicariously everyone else's counts.

Ruba - I have also added the weekly countdown to my holiday count. At least that changes more often - feels like you're making progress.

Elaine - Seems like I'm getting more excited just 'cause the temps have gotten chilly. We're getting there. Baby steps, baby steps......

Although this is not a countdown for Aruba, we just have a wakeup and we're off to New Hampshire for a long weekend. And boy do we need it - last time we went anywhere (even for an overnight) was last March. By tomorrow afternoon we will be in a rustic cabin facing Mount Washington. And we get to see our closest friends who now live in Ohio - same friends we vacation with in Aruba. No matter how long or short a trip we're going on, I always forget how much I really hate packing. Wears me out entirely. You would think this should be easy since it's only 5 days, but there's no electricity or running water so it's a whole different kind of packing. Like camping with walls. But it's always worth it in the end. Now that I've finally got my feet up, I'm all excited....

Happy Halloween everybody. Boo!

Boo back at you Ro. Isn't it just incredible that we all are so anxious to wish our lives away in order for time to fly by so we can be back on that little piece of land we all call "paradise"? Amazing!! But it is what we do.
We are down to 38 days and we will be there kicking back for our Dec. trip.
I can't wait and it isn't even cold here yet!!
