Ahhhhhhruba. That’s how I felt when I got off the plane. I know this might sound funny to some people, but diving trips are hard work! We left Bonaire happy but exhausted — in seven days we did seven dives, went on two snorkeling adventures, took a yoga class, survived a cave tour, drove up to the north of the island, and threw a surprise bachelorette party! All of which is to explain that when we got to Aruba, we had absolutely nothing on the agenda other than hanging out at the Divi Aruba All Inclusive. I’m sure I’ll return to Aruba someday for adventures — but this mini-trip was all about rest and relaxation.
After a three nights in Aruba I returned to New York City with exactly two weeks to go before saying goodbye to the East Coast for the rest of the year. Vacation is officially over, and I’m in lockdown mode while I pack, plan and prepare for my big West Coast adventure. Till next time, here’s Photo of the Week!
Welcome to Aruba!

Gotta end it on this silly selfie with my girls!

Looking for new travel sites to ad to your reading roster? Searching for the perfect gift for the wanderluster in your life? Each month from here forward, I’ll be sharing an inspiring selection of travel blogs, travel projects and travel shops. Not only are these fellow entrepreneurs following their passions and creating beautiful content, they’re also supporting Alex in Wanderland by advertising in my sidebar this month — please support them back by checking out their sites and cheering them along.
Because we decided to start early, I already introduced most of the current bloggers. But, here’s one more Alex in Wanderland featured blogger for August!
This American couple quit their jobs in 2014 to tackle the world, together. After many nomadic adventures, they’ve recently announced plans to head to Mexico with their loyal (and insanely adorable) husky as co-pilot. Norway to Nowhere documents not just their physical journey but also their emotional one.
Why I Love This Blog: Because having a good blog name is the foundation upon which all blog greatness is built — and they have a fantastic one!
