Disclosure: This is a collaborative post with the Aruba Tourism Authority UK, but the words and opinions below are my own.
Where will you be heading this summer? If you are anything like me, you have already made up your mind. If you are still struggling to pick a destination, you might want to consider adding Aruba to your list of dream destinations. You could even win a trip there. Best be quick!
The Caribbean is a popular destination among travellers across the globe and the islands are now becoming increasingly more accessible. I have been to the Caribbean Islands myself on two occasions, once to visit the Dominican Republic and again when we went to Jamaica. But I had never heard of the little Dutch island known as Aruba.
So when the Aruba Tourism Authority asked me to help promote Aruba and its cuisine, I have to admit that I got rather excited. Visions of blue skies and white sands danced before my eyes… That is until I realised I wasn’t going to be flying off to the Caribbean. Instead I was lucky enough to receive a hamper with a selection of Caribbean foods and drinks to give me a taste of Aruba.
Aruba will have to wait for another year. For now, I shall dream of beaches on a remote Caribbean Islands and sample the various Caribbean Goodies packed into my hamper.
Perhaps you are planning a trip to Aruba or maybe you are simply surfing the net for some travel inspiration. Either way, I’ve got you covered! Here is an introduction to Aruba for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Island and 10 Foodie Spots not to miss on your next trip!
