When we arrived at our hotel and started to look for somewhere to eat, we realized that this would not be a normal Claire and Bogart adventure...unless we forced it.
"Can you recommend a good, authentic Aruban restaurant?"
"Do you like ribs? We have this great rib place called Tony Roma's just down the street."
Really? Tony Roma's? That is the best Aruba had to offer me? This might take a bit of adjustment. See, Claire and I are adventurous travelers. We like to eat at the little hole-in-the-wall place that no tourist would ever go to. We like to walk all over. We like to explore.
Aruba was like one very large cruise ship.
Don't get me wrong, we had a great time. The Honeymoon rocked and we will never forget the trip, but it was not our usual travel pick.
Will we go back? I am sure we will...when we have kids or when we go with a big group of friends. If it is just Claire and me, we will probably stick to areas that allow us to get a little more culture and adventurous eating.
Monday, I have a story about a romantic hidden beach...well, actually two hidden beaches.
