Default Our Aruba 25th anniversary vacation

My wife finished editing the video. It's a little long for some of you but she wanted to capture our vacation for us. We went with some of our great friends we have known for years. This by far was the best time we have ever had. I highly recommend the island. There is so much to do. You just have to go out and do it. The people there are so nice. I hope you enjoy.

Nice video. Looks like its not crowded and laid back. How are prices in general and where would you recommend staying? Thanks.

We loved Aruba! Stayed at the Tamarjin and really enjoyed the whole trip. Would go back for sure. Didn’t watch video because I am listening to a podcast, but will check it out later.

Nice video. Thanks for the view at the top of all those steps to the hilltop. I told my wife no freaking way, it's my vacation too!

We did ATV's to the other side and it was amazing over there. Your video brings back some good memories!

We were on a cruise recently with Aruba as one of the ports.
Loved it and will go back for 7-10 days.

We did the private horse back ride on the other side....
Cruise was Our 25th Anniversary as well!

CONGRATS! You have my deepest Sympathies! :-)

It was bad rough.... solid 5 most of the day and bigger for a short period. I got sick and that's very rare. Felt better after getting sick though.

I saw you guys have a few drinks and I was thinking if I was down there I would be hitting it hard, and I would have been a little hung over and I would have been more than sick once I would have had to jump in !! Aruba is on my list for vacation spot.

All of the music is from one of our favorites. Stick Figure - "Sound of the Sea"

Nice video! We celebrated our 20th there and had a great time. Celebrated our 35th on Bonaire last year. The ABC islands are all great.

Thanks, she likes messing with them. I'm tournament fishing with Sand Key and Abib for the Florida Blue Water series again this summer so look out for new fishing videos.
