Ooh, I wanna take ya....

I've had enough of winter. Truly. We got 6 more inches of snow on Sunday. I don't think the snow in my yard will go away until April. I've had a great time skiing this year, but the snow belongs in the mountains, not piled up in front of my garage.

So...itching for warmer weather made me start poking into warm tropical getaways. I used to travel nonstop for work, so I've got about a gazillion hotel points and 10 gazillion frequent flyer miles. After some research and discussion with the spousal unit, the decision was made. At the beginning of March, we're off to Aruba.

Here's a pic of a divi divi tree for ya.

Anybody been there? Would love to hear about it.

Also, can somebody please tell me where in the hell Kokomo is? I'm pretty sure the Beach Boys weren't singing about the town in Indiana.

My parents went to Aruba a few years ago and loved it.

I'm going to Jamaica.

I hope that doesn't mean it's great for old folks (no offense to your parents ;).

I've been to Jamaica. Wonderful place. I don't recommend trying to drive. And I challenge you to find a bad cup of coffee. We looked into going there instead of Aruba but hotel options weren't good.

I haven't been to Aruba but I've heard nothing but good things. I'm sure you'll have a great time!

I've been to Jamaica twice. I may go back this year. I love it.

I've been to Ja over 10 times they call me Jamerican.

When do you plan on going? Want to stay at our villa?

As for Aruba, my parents are pretty hip. They know how to travel and party.

Cat - I don't know how you found that place, but it looks fabulous. A cook and a housekeeper - what more could you ask for? When are you going? We've already booked the Aruba flights, leaving March 7th.

Hope to be like your parents. :)

We are going in April. I found the place a bunch of years ago when a buddy of mine, who was also pres of the company I worked for insisted a bunch of us go.

It's a great vacation spot and I've stayed at many of the villas.

I'm sure you'll love Aruba.
