Amongst the places I have visited lately, Aruba stands out through its warm and welcoming people. Even before setting foot on the island, I had made friends through introductions. People I had never met looked forward to my visit, and told me so. I spent much time on the island with one of those new friends, exploring. Some of our adventures, such as the sunrise hike to the Natural Pool, were new for her, too. Here's to new friends in new destinations–because that's what travel is all about.
