Aruba!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I posted. My personal life has been super rocky lately, so I never had motivation to post anything. But here I am! I’ve started journaling which I hope will help me with blogging.


Back at the end of May, my friends and I decided to make a trip to Aruba, One Happy Island! It was such an amazing trip. We went there for 10 days, which honestly wasn’t enough. I definitely would’ve enjoyed a whole month there. I learned that every native Aruban there speaks four languages! In elementary school, they learn Dutch. Then in middle school, they learn Spanish. From birth, they speak Papiamento (which used to be a dialect, but is now considered an actual language). And they learn English in school also! It’s incredible.

While we were out exploring the island, we met these two guys that are famous in Aruba. They’re a singing and rapping duo, with their songs in Papiamento. Their songs are on the radio out there, and on Spotify. They even have people go up to them on the street to ask them for a picture! They’re known as Wichi & Ty on Youtube and Spotify. They even have some features on Apple Music if you guys want to check them out!
I’m super glad we ran into them because they were super nice and friendly. They even hung out with us a few days and showed us around the island!

I’m saving up to go to Aruba again, it was definitely my happy place.

Until next time! ♥

    1. Thank you! I wish I was able to put up a lot more, I have tons from the trip! And honestly, same. It’s a struggle to even learn my parents’ mother tongue. 😭

  1. I think motivation is one of those things that is hard to keep, and sometimes when you skip doing something then time moves so fast you have to wonder where it went. I really like that first picture, it reminds me of a picture from an old film camera. Interesting how the culture is different there because I could never imagine a celebrity doing that in the US.

    1. Yes! That’s exactly how I feel!
      And thank you! I edited the photo on an app called Huji. It does random light effects and has the dates on it like an old film camera.

  2. Wow such a great trip! I’ve never been there so now I want to! And 4 languages is incredible, but when you are a child you can do incredible things with the brain memory!

  3. Wow, I can’t believe it has been a year since you last blogged. Aruba looks amazing! Glad you had so much fun there, especially with you getting away for 10 days. Pretty cool that they are diverse in languages. I need to give this place a visit one day! Thanks for sharing your experience.

    1. I know, I can’t believe it either. I’m hoping to be more active now though! Going on lots of new adventures~
      Please do! I think Aruba’s definitely one of those places where people should visit if they ever get a chance to.

  4. I didn’t actually know anything about Arbua before this post and I’ve just been Googleing it to understand where it actually is haha. It looks like a great time, and these photographs are stunning.

    Have a great weekend

  5. Loving these photos and welcome back to the blogosphere! 4 languages – that is crazy! I can barely speak English, haha. My mum can speak 2 languages and 2 dialects and she neglected to teach me any 😒 Haha. I’m glad you had a fun time in Aruba!

  6. OMG girl this post was awesome! Makes me want to travel more, and you look so pretty. The photos are stunning. It looks like you had fun! I need more sun and fun in my life lol
