I recently got the assignment of a LIFE TIME: travel to Aruba, and do a series of stories on why it’s a great place to vacation.

Needless to say, I accepted!

This first night was dedicated to dining.

The next day we hit the links for golf, Aruba style. Oliver, the golf pro, explains that they have consistent sunshine 365 days a year, so there are “no bad days”.

What child hasn’t dreamed of floating away on the string of their balloon?

Well for me it took 75 balloons and the work of some very creative Disney engineers.

But the result was magical!
