We’re Off On Another Mystery Trip….And It Should Be Very Good!

Tonight Joanna and I will be flying out of London Heathrow for 11 nights on a trip that Joanna knows very little about.

I did something similar for Joanna last year as a "thank you" for putting up with the hours I work and the numerous trips I take throughout the year...but this year I think I've done better.

Going Local In Aruba: Balashi & Bugaloe
