One Happy Podcast

Joining me for  Episode 85 of One Happy Podcast is long time Aruba visitor Donna Dubrink.  How long has Donna been visiting Aruba?  She has been visiting for 24 years and still loves the island just as much as she did the first time.


Recently Donna was in Aruba staying at her beloved Playa Linda Timeshare and was nice enough to stop by to talk about it.  Now, just because Donna stays at a resort on a prime location on Palm Beach don’t think she only stays around the resort.  Donna is an explorer at heart.  This love for exploration has led her to discover countless nooks and crannies around the island.


So, on this episode of the show Donna takes us back 24 years to when she first stepped off the plane onto the tarmac of the airport.  Over that time she has experienced many different accommodations but the Playa Linda is home, and also the place where her most recent trip is centered.   We talk about that trip and how someone who has been visiting Aruba for more than 2 decades still finds a way to enjoy the island and discover new aspects of it.
