Aruba is a beautiful island in the Caribbean – loaded with super dreamy sandy beaches. But instead of the classic “we are all happy shiny bloggers” selfies from the beach – I tried to find other interesting backdrops for an editorial. And after that it’s best to enjoy an Aruba Ariba (a special cocktail) at a local bar.

Especially the town of San Nicolaas is full of great backdrops – colorful murals by international and local artists. And the city is completely empty at noon – maybe also because it’s super freaking hot.
