We flew from Cartagena via Bogotá to Aruba. Here we rented an amazing Airbnb studio for the week. From there, we discovered the island by car. Lots to see above water, and surprisingly also below! We snorkeled twice to a ship wreck from the Second World War, and the ship and its corals & fish were amazing.

That’s it. The week flew by. Now onto Bonaire for almost a week to go diving!
