For many people and Yankee Magazine, Mud Season in Vermont conjures up thoughts of miserably cold, rainy, and yucky thawing of ice and snow with mud rutted roads, frost heaves, and bare trees throughout the landscape. All true, unless you are owners of a Romantic Vermont B&B, Inn Victoria…the owners travel to ARUBA for a different scene and relaxation.
A part of the ABC islands just off the north coast of Venezuela, the Islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are all a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Sheltered from the Caribbean rain storms and hurricanes, it rarely rains in aruba, and the sun shines constantly providing a consistent 80-96 degrees fahrenheit with cool breezes.
“We love relaxing here”, says; Penny Cote, owner of Inn Victoria. Most of the people on the Island are Christians with a deep love for God. They all take “hospitality” classes in High School, adding credibility to their well marketed phrase “one happy island”! Thats right, each Aruban citizen is taught how to great and serve foreigners. Much like Vermont, Tourism is their greatest means of income and Hospitality is their greatest export.”
