During my 2015 holiday break I went to Aruba with my parents with a following trop to Istanbul to spend New Year’s with my friends. Although very hot, Aruba was gorgeous and I loved the soft warm sand beneath my feet and the exotic fruits and foods I got to taste while there. Afterwards, getting to enter 2015 with my best friends since first grade was amazing. The shift from tropical to heavy snow was overwhelming yet I loved going to both places.
