Flights, Camera, Action FINALIST

Back in August, I submitted a video to the Flights, Camera, Action contest sponsored by American Airlines. The objective was to talk about a trip that changed your business. Well, it was way back in 1994 that I took my first American Airlines flight to Aruba and that journey changed my business career in the most dramatic way. As it turns out, my video is a finalist in this competition and I humbly ask for your vote to make it a winner. Follow this link, watch my video (for Hawser Press) and VOTE. By voting, you’ll also be eligible for 25,000 frequent flier miles, which is a nice perk.

I hope you enjoyed the video. Thanks for your support and safe travels!

Aruba, The Other Side of the Bridge, Ep. 3

Episode 4 of The Other Side of the Bridge (Aruba) is now available. This time, we head to JoAnn Snack for a nice lunch then meet the crew from Aruba Bob Snorkeling. You’ll head into the water at Mangel Alto and check out the fish, too. Here it is:

As you saw there in the video, plenty of marine life to see. Always wear your life jacket and be careful. (Don’t eat too much either!)

Aruba, OSB, Episode 2

Time for another episode of Aruba, The Other Side of the Bridge. In Episode 2, you’ll head to San Nicolaas for a look at The New Pueblito Paisa restaurant and the “lomito” platter. Then we’ll swing over to Charlie’s Bar for a few fascinating details. Here’s the video:

Those are two great joints to enjoy some good food, company, and drinks. Check them out next time you’re on the island. More videos on the way!

Aruba, OSB, Episode 1

Today, I uploaded the first of several new videos made in Aruba. These are part of a series I call “The Other Side of the Bridge,” which is more a sensibility than a location. There’s plenty of things to see, do, and enjoy that are not located within Aruba’s highly developed tourist zone. Hence, these videos will show you local restaurants, activities, and sights that are worth checking out. Here’s Episode 1:

You can subscribe here to The Bent Page or my YouTube channel, lenswork4, in order to get regular updates like this from Aruba and around the world. Please remember, the local joints change hours and days of operation, which may affect your schedule. Be flexible for maximum enjoyment. Directions to many of places you see on the other side of the bridge can be found under the category “Aruba Driving Directions.” Bon dia.
