When:October 2018 Where:Aruba Source:https://www.visitaruba.com/things-to-do/aru… This month-long event throughout October highlights authentic Aruban cuisine. The restaurants’ prix-fixe menus allow visitors to enjoy local cuisine for a very reasonable price, with lunches costing $15 and dinners $30 - $40. No passes, tickets or vouchers are required— attending diners can simply visit their favorite participating restaurants throughout the program dates to enjoy the special menu offerings.

Following last year’s very successful Al Fresco Fund Raising Dinner, the students of EPI HORECA and the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management Studies (FHTMS) are again under the initiative and guidance of Marin Bijl and the Food and Beverage staff of Divi and Tamarijn All Inclusive Resort along with new participating partners, preparing another wonderful evening for the Aruban community.
This event will be slightly different. Instead of the five-course paired dinner, there will be taster stations, introducing the guest to the delicate tastes of a variety of global culinary regions. The foods will be paired with an assortment of wines and other beverages that will titillate the taste buds.

For the ones that like to practice for their future "Camino to Santiago" or just love walking long distances with others, I have scheduled 4 Camino Walks early Saturday mornings from 6 – 9 am. We will be walking approximately 10 – 15 km’s.
In 2015, I walked the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela in 40 days and averagely 22 km’s per day. In 2017, I walked via the Camino Norte and Camino Primitivo to Santiago de Compostela. And I just returned from Spain where I walked from Leon to Santiago in 13 days. I love to share some of my best practices on the Camino whilst walking.
And it is also fun to practice together, share some pilgrim stories and have some meaningful conversations and grow our nature awareness together. Most of the time, I also share a nature-based tool that helps you discover more about yourself.
What to expect? These Camino walks are hikes mainly in nature with some climbs and approximately 10 – 15 km’s. Please bring a backpack with a snack, sufficient water, and wear good hiking boots.

As a youngster Marco always had an interest in electronic music. Names like Secret Cinema, Joey Beltram and DJ Rush were giving him a sensation he never felt. Around the age of 13 he wanted to spin some records himself and create magic behind, what used to be, the wheels of steel. This interest became so big that he would literally stand inside the dj booth at local club Bassline to find out what it's all about. Not much later, he and his mate Damy, also known as D.M.Y, bought their first pioneers. At the same time Marco's taste developed, as he listens to names like DJ Rush, Oliver Kucera, Dax J, Ben Sims and Stranger.
In 2012, Marco's talent has been noticed, which resulted in several bookings including Strobe, Boothstock Festival, Toffler Festival and HEY!. He shared the stage with artist like Michel de Hey, Dave Clarke, DJ Rush, ROD and Slam.
Checkout his latest sets and not only hear, but feel his funky and massive sound.
With a fresh organisation Scherpe Randjes, Marco's throwing small intimate techno parties with all the talented guys out there.
