Luggage Scale | Magellan's Travel Supplies

Aruba Bound
Easy-Grip Luggage Scale

Tired off standing on your home scale without and then with your suitcase to determine how much it weighs?

We have had a luggage scale for years and would not fly anywhere without it. You only have to rearrange your open suitcases on the floor of the airport at check-in once, to realize how much you need one of these scales. With the holidays coming, they make great stocking stuffers. Dh and I have also bought them as Christmas gifts for other family members who are frequent fliers.

Aruba and Artificial Reefs

There are a Variety of Environmental and Human Reasons for the Creation of Artificial Reefs

August 19th, 2010

"First of all, an artificial reef is any type of reef project, foreign object(s) or reef systems, which is not an original coral formation or natural coral ecosystem. These are usually made by humans for specific purpose such as promoting marine life growth or creating areas of marine growth where this is lacking or has been destroyed. Artificial reefs can also be created accidentally by sunken ships, aircrafts or due to flooding. Many man-made artificial reefs are created with a purpose, while others become an artificial reef by “accident” or because of history.
