Today I left Curaçao to fly to Aruba and after Aruba I will fly to Bonaire. So When I get back home again I will have seen three of the six Dutch tropical islands.
Who ever said it always rains and it is cold in the Netherlands was not paying attention ;-)
Although I have only seen Curaçao I must say I am positively surprised. There is much more to see and do on the island than what I thought could be found. I thought Curaçao was like Aruba, all beach with only one difference a very beautiful capital; Willemstad. Willemstad is really worth a visit, it historic centre is well preserved and the look of the old Dutch houses in these bright colors is absolutely wonderful.
But there is a load more to Curaçao. But do not take a normal East-West tour, ask a cab driver to show you all the beautiful places of the island, because you get to see much more wonderful places in a much shorter time and the
good part is you can get out of the car when ever you want. The tour busses only stop a few times and not always at the best places.
If you are lucky like me and have a friend on the island ask her or him to show you Curaçao. I am sure you are amazed just like I was.
But internet is slow in many places so always save your work before uploading it to your site or blog
