DUSHI…

Curacao, the island where my roots are and where I spent most of my childhood summer vacations. It’s literally my second home. Due to the constant warm weather you can visit the island throughout the whole year. It’s only a nine-hour flight from Amsterdam to this Paradise island. Want to see my favourite hot spots? I bet you’d want to start packing!

Bon Bini! (Welcome!) The colourful houses of Punda. Just looking at them makes me happy.

IMG_0380Let’s start with a little tour around town. First stop, The Renaissance Mall with shops like Furla, Mango and Starbucks.

The Emma bridge, the only wooden floating and rotating bridge in the world. And the connection between Punda and Otrobanda.

To do list:

-lunch at Plasa Bieuw and get to know the Antillean cuisine.

-make a boat trip to Klein Curacao, a small deserted Island south-east of Curacao. A divers paradise.

-visit the beaches Cas Abou, PortoMarie and Grote Knip.

-visit the Christoffelpark, Curacao’s national park and see beautiful flora and fauna.

-nightlife! Visit the open-air club Bermuda or have dindins and dance salsa at Asia de Cuba. Mundo Bizarro, a restaurant with a crazy beautiful interior.

-do rent a car, the taxi prices are very high.

Ayo!

Love, Mishanou
