Curaçao, laidback and dushi

When I told friends and family my boyfriend and I would be visiting Curaçao during the Memorial Day holiday, the first question I got was "where is that?" Curaçao may be a little-known gem of the Caribbean compared to countries such as Jamaica and Bahamas, but what a great secret to uncover. With a population of about 160,000, this is one of the most unique countries in the Caribbean or the world for that matter, I’ve ever visited.

THE LIVELY TOWN OF WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO

27 July 2019 | 01:40 PM Europe/Amsterdam The capital of Curaçao is steeped in history, one that dates back to 1634, when the Dutch took control from the Spanish and set up the island as a trade settlement. Today, the past is still present in the form of stunning architectural details that nod to Holland and narrow lanes that meander through the city center.

20 July 2019 | 09:05 PM Europe/Amsterdam Looking for unique, street art, and 3D visuals in the Downtown core of Curacao, known as Punda, was like a hidden treasure hunt. In no other place, did I see sunflowers shoot out from the wall, parrots look so lifelike they could almost sit on my shoulder, or #Pundawings that made me “look” angelic. The island of Curacao is a colourful feast for the eyes. The city centre of Punda is at the heart of it. With artistic expressions of street art that takes on an authentic Caribbean vibe, Punda is alive with hidden treasures one can search for without a map. I got lost in a maze narrow streets with wall art as my guide. The locals would refer to the wallart as a reference point for street directions and shout out, “Did you walk past the parrots?” “Did you see the...
