Travel Clips: The Caribbean Island of Curacao

Last summer was a lucky season. Many days were spent soaking up in the sun in the Caribbean, bounding around from island to island. I loved not only the party scene, but the amazing colors discovered during the day, especially in the capital city of Willemstad. It’s certainly one of my favorites in the Caribbean for it’s friendliness, hearty food and laid-back beaches. The best part was sipping fruity cocktails while watching the Queen Emma pontoon bridge move! You can’t quite make them out in the clip, but people just hang out on the bridge while it moves out of the way for boats, like they don’t have a care in the world. I could get used to that relaxed kind of lifestyle. Enjoy!

Someday I really wold love to go back. I’ve been dreaming a lot about the beautiful islands lately as I sit here with a wool hat pulled down over my cold ears in dreary London. The two worlds could not be any more different!
