Curacao

Location, location, location!

Isn’t that what they always say is important, especially in real estate.  Well, we didn’t purchase any real estate of our own on the little island of Curacao, but boy did we have a fabulous location. Since Curaçao is still relatively unknown in the great ole’ US of A I thought I would try to acquaint you.

You can see the inside scoop on where we lived while we were on the island here.

While we were there I chronicled a little bit of island life in a series called “foto friday”. You can follow that series (which also includes a lot of vacation photos from trips we took to places like Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Argentina while were living down there) here.

In the mean time, here are a few of my favorite pics we captured while we were living there. Enjoy!

    You’re a brave one. I live in Barranquilla, Colombia and the word here is that Curacao is…well beautiful…but not nice. My friends think I’m crazy for living here…but this grandma has to be close to the babies.

      That is so funny … we’d think you’re the brave one living in Colombia. But, we actually visited and LOVED every part of it, lovely scenery and lovely people! If you ever head to Curacao, give me a shout!! :)

  25. Stunning! I could definitely wake up to that every day!

    We will be spending a day in Curacao in 2 weeks while on our Caribbean cruise. I would love to hear recommendations on what to do. We would like to dive and then explore the city.

Let me know what you think!
