the beach series

This is Fuikbaai, an inlet on the East side of Curacao. I recently wrote a piece about Fuik which will soon be published in the new book Banda Ariba by Divas Publishing. I will keep you up to date on when the book will be available and where it can be purchased.

These are pictures I've taken throughout the years. It is a bay where the colour of the water is constantly changing, where the mangroves are always beautifully green and where there is usually a turtle nearby.

the beach series

Curacao has about 38 beaches. Some are tiny coves only accessible if you hike there, others are popular weekend destinations for tourists and locals alike and one is located of the main island on what is called Klein Curacao.

One of my favourite aspects of living on the island is going on the boat to a beach every weekend. It is an absolute luxury. One that I missed terrible while living abroad and now thoroughly enjoy and appreciate every time we go out on the water.

The beaches are something we all share. Each of them unique in their own way. Some of them a famous dive spots, others deserted and quiet. Each week I will take you to another beach. Hopefully reaching all 38 - if indeed I can find them all.

Today just a few photos to get you started.

neuhaus

Last week friends of ours returned from a trip to Belgium and brought us a box of Neuhaus chocolates. Each piece of this chocolate is simply divine. Combined with a tiny cup of Lavazza espresso and it is the perfect afternoon combo.
