And as The Scary One likes to remind me she has sailed the world, and drunk in Blue blue Curacao in the Caribbean.
In a lyrical sense, she was only seven.
We’ve made up for that since when I’ve turned cocktail waiter for my Saturday night Jocktails.
Drink it in
And Blue blue Curacao is my entry point for the Caribbean island.
Through a Mai Tai, a Blue Lagoon or a Blue Hawaian.
All of which will be on order at your pool bar at my first entry point to the Caribbean – Sandals.
The all new Sandals Royal Curacao is offering a 45% saving on all room categories for travel from April 12.
You want to get out around the island.
Well, you can pedal around on a Dutch bike (without the Amsterdam canalside shouts of BIKE).
Curacao is one of the Dutch Leeward Islands.
Dutch of class
If bikes are too much energy in the 84 degrees heat then Sandals will give you your own comp Mini Cooper.
For those staying. In the Kurason Island Suites and Awa Seaside Bungalows.
Every Caribbean island is unique.
Whether it’s Rihanna’s Barbados and its Crop Over carnival.
And Curacao in the Dutch Antilles is no exception.
Capital Wilemstad is known for its colonial pastel-coloured architecture.
While where else would you get a floating bridge, the Queen Emma bridge?
Or a sand-floored synagogue, the 17th Century Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue?
Of course the Caribbean has some of the best coral anywhere so for those of you who can hold your breath under water…
You’ll get a warm welcome all across the Caribbean.
But only in Curacao will you get a Bon Bini at the airport which is Papiamento, the islanders’ language.
Welcome, welcome, welcome
Which is a mixture of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French, English, African and Arawak Indian.
No polyglot me but I expect Mai Tai will get me by.
And a Blue blue Curacao speaks for itself.
