“After we became a couple, she composed our time together. She planned days as if they were artistic events. One afternoon we went to Tybee Island for a picnic; we ate blueberries and drank champagne tinted with curacao and listened to Miles Davis, and when I asked the name of her perfume, she said it was L’Heure Bleue.
She talked about ‘perfect moments.’ One such moment happened that afternoon; she’d been napping; I lay next to her, reading. She said, ‘I’ll always remember the sounds of the sea and of pages turning, and the smell of L’Heure Bleue. For me they signify love.”
What is so unique of Curaçao? Authenticity. For centuries there is a rich, hospitable and a vibrant culture. The heritage is partly European and partly African and the island has more than 50 nationalities.
Besides he native language, Papiamentu, Dutch, English and Spanish is spoken. A visit to Willemstad brings together old and new cultures.
Curacao North Sea Jazz
The architecture of this vibrant seaport town, the activities and the vibrant neighborhoods form the historic center of the island.
The greatest thing about exploring Curaçao is that you get the feeling that not everything has been discovered.
The island is one of the “ABC islands” – Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao – and a piece of untouched paradise. Relax and feel yourself at home between the working, playing and enjoying inhabitants.
The island also offers the visitors exclusive beaches, spectacular dive sites, distinctive architecture, and activities and adventures for everyone.
In the week preceding Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, the island will submerge itself in jazz, soul, latin, hip hop and r & b, all with a Caribbean touch.
Don’t forget …
During the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, one thing is for sure; the Caribbean will swing!
