For 91 Days,
we called the tiny Caribbean nation of Curaçao home. Just off the coast of Venezuela, Curaçao is still a member of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. For us, it was a great unknown; a year before arriving, we had never even heard of Curaçao… but we would learn. Three months proved to be a perfect amount of time to explore the island nation. Whether you’re planning your own journey to Curaçao, or are just interested in seeing what makes the island so special, our articles and photographs should help you out. Start at the beginning

After three months spent living on the small Caribbean island of Curaçao, Jürgen and I came away with some unforgettable memories. We’ve now collected our experiences into an e-book, with all of our articles and over 200 full-color photographs.
This e-book is perfect for your Kindle, Nook or any other e-reader. With over 200 full-color pictures and all our articles, indexed alphabetically and by category, this portable edition of our blog is perfect for when you’re out and about on the island. Over the course of three months, we became familiar with almost everything Curaçao has to offer, as well as some secret corners known only to locals. We discovered great beaches, visited the old Dutch Landhuizen, explored Willemstad’s colorful neighborhoods, and sampled some excellent Caribbean cuisine. We’re sure that our anecdotes, advice and photos can help inspire your own trip to the island.
For just a few bucks, you can download your own copy of the book for use on your e-reader or computer, giving you access to our articles wherever you are, without having to connect to the internet. If you’d like, take a look at some sample pages from the PDF.
