    Just spent a day in Curacao (off a cruise ship) beautiful and colorful island. Very welcoming too. Glad to know the experiment went so well… I often think it’s all about mindset on the road…. you definitely had the right mindset for the “no plan” adventure.
    stay adventurous, Craig

    What an awesome trip to a beautiful island! Curacao has always fascinated me and looking through your pictures just increased my excitement for our cruise port stop there later this year. I’m glad your travels without a plan worked out well.

      You will love Punda! Arriving to the center of town in cruise ship must be even more magical ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved seeing the ships disappear in the horizon

    Wonderful photo essay. I love those white sand beaches. It seems that the plan not to have a plan worked really well for you!

      Indeed! I feel that if it’s a culture I’m somewhat familiar with, the *total* travel without a plan experiment works beautifully ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great experiment! I love the colored houses lined up in a row. Curacao looks beautiful.

      The colorful architecture in Curacao was one of my favorite aspects of this island! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the story of your trip and the photos. We always travel without a plan (we research the area before we go though) so it isn’t a case of getting there and wasting precious time trying to figure out what to do. But there is such a rush to ‘just decide’ to go to thise or that city. And find a cute place and decide to see if there is room for the night.

      Indeed, the rush was a big part ๐Ÿ˜€ Researching the place at least for safety issues is recommended, though. Then, just book everything once you arrive! If it’s not a crowded, touristy place and you are not staying in a hotel nor are traveling for a holiday, II believe this is the best way to travel

    Nice trip! Funny days you got!! I was to give up of my trip to Curaรงao (I intend to go there nest month). But i just found luxury hotels and beachs…its not my kind of trip.
    But according to your post, its possible to have a different experience ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good news!

      Don’t give up! Simply tell your taxi driver to take you to Villa Colombia in Punda ๐Ÿ˜‰ they should know! I didn’t have their contact info because the cab driver simply took me there. Indeed, there is always a budget way to see a place and truly experience it as a local!

      ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t wait to experience diving and snorkeling in Curacao. I did the latter one day in Cas Abou, but it was cloudy and I was apparently snorkeling on the wrong side of the beach, so not much action. Great excuse to return! ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for commenting
