To combat February’s winter blues – and celebrate a very minor birthday – I’ve headed south. Way south, off the coast of Venezuela to the world’s newest country, Curaçao. You may have heard of it, if only for the famous blue liqueur with the same name; yet this small island – formerly part of the Netherlands Antilles – boasts a UNESCO-designated harbor and a rich history as the main port of the Dutch West India Company. And then of course there’s all that lovely Caribbean sand. And sun. And sea. Happy Birthday to me.
