Legend has it that in the 1800s, when the Dutch ruled Curaçao, the then-governor attributed the migraines that afflicted him to the powerful Caribbean sun reflecting off the colony’s stark walls. The result? An official decree that commanded citizens to paint the structures anything but white. Today, this World Heritage site owes its distinctive pastel shades to one man’s maladies.

Gorgeous Caribbean city, even more stunning at night. We went to the slave museum which was powerful as well as Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue: the Western Hemisphere's oldest synagogue in continuous use was founded in 1651 by 12 families from Amsterdam. We really enjoyed walking through Willemstad and taking pictures at Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge.
