Curacao Beach Bars – Keeping An Open Heart

Tagged: , , , ,

The thing about Jim Greer is that the manner in which he conveys his travel experiences, among them this most recent story about a beach bar breakfast in Curacao, is so poetic that they seem magical. Really, though, how many of us, when we first encounter an island or destination, have chosen to strike out on our own in search of somewhere special?
