How do you pronounce Curacao?

Justin and I are planning a trip for September. Plan A is flying to Florida and visiting my cousins there, then renting a car and driving down to the Keys BUT... isn't September right smack in the middle of hurricane season? Is that really a smart time to go snorkeling in hurricane lane? Hmmm.

Plan B costs WAY more money (ok like a few hundred on airfare) but we could go to Curacao which they say is so much farther south it's not so hurricane-ish. It's just a hair above Venezuela. I have no idea how to pronounce it, but looky here.


How beautiful is that?! It almost looks like Victorville! Yet there are a bunch of boats, airplanes and cars to snorkel through. That's the main reason for the trip, snorkeling.

Here's the inspiration for the trip, Justin and I in Belize 6 years ago. I was 4 months preggo with Kennedy. The trip was fantastic and the snorkeling A-MAZING!! It's time to go to the Caribbean again.

I don't know; for me, anywhere away from the "real world" would be a vacation! Haha! But, I'd probably try to stay away from all the hurricane trouble. Curacao looks really nice!

By the way, we live in St George, Utah, so if you are ever on your way to, say, Salt Lake, you SHOULD come visit us! We'd love to see you!

I say Curacao all the way! You deserve it! Another consideration is a cruise to Mexico. You live so close to Long Beach and cruises are having great deals. I saw some for $200.00 to 300.00 each for 4 to 7 days all food included.

Doesn't it have a squigly line under the "c", just like the Acai berry? Or then again, maybe not. But you should definitly go there!
