Our first family trip to the Caribbeans was Aruba. This time, we went for the “C” in the ABC islands, Curacao. It’s a slightly larger island, although you can still get from one end to the other and back in a car on the same day. We stayed at an Airbnb which meant we cooked most of our meals. The most exciting part of our trips are the snorkeling, and fishing. I am terrible with sea sickness, so the majority of the fishing trip I was knocked out. Good thing Olya took over the filming while I was unconscious! Just like Aruba, Curacao is extremely windy which is wonderful for keeping the bugs away. I was hesitant at first trying to fly my Mavic Pro in such windy conditions, but after a few test flights I felt confident enough that it could hold steady and not get dragged out to sea. I really enjoyed all the ocean shots, and none of the beach goers had any issues, and a bunch of locals came up to me out of curiosity and we held some interesting conversations. What a friendly and happy island. Next trip will be “B” for Bonaire!

    Hi Tony. Do you feel like capturing more vacation videos instead of photographs?
    I recently condensed my personal photo album and feel like I want to capture more video moments from now.

    Hi Chris, I think I’m back into my video phase for now, since most people including me enjoy sitting down to watch a video instead of scrolling through photos. It also helps that I’ve been getting a few videography toys lately. I’m sure someday it might go back to photographs too!
