Transportation options haven’t quite evolved as we had hoped. Flying cars appear to be a ways off. Segways didn’t quite live up to the hype. And hoverboards remain a work in progress. What we’re left with are cars that parallel park themselves and a scooter craze that I really thought would be dead by now. The problem with scooters, however, is everything that they become difficult to ride when you’re holding things. In order to keep your hands free while on a scooter, you need to carry a backpack. Well, that just makes you top heavy and prone to disastrous falls. Granted, I don’t leave SkyMall Tuesday headquarters without first putting on a helmet, but not everyone is so careful. But what if you need to get somewhere with a backpack’s worth of belongings and you’ve realized that teleportation, like the aforementioned transportation dreams, has yet to become commercially available? Well, what if your scooter was your backpack? Or, your backpack was your scooter? Thankfully, our friends at SkyMall know a good mash-up when they see one, and that’s why you can now get to school, work, or through the airport while riding your Glyde Gear Backpack Scooter.
When I first stumbled upon my new favorite haunt in Willemstad, Curacao – a sexy Latino bar called Mundo Bizarro – and parked my ride on the sidewalk with the assurance that I would never have to worry about getting a parking ticket, my vacation officially began.
As the Caribbean’s most populous and largest of the ABC islands, Curacao offers a variety of activities which include shopping along the Breedestraat Punda; photographing the colorful Dutch architecture from the rickety Pontoon Bridge connecting the two sections of Willemstad separated by waterway; diving and snorkeling at over 30 beaches renowned for their coral reefs (both natural and man-made); and lots of bars and restaurants scattered throughout the island.
