Let me take a moment to highlight the amazing three new friends I made on the island.
I will first start with the boys: Filepe and Filepe.
Yes, they both have the same name, which is why I thought it would be a funny title for this blog. 🙂
Filepe – Brazil
My first impression of Filepe BR was, wow, he has very cool tattoos.
Filepe BR describes himself as a hippie. I would describe him as uber-cool, unique and hawt AF!! 😀
Filepe has a very huge Instagram following and is very adventurous. At each new location we went to in Curaçao he was always the first one to wander off and explore the area. Whenever we couldn’t find him he was usually always on top of some mountain with his GoPro; vlogging.
At the moment of writing he works for a Gay magazine in Sao Paulo, which is why he was there for Cur-PRIDE. Links below.
Filepe did trigger some memories to my former lover, since he is Brazilian and I did notice similarities in behavior, but it must be a cultural thing. But this was also a good way for me to see how much Portuguese I still knew. Have a look to his social media platform; I am sure you will not regret this.
Filepe – Colombia
Filepe CO definitely reminded me of myself. He was always the last one to arrive at our meeting points, but that is because he likes to plan what to wear and take time to freshen up. It was nice to see myself from the point of view from of someone else. I loved it!
I would describe Filepe CO as a twunk!! And be sure to check out his IG-account.
Filepe CO is also a writer for an LGBT-magazine in Colombia. The topics he writes about make my blog sound like child’s bedtime story. I have never had the intension to travel to that country, but this is now definitely on my bucket list.
I also found out that Filepe CO knows Epica and has once been to their show in Colombia. This was definitely added bonus points for him.
These boys were very cool and we definitely bonded. I hope we all get to meet again and have many more travel adventures. The world is ours and we can do this.
Our tour guide during this trip was Tirzah. Tirzah is what we described as the “Madonna of Curaçao”.
Everyone knows her and everyone loves her. Everywhere we went there was always someone that was very excited to see her. Even when in traffic she was greeted from the other cars. This was awesome as we felt we were amongst Caribbean royalty. She is very beautiful and has a joyful spirit. You can’t help but to feel good in her presence.
She definitely knows the island well and I got to know a lot more about the history of it, despite having been there before. She is definitely as “crazy” as us and we were all on the same level, which made it easier to get along, but also harder to say goodbye in the end.
I will definitely be hitting up Tirzah again when I travel to Curaçao again and you should definitely follow her and contact her in you want to get to know the island some more.
