Luggage (theft, loss, delay) Suitcases, clothing, shoes, cosmetics, valuables, travel documents, sports equipment etc.
nsurances are more important than you think. When planning a vacation trip, we often don't realize how important it is to have a travel insurance. BSure proves that getting good insurance fast and at a reasonable premium is possible! In this interview with BSure, you will get to know why it is so important to have a travel insurance before going on vacation! Why is travel insurance so important? When you are going on vacation, the last thing you think about is insurance. However, it is important to keep in mind that when you are abroad, unexpected things can happen. Unexpected things often mean extra costs! Can you give some examples of what can happen when you go on vacation? Ever heard about someone losing their suitcase while traveling? What about if your luggage arrives late at the destination? God forbid your personal possessions get stolen in your hotel room! Apart from the material losses, accidents and medical emergencies are (believe it or not) quite common when traveling. And what happens if you need to unexpectedly come back to Bonaire because something happened to one of the family members you left behind? These are all real life examples.
Medical Medical expenses including doctors, hospitals, air ambulance etc. Dental Dental expenses caused by accident or for other urgent care. Accident Costs i.c.w. for example passing away or permanent total disability. Unexpected Extra accommodation, extra costs due to delays, extra costs due to lost/ stolen passports, extra telecommunication expenses, search and rescue expenses, repatriation of remains, funeral/cremation abroad etc. What makes the BSure travel insurance so attractive? BSure offers the most extensive coverage at the lowest price. For a low premium per person per day you can enjoy your vacation without any worries. At BSure, your sports equipment and kids under the age of 12 are insured for FREE! How do I apply for the BSure travel Insurance? Just visit our website www.bsurebonaire.com to calculate your premium or call us at 715 5444 for a premium calculation and easy application! You are of course also welcome at one of our MCB branches.
What does travel insurance cover? There are different travel insurance products on the market. From the simplest coverage to the most extensive. The extensive coverage that BSure offers includes coverage in connection with:

“Kitesurfing is not just what you can do on the water, it is also the positivity and attitude you live your life with.”
Christiaan The kitesurfer Zweers For Christiaan Zweers any day at the beach is better than a day in the office (we agree!). Since he was a little boy he was stoked about the ocean. His passion for kitesurfing was born at the age of 11, when he saw his father jump in the sky with a kite surfer. ‘’Kitesurfing is not just what you can do on the water, it is also the positivity and attitude you live your life with.’’ Get know the coolest kitesurfer on Bonaire and the amazing sport he loves: Kitesurfing!
How long have you been practicing kitesurfing and what/who inspired you to start? I started Kitesurfing when I was 11 years old. Now I am 23. My father is a water sports enthusiast and definitely taught me how to be stoked about the ocean. We both used to windsurf back in the day. When kitesurfing arrived on the scene it was a whole different ball game. The first time I saw my father jump with a kite surfer I couldn’t believe my eyes! He was up like 8m in the sky and landed as soft as a feather! With kitesurfing you suddenly had the option to jump higher, get up to speed quicker, turn faster, splash more water and in my opinion, just have more fun! I guess that’s why eventually I made that decision to go over from windsurfing to kitesurfing. What do you love most about this sport and what’s the most challenging part? What I enjoy most is to be able to inspire others to go out on the water and have fun. Life is way too serious and nobody needs all that stress. Any day at the beach is better than a day in the office. Kitesurfing is a way to connect with nature, feeling the salty
water touch your skin, breathing in the fresh air and sheeting up your kite to do massive jumps! The most challenging part of kitesurfing is definitely convincing people that it is not dangerous. There’s a common misconception with people who have never tried it before, thinking it is very dangerous and that you can get injured very bad. The truth is, if you are in a controlled environment where you feel relaxed and an instructor guides you on what you should do, there is no danger. It is dangerous if you have never kite surfed before and without an instructor in an uncontrolled environment. Than you can get severely injured. Kitesurfing now a days is so safe that even if the worst scenario occurs you will still be safe. What was your biggest accomplishment so far? I have competed in many competitions and have won and lost. But my biggest accomplishment was in 2013. The Heineken Kite Ride. That was an event where pro’s from all over the world got invited to Bonaire to compete in a Slider and Kicker event. Like skateboarding, there were ramps and rails set up in the water where you could
jump off of and do tricks. In that event I won the overall rookie of the event and I was so stoked to be in that environment around those people that I made the decision that this is what I wanted to do. I was 18 slightly overweight and realized what I wanted and where I was headed. Do you have any daily habits that makes you a successful kite surfer? I train hard! I used to be overweight. At a certain point I realized what I wanted. The thought of seeing myself in the future was enough to make a change. When I was 18 I made the decision to really be fit. Like exercising daily at least 1 hour, ate as natural as I could, and kited 3+ hours a day. I got healthier and started progressing quickly with kitesurfing. Until this day, I make sure that in my daily routine there is some form of exercise, natural food and kitesurfing involved. Before competition my focus changes a bit more towards kitesurfing. I will lay off some exercise to get more hours kitesurfing. So before comps I’ll train for about 4 - 6 hours a day depending on the wind and water conditions.
“Kitesurfing is a way to connect with nature” Where is your favorite spot to kitesurf on Bonaire? My favorite spot is Atlantis, the official kite spot of Bonaire. I have ridden that spot so much I know it like the back of my hand. Every nook and cranny, every gust and every coral head that grows beneath the surface I have memorized in the back of my head. There are rescue boats available provided by the kite schools that use the location to give lessons. When I want to learn a new trick I know that Atlantis is the best place to do that because I know the spot very well and it is safe. Where do you think the future of kitesurfing is heading here on Bonaire? I really hope to see us kite surfers getting a facility on the beach. Right now the kite schools have to transport everything they use all the way to the beach every morning, set up and rig everything back down at the end of the day and transport it back every single day. Because of this, the kite school’s pricing is fairly high and locals can’t afford to even take the first “try it out” lesson and to see if kitesurfing is something they could enjoy. Next to that, transporting everything every day adds so much pollution to the environment. Vehicles have to drive up and down the coast carrying materials and equipment that is used to set up and do lessons. If the kite schools had their own facility it would definitely lessen the pollution and even bring the possible opportunity of going completely green. Next to this, all the money that was put into transport can be saved and that could possibly be put into projects for the Bonairian youth who would like to learn how to kitesurf. I’m 23 now, and honestly I am the youngest dedicated local kite surfer on the Island. It would mean so much to me to see youngsters out on the water and carry the sport to the next generation and produce world champions.
What are your future plans/ goals with kitesurfing? I would like to have a facility where I can train young athletes to being not just the best kite surfer they can be but also being the best athlete and person they can be. Because kitesurfing is not just what you can do on the water, it is also the positivity and attitude you live your life with. So my goal through kitesurfing is to inspire everyone and especially youngsters around me that if you work hard and have the right mindset and attitude, the sky literally is the limit. Do you have any tips or advice for the Boné readers that are interested in practicing kitesurfing? For sure! Always stay relaxed, be positive, listen to your instructor and the solution will find you right around the corner.

When we stepped in, we were welcomed by the lovely staff and we let the chef surprises us with their brand new menu. We started out with the Neptune salad. This is a combination of delicately diced pieces of fish with white wakame, surimi, spring onions, and sesame seeds. This salad is tossed with sesame oil, honey, and mustard dressing that takes you on an exotic tour of East Asia. The balance between the salinity from the wakame, the vinegary punch from the mustard, and that dash of sweetness from the honey plays extremely well with the delicate fish.

The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked to a rosy pink. Perfectly seasoned, and grilled to perfection, the rack of lamb was juicy, and succulent. It was served with a lovely chimichurri sauce, mashed potatoes, carrot and pumpkin puree. It was a very satisfactory main course. On to dessert, where we had a duo of bavarois, accompanied by some lovely ice-creams (passion fruit and coffee). It was truly stunning. A strawberry, and a mango bavarois served with fresh mango and lemon juice, crushed cookies, mint leaves, and spherical passionfruit gel. The flavours just explode in your mouth, with the passionfruit spheres providing little bursts of flavour. Both of these ice-creams had a terrific mouthfeel, and the flavour was intense. We highly recommend you to visit Spice Bar & Restaurant to try their new menu. The food is delicious, great ambiance and the perfect place to watch sunset.

For the main courses, we had the chicken ballotine, and the rack of lamb. The chicken ballotine was stuffed with a delectable combination of mushrooms, carrots, and garlic. The chicken was cooked beautifully, and was very tender and moist. It was accompanied by a lovely asparagus sauce. To go along with this main course, a side dish of rice croquettes were served. The croquettes had a nice crunch and packed a big punch when it comes to flavour.
Hey Bonè, readers!
ecently I have been opting more and more for organic food products as a personal health choice. It is a quite expensive lifestyle yet I believe that it is safer, healthier and the production is nice to the earth. Yet while having a healthy diet and choosing for organic products are the perfect key factors on being healthy, there are many other factors that you need to consider in order to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Setting up a healthy lifestyle challenge can be exciting yet intimidating at the same time. Like, where do you even start right? Relax, I got you! Here are a few small factors you should establish when it comes to adopting healthy habits and keeping them. All you need to do is put your focus on the following do’s & don’ts and you will definitely see results.
1.Get enough sleep. Enough sleep is very essential whatever your goals are. A good rest increases overall productivity and concentration. 2.Stop stressing. Stress depletes your energy and it keeps your cortisol level high. So take care of your mental and spiritual health. Try meditating or yoga. 3.Positivity and gratitude. The body believes what the mind thinks! A healthy positive attitude and regularly showing appreciation helps boost your overall health.
4.Detox! This will shed fat and toxins that are responsible for aging. Go for whole and organic food, fruit, veggies and hormone free meats. And don’t forget those 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. 5.Exercise daily If you want to live well and longer you have to exercise. Hitting the gym can be boring. Take dancing lessons, go for a hike or even play outside with your kids.
Good luck, Rithel Emerenciana

Experience Bonaire BONÈ
with Marcy Yu & Robert M. Poole
Photography: Robert Michael Poole
Last month, we had the honor to welcome famous blogger Marcy Yu and photojournalist Robert Michael Poole on our beautiful island, Bonaire. Always wanted to know how our visitors experience Bonaire? Read this special interview we had with Marcy and Robert to find out how they experienced Bonaire and also about the best places to stay, eat and more!
You’ve been to so many places and now Bonaire. How did you experience Bonaire?
What was the highlight of your stay on Bonaire?
We decided to travel 3 months to the Caribbean and we started with the ABC islands. We found it very interesting how each one is so different to each other within the ABC’s. We really love Bonaire because is so laid-back, not so many tourists (we love that), the waters are absolutely stunning and everyone was so friendly with us!
Definitely diving, snorkeling and sailing on a catamaran around the island. It felt like a Caribbean paradise at that moment, we hope it remains as undeveloped as it is, so quiet compared to anything you find on Aruba or Curacao!
Marcyyu.com @Marcy_Yu @robertmichaelpoole
Once you’ve visit Bonaire, you’ll always be our friend! Would you visit us again? Of course! We stayed one week and we felt we didn't had enough time to see everything, especially the east side of the island which we only passed by! There's so much to see and do. For sure we want to come back!
The Best... Places to stay Firstly we would say Bellafonte Bonaire, we love this hotel because it is on the coast on the west side and has a beautiful pier where you can go diving or snorkeling directly from. It's a great hotel for families, the rooms are huge with multiple bedrooms. The Windhoek Resort we love how relaxed this was, with large individual villas and a central pool. It's a great option for a romantic getaway. Lastly Courtyard by Marriott because it is so colorful, beautiful architecture and the pool is spectacular. It's so different to many Courtyard Marriott’s around the world, so it's definitely worth a visit!
Place to watch sunset @robertmichaelpoole
Restaurants It Rains Fishes is the best seafood place. The Coffee Company we spent the most time at, is such a nice place to relax, work on your laptop and they have the best cakes. It’s connected to an ice cream store too which makes a great combination! Windsock The Beach has the best food, we enjoyed everything that we tasted there. We loved the variation of dishes. Our favorite was a simple classic, the tomato soup! We also went to The Boneriain for breakfast and it’s very nice and the view too. And lastly BLT burger at The Courtyard by Marriott. If you are a fan of burgers it’s a must! Probably the best burgers on the island.
We did a UTV tour with Bonaire Cruisers and at the last stop we watched the sunset at Seru Largu and was absolutely stunning, it’s the highest point of the island so you can see right across it!
Beaches The beaches on the North side of Klein Bonaire. We sailed around the island with Epic Tours Bonaire almost all day on a catamaran and those beaches where our favorites. Literally one of the most crystal clear waters we have ever seen. We invited Jade and Maxime, local friends we actually met for the first time there via Instagram. When we arrived there we decide to jump out of the catamaran and swim to the island. There was so many fishes around! We had so much fun swimming with them and sunbathing in the pristine environment. A thousand steps was also nice especially if you are into diving. We saw so much marine life there in the waters, its one famous location that doesn’t disappoint! 17

Combat that “you complete me” myth by investing in your own interests, even if you have to drag yourself away from bae’s side. Besides, there are other great partnerships to explore, like joint business ventures and creative collaborations.
Detox your emotional life, there are far too many fabulous people on the planet to fill up your time with needy or manipulative energy vampires! Earn loyalty points with the movers and shakers in your industry by playing the eager apprentice or spearheading a project of your own.
June 21 - July 22
January 20 - February 18
You’re too blessed to be stressed this July, Cancer. It’s your birthday season after all, a time to flaunt your magic and rush fearlessly after your dreams. Clean house of friendships, hobbies, and commitments that drain your ‘joie de vivre’.
Embrace a collaborative approach at work before it gets lonely at the top. Listen to your heart instead of constantly opinion-polling your friends. They just won’t get it. Cupid is also in your corner big time this month.
It’s time to tie up any loose ends in your love live or you will not be able to move forward with your current romantic goals. Pause for a beat when you feel the heat, because jumping to conclusions or into bed could bring regrets.
Wanderlust washes over you this month. Your adventurous spirit is stoked and you’ll need more room to roam. Take a beach vacay or have a spa treatment. Pampering yourself will put fuel in your tanks for an equally bustling July!
Februrary 19 - March 20
July 23 - August 22
August 23 - September 22
A partnership that’s been percolating since May could become Instagram-official. Already attached? This month will bring a heart-thumping milestone...or the courage to spring free if you know it’s time to move on. A little retail therapy is sanctioned, too, as long as you balance the books.
September 23- October 22
Slip off on a sweet escape to recharge your batteries, or visit a nurturing loved one who just lets you be. At home, you’ll also need plenty of privacy and dreamtime. Romantically, you won’t be a fan of boundaries in July, but alas, they are necessary.
October 23 - November 21
You will have some trouble this month when it comes with detecting a player from a keeper. But if it’s only a hookup you’re looking for, no worries then. But real talk: Your sensitive sign is prone to attachment, especially once the sex goggles are on.
November 22 - December 21
This month, lounging by the pool and treating yourself to spa pedicures may be more in alignment with what your soul needs (read: a break!). In-between daydreaming and long naps, do dive into a decluttering mission. The last thing you need is a bunch of baggage.
March 21 - April 19
Mingle with the suit-and-tie crowd, because connections. Going into business with bae could be a plan worth pondering if your skills align. Pay your dues at work, too, showing and proving your diligence and dedication. Your algorithm for success involves a visionary idea and a practical plan.
April 20 - May 20
In July you will meet a soulmate-grade match or have The Talk that begins a legendary love affair with someone you’ve been quietly crushing on. While it’s in your nature to put all your eggs in a single basket, you MUST keep your interests diversified. 23
Will be available in-stores and online August ‘18
