  • I had admired the Queen Juliana bridge several times "from below" and firmly made me even to drive. On Saturday, it was time. On my way to the East of the island, I finally got to the bridge. I was alone in the car and there was no wind. I first noticed the incredible views of Willemstaad, I was thrilled! But then, on the bridge, I was taken suddenly from such a fear of heights, as I had never before experienced. The bridge has a 'free float' no design mind. The railing is not particularly high and driving even more uphill! I used the right lane behind me and before me was not another vehicle. I died almost scared, clutching the steering wheel like a Madwoman and reached the other shore Finally, screaming and drenched in sweat. No, so the prospect may be, people with fear of heights should be careful. On the way back I was keen to find a way other than via the bridge, only what I then also managed.

  • It was our first visit to the island and when we arrived at the bridge was awesome! Because it is huge, looks like a mini roller coaster! Hahaha. The view from there is beautiful, they are the colorful houses and that already glad your trip:D. I must admit that whenever we spent it she was scared, since those who know it passed at high speed! Shame has a place to walk and take pictures, although I assume that it is for caution.
