In March, Brian & I went to Bermuda to take advantage of my last Spring Break before I finish school. (That’s in 85 days, by the way, not that I’m counting.) Bermuda was beautiful and relaxing, but also a little strange. It’s a tiny island and you can explore all the main areas in just a few days. The food is very expensive and the locals are very friendly.
Bermuda’s two main industries are international business and tourism so it’s hard to get a sense of the local culture. It’s kind of hard to explain, but it almost felt a little like Disneyland, with a distinct and beautiful look, but an oddly commercial and international feel.
In terms of relaxation, Bermuda was a great choice. It was easy to navigate the islands by bus and our hotel room was right on the beach, overlooking the amazing teal water. We explored a cave, enjoyed the aquarium, and drank the obligatory rum swizzle.
