We were fortunate enough to live in Bermuda for two years in the early 2000s. It’s gentle, clean, friendly and gorgeous. Finally, this December we had a chance to get back there for a few days over the Christmas break–10 years later.
We were happy to find it has changed little. I don’t want to write a lot about the place in this post, because pictures tell the story much better, as you can see in the gallery I’ve added. I will say that, for anyone who lives in eastern Canada, it’s amazingly quick to get to, and you must give it a try. Yes, it’s a fairly pricey place as far as accommodations go (but the shopping on Front St. in Hamilton is great, and tax-free!), but being only 2-3 hours’ flight away means you don’t have to make a major time commitment; in fact, you can check it out for just three or four days and come away feeling relaxed and very glad you went.
I know that’s how my husband and I felt. We booked a guest house online called Serendipity Guest Apartments, and it was perfect. We didn’t need a fancy hotel since we were outdoors most of the time, buzzing around on rental scooters, walking the beaches and stopping where we pleased to take in the views or grab a meal or refreshment.
I’ll stop there, but if you have any questions about Bermuda, let me know in the Comments section below.
