Bermuda: A Piece of Paradise

20140206-204500.jpg

A couple of years ago, my husband and I were fortunate enough to make a trip to the stunning island of Bermuda. We loved everything about it—so much so, that we even envisioned what retirement might look like if we settled in this sweet spot (our kids were only 6, 8, and 10 yet we were talking retirement!).

Incredible beaches, beautiful landscape, uber-friendly people, heaps of history, scrumptious cuisine, and shop-till-you-drop boutiques left us feeling liked we’d stepped into paradise.

We’d love to go back with the kids. They’d love the beaches and they’d enjoy visiting the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, exploring the Crystal and Fantasy Caves, and swimming with dolphins… Did I mention how incredible the beaches are?

Fun Facts:
1. Bermuda’s “pink” sand really is pink! The sand at Horseshoe Bay Beach is actually tiny shell particles mixed in with pieces of coral and calcium carbonate.
2. The entire island measures a mere 20.75 square miles.
3. The island has the most golf courses per capita of any location in the world.
4. Bermuda shorts are the most worn attire for men. They are even worn to the office with jacket, tie, knee socks, and dress shoes during the hot season (May to November).
5. St. Georges, established in 1612, is the oldest continuously inhabited town of English origin in the western hemisphere.
