This spring break I was able to go home to my beautiful island of Bermuda for the first time in fourteen months. At the moment I am currently seated at a computer desk with The Atlantic Ocean behind me. Sounds of the waves crashing against each other, birds fighting against the strong winds threatening to take them and the brightness of a powerful sun, strong enough to lit even the darkest of moods. This is my home. The paradise of my dreams and keeper of my heart. I knew that being away from home wasn’t going to be easy, I lived in Vermont during my middle school years, but being younger, you appreciate a lot less the beauty and value of the treasures you leave behind.
Today I’ll be taking you along to the East end of the island to check out some of the sights and activities in beautiful St. George’s! Check out the beach at tobacco bay, the beautiful unfinished church, and some of the clearest, most blue waters you’ve ever seen!
Summer is here in Bermuda! Which means yoga on the beach in the morning, Stand Up Paddle boarding in the afternoon, and frozen drinks and beach kicks in the evening! Come see what all the fuss is about and follow me in my weekend adventures!
Come along for a trip to Bermuda to experience the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Races with me! Experience from land and sea the excitement of sailing in the greatest race on water.
I must confess that before I visited the Bermuda Islands all I knew was the legends of the missing ships in the famous Bermuda triangle . Come on, because I did not know, I could not place it on the map. Despite being a destination of indescribable beauty, it is still unknown to many. Today I tell you, 17 things you did not know about Bermuda and its people.
Bermudian international speaker, musician and entrepreneur Gianluca Gibbons takes the stage as the Master of Ceremonies along side keynote speaker, political activist, author and academic, Professor Angela Davis and U.S. Congressman Takano at La Sierra University, in Riverside California. The black tie gala honored Professor Davis for her outstanding contributions to social justice around the world and awarded scholarships to university students. Mr. Gibbons helped conduct the nights’ event with his candid sense of humor and sincere appreciation for the legacy of Professor Davis.
A tall white lighthouse reigns over our resort of pink and blue. As we check in to our suite, I walk onto our balcony to inhale Bermuda’s breeze. I look to my right. There it is again, always looking over us. A constant reminder that Bermuda is alive. A heartbeat in the middle of the Atlantic, for all to see. At night it’s rhythm poured in through the parting of the balcony curtains, the soft light waxing and waning. Like watching your lover sleep next to you, their chest rising and falling, softly lulling you to sleep. The lighthouse has a story, an ode to an earlier time of discovery and adventure. I must go see it.
Our second day in Bermuda opened with some slightly overcast skies. Since this limited our sun-bathing activities, we wondered: what could we do on this breezy island day? Answer: spa day.
The anticipation that comes with expecting a baby rivals the excitement of a child leading up to Christmas morning. You steep in this expectant joy as the weeks count down further and further. Still so crazy to think that we will be molding Christmas mornings one day for our little girl.
This post is something that means a lot to me and hopefully can be helpful. Many Bermudians realize that Bermuda does not recycle plastic. When I’ve looked into this issue, I’ve gotten a range of responses saying it’s too expensive, we don’t have enough space on the island for a recycling plant or that burning plastic is actually better for our planet (umm?). Regardless of the reason, it seems that we’re not going to implement a plastic recycling plan anytime soon so in the meantime it’s important to try to REDUCE our use of plastic. I’m outlining some ideas of how to get Bermudians involved and aware about plastic consumption.
The Beaches of Bermuda
I’ve never written a blog before but I’ve watched my boyfriend create vlogs using his camera so there can’t be much of a difference right? Except this one is on paper, well my computer. So here I go writing my first blog about my trips to Bermuda and the video that my boyfriend created for me so that I could share it with the rest of the world.
I may be biased; my ancestors were amongst some of the very first to settle in Bermuda, in 1609. My family therefore (on my mother’s side) are Bermudian through and through, something of which I am very proud! And if you’ve been to Bermuda, you will know why. The island is paradise. A surreal place, somewhat isolated in the North Atlantic Ocean, it is beautifully bordered by its pink sands, which lead into the most glorious turquoise waters. Just 22 miles in length and one mile across, the tiny island is made colourful not only by its surrounding waters, but as much by the multi-pastel houses that sit scattered across the hills and along the coastlines, each one crowned with a glistening white roof. Not solely for aesthetics, Bermuda’s trademark white roofs are all white for a very important purpose – collecting rainwater; The white cement wash compound sanitises the rainwater as it runs off into a holding tank – an eye catching solution to a lack of fresh water. The…
For those of you who have never left the country, you need to get up TODAY and book a trip somewhere. There is too much in this world to stay stagnant in the US of A. My trip to Bermuda was my first international trip and honey, let me tell you, it was more than I could’ve dreamed of.
One of the best things about social media and the internet in general is randomly finding new and interesting people you might have otherwise never met. Over the last two years I have met and collaborated with some really awesome people through social media.
Having used up most my vacation days for the year, I’ve mastered the art of 3-night-long trips (the Dora in me just can’t help it) along side the hacks of carry-on packing and staying alive while getting through a semi-packed itinerary. Lately I’ve been on a streak of visiting places close to my hometown somewhat off season but decent enough time that I’d still find humans to interact with. After all that’s the beauty of it all. Pick a couple of points of interest and voila. Although my recent adventure is to a destination most popular for honeymooners; I, who by all means wasn’t there for baby-making reasons, had a fairly good balance of secluded and social experience. It was all but yawn. Just ask the lovely bachelorette party we painted the island red with.
If you do happen to be in Bermuda on a Sunday then you must do the Fairmont Hotel brunch.
