“You can go to heaven if you want. I’d rather stay in Bermuda.”

Background

My brother worked in Bermuda teaching sailing for a few summers and we used to go visit him. Ever since then, we have made it an annual trip and Bermuda has become one of my favourite places in the world to visit. Mark Twain once said, “You can go to heaven if you want. I’d rather stay in Bermuda.”

As soon as you land the first thing you will notice is the lush countryside dotted with brightly coloured white topped houses.

Once you leave the airport, you will take any number of small winding roads, that at times, can barely fit two cars wide, which is why many on the island choose to use scooters.

The beaches in Bermuda have amazing white and pink sand that lays between varying sized volcanic coves. Each beach has its own unique feel and you can walk from one to one quite easily.

These same beaches are even more amazing if you’re up early enough for sunrise.

The normally calm waters of Bermuda can get quite rough if a tropical storm or hurricane passes by the island.

The Gibbs hill lighthouse is located on the highest point on the island and is an interesting walk to get to it.
