Being from America I thought Bermuda would be the perfect place to dip my toe into international travel. The Bermuda dollar is the same value as the US dollar, so the two are interchangeable. You don’t need to exchange money you can use US dollars and get change back the same. Bermuda is a British colony so English is the main language, a short flight, no culture shock. Easy!
The flight from JFK was about 90 minutes, not bad considering we sat in 3 hours of traffic on our way to the airport. We were booked at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort, which is located right across from the airport. We checked-in dropped our bags and headed right to the water….okay, the bar first. The Gentleman at customs said we need to do 2 things when we were in Bermuda; Drink a Dark & Stormy and see the pink sand beaches. Dark and stormy…Check.
Horseshoe Bay Beach is Bermuda’s most famous beach, here you will find some of the iconic pink sand. We headed out early on a Sunday and took a taxi to Horseshoe Bay. Our taxi driver explained to us that Horseshoe bay was just the beginning of a string of beautiful beaches, that get pinker as you walk east (left if you are facing the water).
If you’ve ever googled best places to find sea glass, I’m sure Bermuda came up in your search results. No need to scour the entire shore for a piece of sea glass, because the entire beach is covered in piles of it.
It has been a long, very long winter here in the northeast. To break it up my mother, sister and I took a girls getaway to Fort Myers Beach, FL. This is our second time taking the trip, so this year we were able streamline everything to save money and optimize our time away.
The Outer Banks is a string of barrier Islands of the coast of North Carolina, nicknamed OBX for short. It has been our choice for a quite family vacation for about 10 years. There truly is something for everybody here, history, culture, beach sports, shopping and awesome food!
The road to Hana is one of those landmark drives that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime, I am lucky enough to have done it twice. Located on the island of Maui, the road to Hana is a 68 mile long stretch that connects Kahului to Hana. Along the way you will find 600 twists and turns and more that 50 bridges and millions of beautiful sights. There are about 15 must-see locations on the journey, I’ll share with you some of my favorites.
I was on a girls trip to Fort Myers, FL and we decided to get a little adventurous and check out one of the other islands in the area. From where we were staying you could just make out the Sanibel Island lighthouse and that warranted a closer look.
