Bermuda 2018

 

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.
