My Top Five 2021 Bermuda Things
🔝5️⃣ Two more of these Top Five’s to share. Bermuda is like no other place in the World in so many different ways. It’s is peculiar and beautiful in equal measures.
Living on this tiny 21 square mile isle we have been mostly fortunate compared to others during Covid times, as life has generally been normal(ish), although the island felt even more isolated due to the lack of visitors.
There’s still much to like however, and these were my 2021 Top Five Favourite Bermuda Things 🏝
1️⃣ Bermuda Government Covid Press Conferences
Bermuda doesn’t have much of their own TV programming aside from a nightly news show and some tourism documentaries on loop, but the Bermuda Government press conferences that were at one stage every night were the funniest things on the box. Totally amateurish and aided and abetted by the most idiotic questioning from local reporters. I will miss those.
For almost the entire period of Covid we’ve been living under a curfew on the island. It has been as early as 8pm, and the time has changed frequently, the most recent being 12.30am. However, I loved the curfew because it meant you had to go home, and were able to kick people out of your house without being rude.
3️⃣ Island Time Sail Boat
This is a great little company that operate private sailboat charters. Two informative and fun captains who will serve you drinks and food to make it the most laziest of days. The boat also has a myriad of water based activities and games too if you’re bored of lazing under the sails.
4️⃣ Huckleberry Restaurant
I used this place a lot and the food is excellent. It has the look and feel of a stately Bermudian manor. The setting is perfect for a restaurant, with it’s welcoming veranda and landscaped gardens. Happy Hour is well worth a visit.
5️⃣ Point House
The newest and most high-tech building in Bermuda opened during 2021, and my company moved into it in November and after working from home it reminds me of why I always wanted to work as part of a team in an office. The downstairs French boulangerie on the ground floor sells freshly baked goods and coffee. Very handy.
