Bermuda on My Mind
July 15, 2007
My recent trip to Bermuda exceeded all expectations. The island was filled with beautiful beaches, romantic restaurants and many places to explore. The island's citizens are gracious and go out of there way to make you feel welcome. I can't remember that last time someone came up to me and thanked me for traveling to their Island. My wife and I got so comfortable that we even started taking the interconnected bus and ferry system around the island. All of this only 1.5 hours from New York. The island was modern, clean, and wonderful.
I was surprised to learn that Bermuda is seeing an uptick in visitors after many years of decline. How could a wonderland this close to home not be flooded with visitors from the East. I think the Bermuda department of tourism should take a hard look at their marketing programs and try to understand why it doesn't capture the spirit of the Island.
