While it's certainly been true that Bermuda has had a reputation for '..expensive..'...there are compensations that create a great deal of genuine '..added value..'. In peat, this '..added value..' comes in the form of incredible natural beauty and access. As example, Bermuda very best beaches are all entirely public and free to all. They are spectacularly scenic, un-crowded and entirely free of peddlers, pestering you to purchase native '..trinkets 'n trash..' (with 'Made in China' stamped on the bottom). Bermuda is genuinely friendly and hospitable. Tourists tend to be warmly welcomed '..guests..' rather than 'sheep' to be fleeced. Bermuda is a remarkably safe and '..comfortable..' destination, that you can go out 'n about,...explore, experience and enjoy...at almost anywhere, at almost anytime of day or night....not just your security-patrolled, gated '..resort..' property. Perhaps the most '..threatened..' that you'll ever feel in Bermuda is at the beach or pool.....when you discover that the SPF number on your tanning lotion isn't nearly high enough.
So when you look at the prices on a restaurant menu...think about these '..added value..' recompense.....and tell yourself that the reason you're not ordering that extra dessert is because of the '..expense..'......rather than pushing you over your '..point..' count on the Weight Watchers daily calculation....or that it'll mean an hour's extra workout in the fitness center...rather than an extra hour lying on a pink sandy beach or on a chaise by the hotel pool.
