Just came back on a cruise to Bermuda. Had no expectations. All i have to say that the time there was fabulous. I saw pretty much all of the island and I have to say that I didn't see any poverty there. I can only say that about Hawaii (Maui) on the islands that I visited. The pink houses through out the island, gives the place a fantasy prisom of sorts, as the people there were kind and courteous. There's plenty of shops, restaurants and things to explores. One of my disappointments was we were unable to visit some of the old forts that go back to the 18th century. You can't do it all in 2 days to my chagrin. We went in July and it was hot and humid there but I had to remind myself that we're in the gulf stream and this still beats the middle of February. All in all a great trip and if you get a chance to go there by all means, back the suntan lotion, sun glasses and hat. Then enjoy.
