Bermuda Vacation…Great Wedding Destination!

Friday, September 7th, 2012

As much I enjoy my work, it’s always so nice to be able to take some days off for vacation and just enjoy my time and recharge my batteries. The last thing we want in this business its to burn ourselves out, especially after a big wedding season that began in May.  Being in the hospitality industry – no matter what happens you always need to stay motivated and excited.

Bermuda was my destination for vacation this year.  A beautiful island located in a British territory, I loved it!!! That could be awesome for a wedding destination….

Speaking of hospitality, the Bermudians really take it seriously.  They make you feel welcome and at home in their small country of 65,000 people – all with such a nice and friendly attitude that made me never want to leave.

Getting to know the whole island – from one side to the other – in half a day riding a scooter through very narrow roads where all the cars and the Bermuda public pink buses use the left side of the road.  It was a little scary and took a little getting used to:-)

I tried famous Bermuda rum swizzle and of course as much I appreciate and enjoy food I could not be in Bermuda without trying their wonderful cuisine. Oh my gosh –everything was to die for.  See the pics below:

By the way, if you there you must go snorkeling.  We found this company online called Snorkel Bermuda.   We decided to go with them because they had such incredible reviews and we did not go wrong because the owner Sonny made our experience just amazing.  I can’t deny that I was terrified to jump for the first time into such deep water because the last thing I wanted was to become a shark food in Bermuda :-):-):-)

The weather was beautiful, we had our own private beach at the Fairmont Hotel, the water was so nice and clear and the sand was pink.  Just a perfect paradise that definitely I would like to visit again someday.  If you’ve never been there I highly recommend it.
