Happy Holidays

23 May

It’s holiday time in our household! We’re off to Florida for a few weeks and we are so excited. Florida was my favourite holiday as a child, and going back as an adult is just as magical. For me, Orlando will always be candy floss, and fireworks, and sunshine, and smiles. If Christmas Day were a holiday destination, it would be Florida.

In general, past holidays for Rich and I have usually meant a luxurious treat of sunshine and beach days. Now we live on an island of sunshine and beach days however, we feel differently! Whilst lounging by the pool will still be a treat, as we don’t have a pool of our own, I’m also looking forward to simple things such as travelling in a car! The scooter is great fun most of the time, but on days where you don’t want tangles in your hair and shouted conversations, a car is luxurious!

When we first arrived in Bermuda, people warned us about what is commonly known to expats and locals alike as “Rock Fever”. Being a small island, sometimes it does get a little claustrophobic and people have to get away and stretch their legs. I think I may be suffering a little…I’m so looking forward to being able to go to a choice of restaurants, shop in a range of different malls and go to the cinema one evening and have more than one film option! But the beauty of Bermuda is that it’s so close to the Caribbean, the east coast of the USA and Canada. Rock Fever is easily cured with Miami, Boston and New York being visit-able in a weekend. And I plan to take full advantage of this whilst we live here!

Happy holidays to anyone reading with upcoming vacations or stay-cations! 🙂

    As a fellow ‘rock’ dweller I know how you feel! However, a trip to Adventure Island, Southend is not quite the same as Florida! Have a lovely time.
