I moved to Bermuda in 2010 with my wife and kids, at first it was a challenge living on a small island, but I quickly found that I adapted to the live here. I love sailing which obviously helps as so much on the island is related to the sea. I also don’t live the cold and especially not the wet, so the UK was not ideal for me. I love scuba also Bermuda however ticks all my boxes.
I planned to stay for a year or two, but know I can’t see myself leaving, I’ve bought a house, work full time, I am looking at starting a business locally, though without Bermudian status that is not possible alone. My two girls really love it here, we spend weekends at the beach and they both attend a great school Saltus Grammar.
Before moving to Bermuda I bought a villa in Cyprus and the plan was to spend the summers there and eventually retire, now I have a home / house in Bermy and a villa in Cyprus, but I don’t get to go there, and infact went to Cyprus 3 times looking for the villa, twice when I purchased it and then rented it out, then never again since!
We have a pool and a garden so can’t really ask for more.
I spend a lot of time out and about, the weather here is balmy all year around, so I get to do a lot of cycling, running, swimming and sailing.
There are many familar things on the island, we drive on the left, have British style bobbies, and there are many expats here to keep me company. Most of my friends are Canadian, Bermudian or USA though, just chance I guess and the company I work for.
