Cliff jumping is nothing new to Bermudians who have been jumping off the rocks into water since ages. But now this fun but risky sport is attracting far more participation including visitors and lot more jumping locations are being discovered. Go through the link below to know the island scene on this:

Planning a trip to Bermuda? You love the sand and the turquoise water of the Atlantic. And imagine sipping a cocktail as you sit on a lounger with your feet on the sands and watching a spectacular sunset! .... it doesn't end there, you can go on to enjoy bonfire and DJ's music on the beach as well as barbecue. Visit the following link to know how:

Over the past couple of weeks, there was a stiff competition going on in Bermuda among the restaurants in the island. Bermuda Tourism Authority organized this competition to find out who makes the best fish sandwich in the island. 39 restaurants participated. Local residents voted during the initial rounds and judges chose the winner from the top five. Some of the criteria for selection included taste, presentation, local flair and value. And the grand winner was Rosa's (formerly known as Rosa's Cantina) located on Front Street, Hamilton which actually specializes in Mexican food. The other four in the top five are Mama Angie's, Sea Side Grill, Tribe Road Kitchen and Woody's. However one thing to note that Art Mel's (which is located in Hamilton and St. George's) was so far known as by far the best place to get fish sandwiches. However Art Mel's did not participate in the competition, possibly to avoid jeopardizing their reputation.

Here is a great opportunity to experience Bermuda's traditional dance and music. Every Saturday starting June 6th until October 31st there will be live performances at Queen Elizabeth Park in Hamilton (easy walk from Hamilton ferry terminal). It starts with live Steelpan Music at 12noon, followed by an address from the Hamilton Town Crier, and then at 12:40pm Bermuda's Gombey Dancers perform in their full colorful costumes. Gombey is one of the oldest folk dance traditions of the island which originated from Afro-Caribbean cultural celebrations. Admission is free for all.

Darjeeling Earthquake Situation (as on 18th May, 2015, 6pm):

Darjeeling lovers, want you to know that the series of earthquakes in recent times has virtually had no impact on Darjeeling and surrounding areas. Although there had been some panics, there was no damage to properties other than few cracks in couple of buildings. Roads are all open and life in Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Gangtok are normal. So if you planned a visit to Darjeeling or a trek to Sandakphu, there are no real reasons to cancel or defer that. In fact it can be a great opportunity to get hotel rooms in affordable rates at such high season as some panicked tourists changed their travel plans.

Continuing from my earlier post where I had promised a great self guided tour of St. George (Bermuda) .... here it is. Plan for some 2 hours in St. George. First buy a day minibus ticket ($6) at the Visitors Information Center located at Kings Square. You can hop on and off any number of times and the minibus operates every 30 minutes.

Board the bus from Kings Square (or even the St. George's ferry dock). Get off at the Unfinished Church on top of Government Hill Road and see the wonderful ruins of Gothic architecture. Next stop is the lovely Tobacco Bay Beach and the nearby Achilles Bay Beach and the historic St. Catherine's Fort. Board the minibus again and you will reach another historic British fort known as Gates Fort which was built to protect the narrow channel Town Cut which ships use to enter St. George's harbor. Nearby is Alexandra Battery, and below that the Building Bay beach which is famous for the plentiful sea glasses found here. The minibus returns to Kings Square via Cut Road.

For a complete description of the tour and the attractions along the way, visit the link below:

Visiting Bermuda? Recently beach buses have been introduced in St. George's and St. David's that take you to several lovely beaches and historic forts at the eastern end of the island along with few other attractions. You can buy a day ticket and hop on & hop off the bus any number of times during the day. Great way to do a self guided tour of the beaches and forts. Go through the following link for full info:

Dan B.

Is there a way in Google+ not to be unknowingly part of a group? Or get rid of passengers in the group taking advantage of nobody moderating?

Thank you,

Raj

The summer season has started in Bermuda and cruise ships have already started calling ports in the island. Like every year, the Royal Naval Dockyard has gotten quite busy already. It has come out with a series of weekly activities, events and entertainment programs to be held between May to October in the dockyard. And what more... all these events and programs are free! Great opportunity for cruise passengers and all other visitors to  join family fun activities and events to get a good flavor of the island. Go through the link below for details:

Story
Tagline
Travelling the world, soaking in the experience and sharing the knowledge.
Introduction
The passion to travel changed my life altogether and I quit my corporate job to become a full time Travel Writer several years back. This was probably the most difficult but the greatest decision I had ever taken in my life. While I love to visit new places around the world, three destinations have special place in my heart, and they are Bermuda (the tiny island in north Atlantic), Darjeeling (the charming hill town & a district in north Bengal of India), and Langkawi (another tiny island on Andaman sea in Malaysia). I visit these places more often than the others, write about them and help visitors to these places make best out of their vacations.
