Take My Hand to Hamilton
Hey loves, I am so sorry it took me so long to update about my Bermuda trip. Not only did I have a crazy week (who knew unpacking and getting your life back together could take so long) but I had some wonderful friends come in to visit as well. Therefore, I spent most of my time socializing and going out with them.
Never the less, I wanted to write the post I promised which is about my second favorite place in Bermuda, the lovely town of Hamilton! Not only is this place full with awesome shops and restaurants but similar to St. George, it's like you're transformed into a whole new world. My favorite attribute that Hamilton seems to have is the colorful housing. As you walk through the streets you cannot help but stare, in awe, of the vast pastel colored buildings and shops that seem to go on for days, which, we all know is a shoppers wildest dream.
Unfortunately, we went to Hamilton during one of the biggest times of the year, the cup match, therefore a lot of the shops were sadly closed. I have never seen such dedication to a sport, it seemed like a ghost town, as we walked through the ancient architecture and brick grounds. The whole city is like something you've read about in old romance novels and you cannot help but fall in love with it's timeless beauty.
For all you Game of Thrones fans I couldn't help but dress in what seemed to look like ancient garb, in a wrap dress, from Urban Outfitters. It reminded me a bit of something Daenerys would wear in fact while we were walking we heard someone chant mother of dragons to us, kind of made me feel a bit excited. (The nerd in me loved it)
Due to it being the Cup Match we didn't get to eat or go to a lot of places because most places were closed. However, my group and I have a weird obsessions of eating fast food in different countries. When I went to Ireland a year ago I had the McDonalds there which was drastically different then here. Of course we had to continue our tradition and we luckily found a KFC, one of the only fast food places on the island, and luckily it was open. Their menu and pricing is way different then here in America. I really enjoyed the Hawaiian burger which has a phenomenal sauce. For all you picky eaters out there (my brother is one) some of the items still stay the same. So if you're feeling a bit home-sick and want to have a reminder of the states there's always little fast food gems you can find on the island.
I truly love traveling because there is nothing like taking a step back, enjoying someplace new, and experiencing different lands. You don't feel as fulfilled unless you look through life from a different lens. Bermuda was seriously a dream and I recommend anyone who has a taste for adventure to go.
I am looking forward to hopefully returning there one day. I finish off this post with a quote: "Where ever you go becomes a part of you somehow" Anita Desai-
Bermuda has left a piece of itself inside of my heart. I will always have a love for its beautiful rose gold beaches, endless days of sunshine, and a culture that makes a home inside of your heart.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read about my Bermudan travels. I hope these posts have inspired you to take that next step and hopefully get to witness it for yourself!
Until next time.
