Leaving behind cheese-filled deep pan pizza for the lure of ginger-ale spiked rum, this London born blogger has treated his online writings as diary, a friend and a refuge for over 10 years. It began whilst he was a single bloke, living in the “wacky, yet inspirational country of America, and [then] to the beautiful yet often peculiar island of Bermuda, now with a family for company”. Full of the anecdotal musings of a hardline Charlton supporter, this blog is sure to bring a smile to any football fan moving overseas.
Chris is an English-born journalist and editor who has lived and worked in Bermuda since 1982, and as a result has long gone native. Sharing his heart and spending too much time on the internet (by his own admission) Chris shares his elegantly expressed thoughts by shooting the breeze on his favorite topics – football, music, movies, history, walking, reading, cycling, skiing, travelling, good food and more football (which goes to show that you can take the Englishman out England but their love for footie is soul-deep.)
Bermuda Blue is a more business focused blog – but with Bermuda renowned financial services Bermuda Blue is a fascinating read for any expat with an opinion on current events and looking to move to the island nation.
