Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory off the east coast of the United States, with one of the largest expat communities in the world, in terms of percentage of the total population. Since the island is extremely small – 53.2 square kilometers, with a population of around 64,000 – the expat community is very close-knit. As a result, it’s difficult to go for too long without bumping into someone you know, or at least meeting someone who knows a friend of yours.   more ...

Bermuda: a Taste of England in the Sunshine

Wednesday June 05, 2013 (22:02:34)

Situated about 640 miles east of North Carolina, the islands of Bermuda enjoy a subtropical climate and were, throughout the 20th century, a perennial contender in the "world's highest GDP" contest. The island's positioning in the ominously named "hurricane belt," and in the legendary Bermuda Triangle, has not provided enough of a deterrent for a steady stream of new arrivals to the island. For British nationals in particular, the islands have a special attraction. Developed nations featuring an expatriate community of Brits may now be the rule rather than the exception, but not all such nations offer that rarest of commodities in "Old Blighty" itself: regular sunshine with tropical breezes.

Another reason for its attraction to British citizens is the cultural familiarity that comes from the islands' history as a British settlement from the early 17th century, during the reign of King James I. A distinctly English character lives on in many aspects of island life: English is the official language here, and, unlike in Jamaica, there is a surprising absence of local creoles or 'pidgin' English (the other major European languages remain a minority language to keep the tourist industry smoothly functioning). Rest assured, the English language spoken is not of the North American variety either: for example, government officials' names are generally prefaced with "the Honorable…", and they are referred to as MPs rather than as congressmen.   more ...
