BERMUDA HOLIDAYS > CARIBBEAN
Whitewashed stone cottages, proper gentlemen in jackets, ties and shorts, beautiful beaches,
cricket matches and afternoon tea.
Bermuda is a independent Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom and contrary to common conception, not in the Caribbean. The western Atlantic Ocean, 580
nautical miles east of North Carolina, is where you will find Bermuda on the map!
Bermuda is an archipelago consisting of seven main islands and many smaller islands and islets lying about
1,050 kilometers (650 mi.) east of North Carolina. The main islands--with hilly terrain and subtropical climate--are clustered together and connected by bridges; they are considered to be a
geographic unit and are referred to as the Island of Bermuda.

The Bermuda Triangle is located inside the segment of the Atlantic Ocean bordered by Bermuda, Puerto Rico

The Bermuda Triangle legend really began in earnest on December 5, 1945, with the famed disappearance of
Flight 19. Five Navy Avenger bombers mysteriously vanished while on a routine training mission, as did a rescue plane sent to search for them -- six aircraft and 27 men, gone without a trace.

Cuisine - Bermudian Foods / Recipes
Bermudian food, like that of many of the Caribbean islands, is the product of the combined influences of England, Africa and native cultures.
Margarita - Bermudian Menu
Bermuda has a few very typical dishes, the king of which is the Bermudan Fish Chowder, which of course I
had to serve. Other types of seafood, such as conch, mussels, shark and other fish are also quite typical though I skipped them as I didn't want to serve a seafood-only menu.

History of Bermuda
Bermuda's History - Wikipedia
Bermuda was discovered in 1503 by a Spanish explorer, Juan de Bermudez, who made no attempt to land
because of the treacherous reef surrounding the uninhabited islands. Bermuda was first settled in 1609 by
shipwrecked English colonists headed for Virginia. The group of colonists was led by Sir George Somers,
and stranded on the islands for 10 months. Their reports aroused great interest about the islands in England...
Slaves from Africa were brought to Bermuda soon after the colony was established. The slave trade was
outlawed in Bermuda in 1807, and all slaves were freed in 1834. Today, about 60% of Bermudians are of African descent...
The Story of Bermuda and Her People - William Sears Zuill
This small group of islands in the Western Atlantic was formed by volcanic eruption 100 million years ago, but
it was uninhabited until the early 16th century. Its story only begins 400 years ago when the thankful
survivors of the "Sea Venture" staggered ashore to form the basis of the first settlement. This book
chronicles the lives of the Bermudian people throught the excitements of ships and salt, from privateers and
blockade-running in the earlier days to the more sedate present-day occupations of one of the world's most
attractive tourist and business centres. Of major importance has been the island's unique geographical position which has more than once made Bermuda a place of great strategic value.
