Half the country on a bicycle!

I had promised more details regarding the bicycle expedition last weekend, a week has gone by and now I have a scooter and a cycle!
But I keep my word, here is a brilliant (& fantastic, fabulous, awesome etc etc) map I made, that shows the cycle trail we took to ride through half the country :)

Saturday on the island - Biking

We hired bicycles, took a ferry to the western tip of the country and managed to cycle half the country in 5 hours! and all this while drinking in the sights Bermuda had to offer and eating some great food at a beautiful place. Bermuda is a hilly place and we were tired by the end of 5 hours but it was an unmatched experience biking along the coast, and visiting the beaches.
Here are some pictures of the day, as always with Bermuda, there is a lot of blue, lots of water and skies !

Here I stay!!

Bermudian Roofs

All the roofs in Bermuda are white pyramid shaped ones, This helps the Bermudians do some rain water harvesting, they use this water even for drinking at times!
When we landed, we were told, "if someone offers you water to drink, go out and look at their roof, if its white and clean, the water would be good to drink" :)

Oh, and that is indeed a rainbow that greeted me last morning when I walked out of the Hotel !

There is a huuuge cruise ship on my street and other observations in Bermuda...

Oh yes! I walked out of office and lo behold there was a massive "building" right in front of me that had not existed 4 hours ago!

This picture may convey some of the effect it had on us, but its just not enough!!

this ocean Liner is about 8 storeys tall and two city blocks long.

I have been slogging it out for the past 3 days I have been here, but have managed to get a few snaps. Definitely more about the place in the days to come, for now here are some pictures
