Looking back on what you would have brought to the island, would anyone have shipped their plasma TV and home theater system?

Hi, we moved here in August and had the same conundrum...I would say no to the TV. The voltage is different and not everything is guaranteed to work even with transformers (e.g. my GHD straighteners worked but not my electronic toothbrush or hairdryer). You can buy lots of quality goods second hand on emoo - we bought an LG 42inch TV for $500 from someone leaving the island. We shipped 20 boxes of 'stuff' this included my favourite brand of bedding, Cruseut pans, pictures, clothes, kitchen stuff and a few personal items (including lots of my favourite, branded toiletries that I knew I would not be able to buy here). Good luck with the move!
Lovely upper 1bedroom 1 bathroom apartment for rent. Suitable for one quiet mature person.

I have accepted an offer to work in bermuda, 85k plus bouns.
Im coming alone, and is that enough to survive on the island, i will also be paying for housing and travel

Thanks for the reply, so i guess i still have some left over for the happy hour and to take in sights and sounds of the Island
Short answer is yes.
You will need up to $2500 per month for housing if living alone, $400 for mobile, internet and TV, $500 per month for gas, electricity. which leaves you with enough for food and clothes.
Plus capital outlay of $3K for moped or twice that for car.

Ok , so i have been working up to moving to Bermuda for the last year , my ex partner came over last year , i was planned to join him later this year, we have now separated, i still really want to come to Bermuda as i have a job lined up and have worked extremely hard to get certain Qualifications. Ok so in your opinions, is this wise ,is it likely to see alot of each other, i have been to Bermuda a few times this past year so i realise the size. I would love nothing more than to come to work in Bermuda for lifestyle, culture and definately the job role but as is expected wouldnt like to bump into the ex partner everyday. Is this more than likely ?
Wish I could be more encouraging, but not only are you likely to see your ex on the street, in the bank, definitely out at nights, but Bermuda is well known for loving to gossip .. one of the things that drove me nuts was that each evening, my (now) ex would ask me who the man I had lunch with at abc restaurant was. You need a thick skin and don't care attitude to get along there.
