If there was one thing that you wish you had known about living in Bermuda before you arrived and started to settle in, what would it be?

My daughter moved to Bermuda last May. She was due to come home at the beginning of this August, but at the last minute she changed her mind and re-upped for at least another year! The detractors for her are the expense of living on the island, she misses driving her car (does not like driving that scooter in the damp and rain all winter) and the small size of this island. After careful consideration, though, the positives outweighed the negatives for her: The beauty of the island, the friendliness of the people (she has made so many friends; we visited recently and everywhere we went people were saying "hello" to her and offering us to visit with them...I don't think I have ever been to a friendlier place!), the climate (even in "winter"), the opportunities her job offers.

It's hard to find things here. Sometimes you'll hit 4 supermarkets to find the ingredients for 1 recipe.

It's also very expensive to live here. Most people underestimate that.

how EXPENSIVE it is. I know things cost a lot more as compared to the state but it is outrageous. Also, I have had trouble making friends. I haven't found people on the island to be as friendly as advertised.
