What do I need to know before moving to Fairylands?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Fairylands, they said:

"Fairylands is a picturesque and affluent neighborhood located in Pembroke Parish. It is known for its beautiful homes, lush gardens, and stunning views of the Great Sound. Before moving to Fairylands, it's important to know that the cost of living in Bermuda is one of the highest in the world. This is due to the fact that most goods are imported and there is a high demand for housing. The official language in Bermuda is English, so communication should not be a problem for English-speaking expats. However, Bermudians have their own accent and some unique slang, so it might take some time to get used to the local lingo. Bermuda has a subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot, humid summers. It's also in the hurricane belt, so expats should be prepared for the possibility of severe weather, particularly between June and November. Public transportation in Bermuda is reliable and efficient, with a network of buses and ferries that cover the entire island. However, private cars are subject to strict regulations and high import duties, so many residents opt for scooters as their primary mode of transport. Bermuda has a high standard of healthcare, but it can be expensive. Expats should ensure they have comprehensive health insurance to cover any medical costs. The island has a strong economy, largely based on international business and tourism. Job opportunities for expats may be limited and work permits are required. Bermuda has a rich history and vibrant culture, with numerous festivals and events throughout the year. The local cuisine is a blend of British, Caribbean, and Portuguese influences, with seafood being a staple. Finally, Bermudians are known for their friendliness and hospitality. The local community is tight-knit, and newcomers are often welcomed with open arms. However, it's important for expats to respect local customs and traditions," said one expat who made the move to Fairylands.
