Living in Bermuda has its perks. Not only does it host some of the world’s finest floating fiestas, but it also gives me access to some pretty cool folks—like travel expert Peter Greenberg, who visited the island last month. He was here recording his weekly radio show and kindly asked me to join the broadcast, which was an absolute pleasure considering we first chatted about ex-pat life in November 2010.
Back then we talked about how to make a Dark n Stormy, my old blog Bermuda Shorts and what it was like to relocate to an island in the middle of nowhere. But three years later my island life has changed significantly. I’m now a busy stay-at-home dad in addition to a journalist, so Peter was curious about family-friendly attractions and popular spots to take the kids (the Bermuda Aquarium Museum & Zoo and Shelly Bay on the calm north shore, for starters). Ever the foodie, Peter also wanted to know where to get a great local dish (tune in for two of my faves in St. Georges) and asked where I’d take him if he didn’t want to go to the beach or another well-known attraction (hint: it’s a brand new 18-hole golf course that you can play in under 30 minutes).
For that last tip you’ll have to stick around till the very end of my interview, which begins at around the 27-minute mark following Peter’s take on the removal of room service from some hotels and an interesting conversation with Wall Street Journal travel editor Scott McCartney. So go ahead and tune in to Peter Greenberg Worldwide, broadcast with yours truly from beautiful Bermuda. Or, you can download the free podcast from iTunes to hear our interview on your mobile device.
