Interesting Turn Of Events


Hubby was approached by a head hunter for a job yesterday.... in Bermuda. The wage they offered him was staggering... until you do some research and discover that Bermuda is the most expensive place to live on earth. The cost of living is so high, a loaf of bread is $4-8 US. The average 1 bedroom apartment rents for $2500 per month. And those are the cheap ones. However, the country is stunning, and WARM all year round. Although, aparently the clothes hanging in your closet will grow mold within 10 days if you don't keep your lights on and buy some sort of dehumidifying device.

I was reading the blog of a few Canadians who have relocated to Bermuda for the same kind of job offer, and I have to admit, it's tempting. When else are we going to have the opportunity to pick up and live with a different culture? A chance to see some of the world, even if it's a small piece, (and I mean REALLY small, the whole island is less than 50sq kilometers). I'm torn. Hubby will call today to get some more info. I'll post the updates later!

Photo looks like paradise, but prices read like hell - do the pay packets get counted in millions to balance things out?!

Jewels said...

The pay is six figures... but barely!

Trisha said...

Oh my gosh Jewels! How exciting...I'm sure there are lots of things to consider, but I would totally go for it! Haven't seen you around SW for awhile, but keep us updated! Everyone's been asking about you!

Jewels said...

Hey Trisha!

I haven't been around SW for a while.. I lost my mojo bigtime. I just needed a time out I guess! :)

Sounds like an adventure! I also heard about a gig where you are hired to live in Australia for six months and submit blogs. Just keep the dingos away from the babies.

Jewels, what an exciting time for you. Even if you don't make the change just planning to do it would be fun. Don't forget your cyber friends.

Jerry K, the dingoes never take the babies. Jewels, just think of the fun you could have in Australia and our clothes last longer than 10 days.

Heather said...

Wow, Jewels, how exciting! Packing and sorting ahead, lol! Whatever you do, don't think about shoulds, only think about want tos - follow your instinct and heart. Love thinking of you doing that. Mistra's right, we're with you all the way, there, here, wherever you be.

Jewels said...
