Ah, the beautiful tropical island paradise of Bermuda!
Now, I'm from the West Coast, so all I knew about Bermuda before I moved to Florida was that it was one of the Caribbean Islands.
You know, like…
Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo.
Aruba, Jamaica, ooh, I wanna take you
to BERMUDA, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go…
Know what I mean?
Well, today's geography question is whether you'd be able to pick out Bermuda on a map of the Caribbean Islands:
Not quite as easy as it looks, is it? That was certainly the conundrum I was faced with the first time I actually tried to find it on a map like the above. Where the hell is it?
Well, the simple solution is to haul out GoogleMaps, do a search and find that rascal:
Ah-ha! Okay, all we have to do now is zoom out a bit…
And a bit more…
And still a bit more…
And STILL a bit more, until finally…
So, which Caribbean Island could that possibly be? Cuba? Haiti? Jamaica?
It's the Caribbean Island of North Carolina!
If you were ever looking to redefine the word "generous", including Bermuda in the Caribbean Islands would certainly work.
Frankly, I'm surprised Iceland didn't claim it.
