I come from a country with such great importance to me yet it is virtually unknown by most I meet. The island of Bermuda is the stunning place I am fortunate enough to call my home. I laugh at the guesses people take trying to figure out where it is from near the Bahamas all the way to by Australia! This small 21 square mile oasis holds a tremendous variety of beauty from pink sand beaches to winding busy roads. It seems like everything is so normal yet when compared to the States it may not seem so. On my sixteenth birthday I excitedly got my moped license instead of a car. Every kid I knew had a one so it never seemed weird not to drive a car until I came to UGA where no-one could believe I didn't have my license. These sorts of small discrepancies happen more often than I thought they would since my time starting university. I have traveled to the States very often as half of my family live in Boston but I never really noticed the vast differences. I guess people assume everyone around them are alike so when one person is just slightly abstract, it really throws their mind in a whirlwind.
