Bermuda

1908

In 1908, Mark Twain visited Bermuda’s Crystal Caves.

I started out the day waking up at 0500 to get ready to go to the airport for our Experiential Learning trip. Our flight was at 1030. We arrived at the beautiful Island of Bermuda at 1230.  Actually, it was already 1330 because Bermuda is in the Atlantic Time Zone.  This is the first time I have ever been to a tropical Island.  I can say I am very enthusiastic about this learning experience as well as what lies ahead in this trip. To start out this adventure our field guides led the way for a hike on the Bermuda Railway Trail.  We got to see some very intriguing aspects of Bermuda life. Later in the night we had a lecture done by Dr. Burton and our field guides. I am very excited to…
Today my fellow cadets and I woke up around 0530 to get ready for the day. We all got our final things together and headed out to the bus that was taking us to Logan Airport at 0630. When we arrived at Logan we all got into line to get our passports checked and get our boarding passes. After that, we headed into security. Next, we went to our gate and waited for about two hours. During those two hours we took this time to get coffees and snacks for the plane ride at the stores around our gate. At 0955 we were finally able to board the plane. Upon boarding we all found our seats.  We were finally ready for take off. I stayed awake the whole flight and listened to music. I personally have…
Lots of tired/excited faces at the beginning of the day after loading the luggage onto the coach bus to Boston. 4/C Susan Bird’s (Duxbury, MA) classic excitement on the plane ride to Bermuda. 4/C Justin Campbell (Newton, NJ), 4/C Kaila Collins (Kingston, MA), and 4/C Katherine Gillis (Mattapoisett, MA) on the taxi ride to BIOS with all our luggage!   This morning, the cadets woke up bright and early to load up the bus to Boston. When packing our bags in the compartment under the coach bus, we ran into quite the real-life Tetris game! With all that snorkeling gear, field guides, and rain gear, our bags are puffed to the very max. Even with the slight setback of reorganizing…
Welcome to my blog for the Bermuda Experience! My name is 1/C Megan Laurie and I am the Environmental Operations Officer for this school year at MMA. All those fancy words mean is that I am the cadet in charge of the Marine Science, Safety, and Environmental Protection Major! In our group traveling to Bermuda tomorrow, we have forty-one 4/C cadets, one 3/C cadet, four 1/C cadets, two commuters, and two professors. Today, all the students traveling to Bermuda arrived on campus to start preparing for our big adventure. We could see travelers rolling up with flippers on their backs and sunscreen on the ready! As the rates and I checked in each arrival, all we heard were laughs and all we…
