Going into Hamilton by local bus (1 hour - but a great way to see the real Bermuda) - and coming back by ferry (faster than a speeding bullet) - was abit of fun. Met up with some locals (ex-pats from America) - who told us how expensive it is to live on the island, as everything is shipped in, but they still live there. I personally found some great deals in Gibbons where the "locals" shop in - so came out feeling happy. I was abit disappointed in the Marks & Spencers or M&S (I'm an ex-pat) - the food section was meager - but according to staff there - in December 2014 - it will be expanded (and they're excited as well). As one staff member said to me - they are an out island - so they are kind of overlooked. Sad. I found clothing items there quite expensive compared to Gibbons.
