Bermuda Day and Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum
World Footprints seeks to connect you to the great places in this world. Today, we travel to a destination that is near and dear to our hearts–Bermuda. We will celebrate the national holiday of Bermuda Day, the music, history and traditions with our island brothers and sisters.
Bermuda Day is traditionally the first day of the year that residents will go into the sea. It is also traditionally the first day on which Bermuda shorts are worn as business attire . Many people also see this Day as the first day on which they can go out on the water after the winter — consequently there is always a rush to get one’s boat ‘in de water’ before Bermuda Day.
Then, we’ll travel to Paget parish on Bermuda and introduce you to a fantastic new property–Newstead Belmont Hills, a golf and spa resort. This property blends a boutique hotel with the leisure of a luxury resort.
Finally, we’ll hop back across the pond to Birmingham, Alabama where we’ll visit the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum–home to one of the world’s largest motorcycle collections. We’ll hear what inspired the museum’s founder, George Barber, to preserve America’s motorcycle heritage.
