Bermuda instils pure jealousy from my colleagues at NOCS let alone my friends from other universities, Bermuda was the highlight of my degree. It was so refreshing to get submerged for science and interact with our course material so closely, using technical equipment like photo transects and video sledges. And of course who doesn’t enjoy blue lagoons, underwater cave systems, glorious beaches and sunshine. It was epic!
