Find Fun, Sun in Bermuda

'U' Student Follows
Sun t oYugoslavia

Are you tired of slush and snow,I
of frozen fingers and wet feet, of
chilly winds that somehow man-
age to invade your extra-insulated'
ski parka, of getting up in the
morning when its still dark, of
cars that won't start, or, if they
do start, stall at the first stop'
sign? If this describes you, friend,
then forget all the wearies of
winter and follow the sun!
One of the greatest places to
find the summer season in De-
cember is the enchanting island of
Bermuda. Pink-tinted beaches,
tantalizing clear blue water, and
warm exhilarating sun are only
the first discoveries of an adven-
turesome college student in Ber-
muda. There's no end to fun on
the water with water skiing and

sailing (tip: try a moonlight sail
for romance-just don't capsize
the boat!), and skin diving will
open up an underwater tropical
paradise for anyone with nerve to
invade the territory of the fish.
Explore and find wide beaches,
flecked with coral, or a cove where
two can hide out and bask in the
However, the excitement in Ber-
muda doesn't die with the sun, for
by night this twenty-one mile is-
land becomes a pleasure party.
The hotels, night clubs, restau-
rants, and pubs vie wit hone an-
other to wine, dine, and entertain.
Calypso singers, steel bands with
rhythms to quicken your pulse,
and dancing to every type of mu-
sic are only some of the pleasures
you'll encounter.
The magnificent shops of Ber-
muda are showcases for interna-
tional bargains, and you'll soon
realize why Bermuda is known as
the "world's shop window" when
items from England, Scotland,
France, Switzerland, Germany,
and Italy confront you. To prepare
for the coming semester, you may
want to take advantage of the
tremendous savings in the liquor

department. For example, a gallon
of 20-year-old Scotch whiskey,
including duties, will cost you
$24.00 less in Bermuda than if you
had bought it in the U.S.
Bermuda, even though it's an
entirely different world, is easily
accessible by air or water. Round
trip air fare is around $120, de-
pending on your point of depar-
ture. Living costs can be moderate
or lavish, depending on what you
are looking for. There axe great
hotels with beaches, pools, sports,
and shopping, all self-contained.
Bermuda guest houses where you
enjoy a casual life, or housekeep-
ing apartments and individual cot-
tages to rent, with maid service,
no less! No matter what you
choose, you can't possibly help
but have a good time in Bermuda.
The best way to makearrange-
ments is through a travel bureau,
They can give specific information
and also take the burden of mak-
ing reservations off your shoul-
ders. There are many good travel
agencies in this area who would
be only too happy to help you
plan a vacation in the sun which
can be the exciting, fun experi-
ence you're looking for.

-but you "ain't seen nothin' till
you've visited Portoroz, Yugosla-
via. A year and a half ago we
spent a day at this scenic resort
town on the Mediterranean. White
sand, a hot sun, baby blue sky, and
invigorating air create the de-
lightful setting which is popular
with those who have discovered it.
Sunday morning we drove from
Trieste, Italy (the roads are quite
acceptable), and had no trouble
crossing behind this "iron cur-
tain," which seems to have lost
some of its ferrous qualities since
the phrase was coined by Wins-
ton Churchill. Incidentally, the au-
thorities require a valid visa for
every American citizen who cross-
es the border. A relaxful peace
dominates the area. People who
bask in the blazing sun seem ob-
livious to the world around them
but, as I was later to learn, they
are aware of their places in that


Yugoslavia is extremely back-
ward as compared to our level of
affluence although Premier Tito
claims that his brand of socialism
is most progressive. We found that
ordinary beach towels were scarce
and highly priced, restaurant fa-
cilities were far from what we ex-
pect, and, to our amazement, a
brand new motel boasted toilets
of the American 1920 vintage! The
country is not too economically
stable, for the unit of money, the
dinar (400 or 500 to a dollar), was
devaluated by 25 percent the day
of our visit.
People in Portoroz are mostly
Yugoslavians who enjoy their hol-
idays at this vacation-type atmos-
phere. They are personable, inter-
esting, and arbit shy to speak to
foreigners but many of them un-
derstand or speak English. We
met two boys who were students
at what we would consider the col-
lege level. They seemed happy
enough but they did say that they
wanted to leave the country. Their
futures seemed dim unless they
could escape from a system which
was making little social or eco-
nomic progress because of limited
political freedom. The prospect of
being unable to utilize their tal-
ents concerned the boys, and they
discussed the problem with us at
length. Yugoslavia is hampered by
its form of government; and we
found widespread dissatisfaction
among the people for their form of
government and the mode of liv-
ing it offered them.
There's something sensational in
visiting a Communist (or socialist)
country for the American. His sen-
ses of curiosity and fear and dan-
ger are stimulated-intrigue and
mystery fill his soul. Throw in the
possibility of enjoying the sun and
all its embellishments in style a
little less than that at the French
Riviera or Ostia near Rome, and
one cannot help but head straight
for Portoroz, Yugoslavia. Perhaps
it should be labeled OFF THE
BEATEN PATH, but as far as we'-
re concerned, it's another vacation
area which is unique in its merits
and is on the right path-for one
who follows the sun.
