Mark Twain #Bermuda Travels 1867-1920

‘Ever The Twain Shall Meet'” – Mark Twain in Bermuda

Between 1867 and 1910 Mark Twain visited Bermuda seven times for a total of 187 days.

Twain penned there is just enough of whispering, breeze, fragrance of flowers, and sense of repose to raise one’s thoughts heavenward; and just enough amateur piano music to keep him reminded of the other place.…

Twain’s writings extoll the peaceful beauty of the island as well as its sometimes dissonant charm, and were published between 1877–78 in The Atlantic Monthly as “Some Rambling Notes of an Idle Excursion.” Guided by these words, Ever the Twain Shall Meet takes visitors on a journey through Twain’s visits to Bermuda, retracing the steps to his favorite haunts and places of inspiration.
