VoM2: Guernsey, Channel Islands

I may have been ambivalent about Jersey, but I’m quite keen on Guernsey! A charming old town, a delightful countryside and simply stunning shorelines. A walker’s paradise! My good friend Betty took the ferry over from England to join me for a few days, and we had a blast riding efficient little buses all over the island to explore a lot of it in a little time.

Besides the lovely setting and scenery, there is quite a bit of ancient history — people have been living on the island for thousands of years — some very interesting WWII history — having been occupied by the German army — and a lot of local folklore. I recommend Guernsey as a worthy destination, and a definite side trip from either England or France!
