Jersey: In Photos

As I child I would always write a diary whilst on holiday, something which actually I loved doing. So this blogpost is taking me back to those memories. It will act as a diary, one day I'm sure I'll look back at my blog and feel pleased that I've saved these memories somewhere.

We booked Easyjet flights from London Gatwick pretty much on a whim a couple of months ago. We stayed in a Bed & Breakfast, Ocean Walk, on the sea front of St. Aubin's Bay. Just a 10-15 minute walk to St Aubin's harbour where you'll find some lovely restaurants. 

I've fallen in love - with the sea, boats and harbours. It's a far cry from London, but I absolutely fell for the quaint harbours and seaside. The best way to do it (in my opinion) is to hire a car and then you're free to explore the whole island and that is certainly what we did. 
I've prepared a couple of blogposts for the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled. And let the photos commence..

These are some of my favourite photos from our trip of Jersey, stand by for more.
Did You Know? Jersey is on average 2 degrees warmer than the rest of the UK, another reason to visit. It's also on the same latitude as the Champagne region of France, therefore making it a good grape growing climate.
 
Have you been to Jersey?
