It’s been almost a month since I came back from my Europe trip but I still can’t help to reminisce and still feel the excitement of what a great experience I had. Travel to me is like an itch that I got to scratch. I just can’t stop. Life is just so much fun and enjoyable when you travel. The experience is just once in a lifetime ecstasy. Each travel is unique and beautiful.
Why did I choose late August to travel? The airfare is unbelievably way low and inexpensive and less tourists or crowds to deal with. As much as possible I prefer to travel with ease and less chaotic.
My first stop – Jersey, United Kingdom. This is where my sister Millie lives with her loving husband Graham. Two amazing couple, with so much love to share with me and my two friends who were very happy to join me on this travel journey and discovery. Here is “Elizabeth Castle, a castle and tourist attraction, on a tidal island within the parish of Saint Helier, Jersey. Construction was started in the 16th century when the power of cannonmeant that the existing stronghold at Mont Orgueil was insufficient to defend the Island and the port of St. Helier was vulnerable to attack by ships armed with cannon. “(Wikipedia)
Georgian House – see below
To walk through the front door of 16 New Street is to step back in time and experience life in Regency Jersey. With evocative sounds and smells, you will be transported to a time of elegance when gentlemen smoked clay pipes, ladies drank priceless tea and the threat of French invasion was always a hot topic of conversation. The Georgian House is open on Weds, Thurs and Fri from the beginning of April until the end of October.
Mont Orgueil (Jerriais: ‘Mount Pride’ or ‘Haughty Mount’) is a castle in Jersey that overlooks the harbour of Gorey. It is also called Gorey Castle by English-speakers, and lé Vièr Châté (the Old Castle) by Jèrriais-speakers.
St Brelade’s Church is one of the twelve ancient parish churches in the island of Jersey. AD 1035
