Ever since reading Mary Ann Shaffer’s The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, I’ve wanted to visit Guernsey. It just fit perfectly to my mind’s eye depiction of idyllic for one thing. Furthermore, I became intrigued with Guernsey’s history. It was one of many history lessons that I did not learn in school. The islands were occupied by the Germans in World War II, from June 30, 1940 until May 9, 1945.
The latter date is now celebrated as a national holiday.

Located between England and France, Guernsey is part of The Channel Islands. And, although they are closer to France than to England, they are part of the British Crown. The islanders speak both English, something for me, and French, but the cuisine is mostly French, something for my husband. The island is said to have a southern France or Italian feel to it, something for both my husband and me.
The island’s main town is Saint Peter Port. The climate is mild, and there are varying picturesque landscape ranges to explore.
Anyone else want to go?
