An Airbridge

I have been busy today, not occupied with anything physically productive but researching, planning and eventually booking a little trip for the summer.

It was recently announced that, as both the Isle of Man and Guernsey have been virus free for over 40 days it was safe to introduce an airbridge between the two islands for six weeks over the summer, to give residents of both islands a chance of a break. To visit friends and family or just have a short holiday.

The flights appeared for sale this morning so we grabbed the opportunity to book a week's break, just for a change of scenery.

We are hoping that the weather will be kinder to us down there as our summers are quite often wet and windy.  We have booked a little cottage close to some walking routes and may even hire a couple of bicycles for a day or two for a tour around the quiet Guernsey lanes.

As all other holiday options are off for the remainder of this year, this will be our little treat.

Look out Guernsey, here we come.

  4. Oh you lucky people! Guernsey is beautiful (unless it rains...) We had a number of very happy holidays there until the travel became too much for us. (I don't like flying so we used to go by train and boat and then a hire car when we arrived.) Enjoy your break x

    1. I am looking forward to it. No car hire though, just walking and cycling and the odd taxi!

    1. We have been to Jersey a couple of times, via London, but the door-to-door service to Guernsey sounded too good to miss.

    1. I have only visited once before, and that was twenty years ago for work so didn't get to see much!
