    Victor Hugo lived in Hauteville House between 1856 and 1870. His town house has been preserved as a museum, which captures the French writer's eccentric life with its amazing collection of furniture and artefacts.
    Victor Hugo displayed his father’s family crest but also adopted another Hugo crest as his own.
    He liked the contrast between light and dark and designed rooms to be either light or dark.
    He included many asian decorations throughout the house.

    His two roomed red bedroom was designed for his death. It was never used.

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society novel by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows has drawn visitors to the island to discover the places in the story. The novel is a work of fiction about the German Occupation in Guernsey during WWII but many of the places mentioned are real.

    Déjà vu?

    August 9 in Guernsey ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Wir sind auf Guernsey angekommen 🇬🇬.
    Die Freude ist gross, denn eigentlich ist es unser Hauptreiseziel, wo wir auch die meisten Ferientage verbringen.
    Natürlich stellt sich schon bei der Ankunft die Frage, ob denn diese Insel so gänzlich anders sein kann als Jersey, denn Luftlinie trennen die beiden nur ein paar Kilometer. Sollten wir ein déjà-vu erleben?

    Die Frage kann ganz klar verneint werden:
    - Die Strassen sind auf Guernsey fussgängerfreundlicher
    - Während Jersey mehr Kliffwege besitzt, hat Guernsey mehr Badebuchten.
    - Während St. Helier (Jersey) eher gross ist als Hauptort, so zeigt sich St. Peter Port eher übersichtlich.
    - Guernsey ist die "stürmischere" Insel, es windet meistens.
    - Das ÖV-Netz auf Guernsey ist besser ausgebaut.

    Wir kommen im Bella Luce, unserem Hotel, an und geniessen erstmal den Pool ehe wir dinieren. Das Hotel produziert seinen eigenen Gin - Grund genug uns am ersten Abend für das Gin Tasting anzumelden. Den Hausgin finden wir super.

    Der Rest ist Geschichte 😀

    Nein, Guernsey ist anders - anders als Jersey und anders als England. Wir tauchen ein und lernen Land & Locals kennen.
