England Travel Guide

My  mother is an Anglophile. While my classmates were watching Friends, Sex in the City, Dawson’s Creek, etc… My mom and I were watching Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Midsomer Murders, and every British period drama ever made. So, I didn’t understand pop culture references for a good decade. While my friends ate after school snacks, I savored afternoon tea. Earl grey always. I traveled to England with my parents twice when I was in elementary school. But, alas, all I can remember is a wildlife park and a particularly cozy B&B in the Cotswolds.

Fast forward 20+ years, and I finally returned to England. I’m a bit predisposed to liking England (thanks Mom), but I wasn’t prepared to fall in love with England. And, that I did.

Kati and I spent a few weeks in Southern England, exploring Brighton and the South Downs. And, then we took a most marvelous road trip through Cornwall. My life changed. A year later, we returned to Cornwall for the whole month of May (guides coming soon).

These white cliffs along the English Channel are one of Southern England’s most striking landscapes. The best way to experience the Seven Sisters cliffs is by walking the coastal trail from Seaford to Eastbourne. The 21.9 km (13.6 miles) Seven Sisters walk is rather easy, though not flat.
