England Travel Guide

My (Sabrina’s) 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, Keeping up Appearances, 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 our 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. Now, I’m plotting our return.

The English are not a very spiritual people, so they invented cricket to give them some idea of eternity.

Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk, East Sussex, England

Walking from Seaford to Eastbourne: Seven Sisters Cliffs Hike

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs stretching from Cuckmere Haven to Birling Gap in East Sussex, England. 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.

We wrote a guide about this spectacular day hike: Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk

 
Cornwall, England

Road Tripping around Cornwall

Forming the south-west tip of England, the county of Cornwall is defined by rugged cliff lines, darling fishing villages, and secret coves. As you explore this region, you might feel like you’re stepping into a historical film or high fantasy novel. It’s that bewitching. The best way to experience Cornwall is on a road trip.

  • Julian Alps, Slovenia.

Three years ago, we hiked hut-to-hut from Vršič Pass to Lake Bohinj, a trip which cemented our love for this region. We’ve revisited every year since, unable to resist the call of these gorgeous limestone mountains.

Have you hiked in the Julian Alps?
  • 5 things to do before going on a hut-to-hut hike:

1. Download a few books on your Kindle or preferred e-reader.

2. Download relevant maps on Map.me, so you can navigate offline.

3. Cut your toe nails.

4. Pack your passport and Alpine Club Membership Card.

5. Print train/transit tickets.

  • Sunrise walk on Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm, Mont Sëuc).

One of the luxuries of staying on the plateau is being able to easily experience sunrise. 

From @hotel_steger_dellai, we set out on an early morning walk, savoring the solitude and stillness of the plateau. It’s the most magical time of day. A few hours later, the same trails are overrun with e-bikes, cyclists, large groups, and even horse-drawn carriages.
  • Rätikon High Trail Circuit in Austria and Switzerland.

We‘d do this hike again in a heartbeat.

What’s the most beautiful hut to hut hike you’ve trekked?
  • Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm) in South Tyrol, Italy, is the largest alpine pasture in Europe. The rolling plateau is home to wonderful huts, hotels, and of course hiking trails. Here are some places/trails we recommend: 

1. Rauchhütte is a gourmet hut well-known for their fine selection of wine and food. This is a great place to eat when hiking the Hans and Paula Steger Trail.

2. Alphorn concert. Each week, an ensemble of alphorn players casually gathers together at a hut on Alpe di Siusi to play. You can show up and listen (no fee/no registration needed). The destination changes each week. You can ask @alpedisiusi.seiseralm when and where the next concert is.

3. Gostner Schwaige (alpine pasture hut). They produce their own dairy products. If you visit, you have to try their Heublütensuppe (hay flower soup).
