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.

Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk - Top Experiences in Engalnd

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 Road Trip - Top Experiences in England - England Travel Guide

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.

Polperro, England Travel Guide
  • The clifftop village of Zambujeira do Mar in Portugal.  This was one of our favorite places along the Rota Vicentina Fisherman’s Trail.  Though driving here is certainly an option, approaching this coastal gem on foot is far more rewarding.  Learn more about this coastal hike on our blog (link in bio).
  • The unforgettable Anaga coastline of Tenerife.  The best places on the island are accessible by foot only. If you’re planning a trip to Tenerife, don’t forget to bring:  1. Hiking Boots (Grade B/C)
2. Polarized sunglasses
3. Day Pack (for water and snacks)
4. Sun protection (sun hat and sun lotion with zinc oxide)
5. Hiking pants (for hiking in Teide National Park) and shorts (for hiking in Anaga).

  • The longer we travel, the more we want to return to the same places.  Our wanderlust is almost tempered (or is that age?). We definitely get excited about new destinations. But, we’re even more excited about returning to mountains, cities and regions we know and love.  Soon, we’re heading back to Flanders and NRW and we couldn’t be more ecstatic.  Places we long to return to: Istanbul, Julian Alps, Norway, Puglia, Canary Islands.  What places do you want to revisit?  @visit_tenerife | @spain
  • The very first hut to hut hike we did was in the Sexten Dolomites in Northern Italy.  In some ways it ruined us. In the Dolomites, you don’t just get perfectly positioned Rifugios surrounded by epic scenery. You get 4-course meals, wine, espresso, saunas and whatever your heart desires in these high-elevation huts.  If that sounds like something you‘d be into, read our best treks in Europe guide (link in bio).
