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.

Our favorite things to see and do
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.

  • Back in January, we traveled to Gran Canaria, the third largest island in the Canary Islands.

Because most visitors choose a single base for their trip to Gran Canaria, there isn’t a lot of helpful information out there about where to stay and how to plan a road trip. 

Of all the trips we’ve planned, this was the most difficult.

Luckily, we had three weeks to properly explore the island’s trails, towns, and roads.

We just published an excellent 7-Day road trip itinerary which connects the best hikes, beaches and villages across Gran Canaria. 

We know it’s early, but if you’re looking for a winter sun destination (late November - late March) with lots of hiking opportunities, check out our itinerary:

  • For years, the Faroe Islands seemed like a mythical archipelago, a destination you couldn’t simply fly to. How could such a wondrous, unspoiled place be real?

It’s real and it’s unbelievable.

The Faroe Islands is made up of 18 volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, between Norway and Iceland.

These finger-shaped, treeless islands are defined by sheer sea cliffs, sculpturesque sea stacks, cascading waterfalls, rugged mountains, and darling fishing villages.

And let’s not forget the turf-roofed houses and puffins.

It’s been a dream come true to visit and hike here.
