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

  • Alpine Pasture Safety in the Alps 🏔🥾🐄🐑🐐

Traditional alpine farming (“alpine transhumance”) is a type of pastoralism in which livestock are seasonally moved to higher elevation mountain pastures in summer and to lower elevation valley pastures in the winter.

For centuries, transhumance has sculpted the landscape of the Alps. Forests have been felled for grazing cattle and sheep, creating large open meadows at high altitudes.

The Alps are synonymous with verdant alpine pastures as much as snow-capped peaks.

Hiking trails and cycling routes often bisect alpine pastures where cattle, sheep, goats, horses, and donkeys freely graze.

It’s really important that you don’t disturb grazing animals (especially cows). As silly as this might sound, your life is at stake. These pastures are not a petting zoo.

There have been a number of accidents and deaths in the last few years because people have provoked, pet, and/or disturbed grazing cattle.

  • April is one of the best months to hike the Fisherman’s Trail in Portugal. Recently, I was interviewed about our experience hiking this coastal trail on the podcast Trails Worth Hiking (link in bio). The interview starts 10 minutes into the episode.

The original trail starts in Porto Covo and ends in Odeceixe (4 stages). Last year, the Rota Vicentina Association extended the trek to Lagos in Algarve (13 stages total).

We’re dying to return and hike the extended version.
