Dreaming of...... Guernsey

So I've almost finished reading The Guernsey Potato Peel and Literary Society - highly recommend it - and I have fallen in love with Guernsey just as Juliet Ashton did.
This may sound funny to some of you Northern Hemisphereians, but before reading this book, I had never heard of Guernsey - and it's always a great feeling when you find out a place you read about in a fiction novel actually exists.
Now that I have Googled Guernsey extensively, it's officially been put on the Big OE list. I think part of my Big OE with my partner will have to include going on a wild goose chase around the places I have read about in books, such as Culloden, which features in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series and is apparently quite a moving place.

So before I post my review of The Guernsey Literacy and Potato Peel Society, I thought I would share some beautiful images of this beautiful place that I found on my Googling expedition.

  1. How funny that I would read your post as I am doing exactly what you did--googling Guernsey while reading the The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society! It does look like a beautiful place and I hope you get to visit some day!
