I am thrilled to welcome Zoë Dawes of TheQuirkyTraveller.com to EuroTravelogue to recount her quirky chronicles of her voyage to Guernsey in the Channel Islands. Ever since I first read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"—an all-time favorite of mine—I have been intrigued and fascinated by the Channel Islands especially that of Guernsey because of its leading role in the book. But then I heard about Zoë's what was then her upcoming trip, and I knew that I needed to follow every step of her journey so she could bring it and its people to life for me even more than the book. Her first-hand accounts of the island, small on size, 30 sq. mi. or 70 sq. km., but big on history and charm, are chronicled below. I hope you enjoy your journey through Guernsey as much as I did and be sure to read more about Zoë at the end of the article.
