Being Elle: We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.

Hello there lovely readers :)

Now as most of you may know, I love to travel & if I have a spare opportunity whether it be for a few days or a few weeks, I have to go somewhere different & 'get lost'. 
Last week I booked a full week off work to enjoy some quality time with Adam (boyfriend) but also to see & spend time with family. Now I don't think many of you know this but we have family in Guernsey, who we had not seen in nearly two years!

 Guernsey is one of the Channel Islands off the coast of mainland France, but it is part of the British Isles. I absolutely love everything about the island- the people are genuinely friendly, the scenery is beautiful, the food is fresh & tasty & I love the way of life out there.

Ever since me & Adam started dating nearly 6 years ago (gulp!) we would 'holiday' in Guernsey every single year, visiting his family & enjoying the weather & beaches & everything the island offers- history & all. However the last couple of years we felt like we had seen everything & been everywhere & seen everything we wanted to see, so decided to visit new places.

This is why we decided to visit only for three days to see everybody, as the weather this time of year is windy & cold so not exactly beach weather! Having said that, we both had such a great time that we wanted to stay for longer & will probably be visiting again in the new year. Our time there was the best weather of the week: blue sky but very windy & cold! We spent most of our time driving around the coastline of the island with the windows down, but also we visited the town, started Christmas shopping, ate some amazing food, spent time with the family, walked along the beaches & generally chilled out!

Much Love,
