Travel Guide

Guernsey

Jeanne returns to Guernsey, the land of her birth:

The salt-laden air enveloped her like an old and trusty coat. Taking a deep breath, she closed her eyes and was a child again, playing on the beach with her parents

The place has changed:

“She shuddered as she leant against the railings and Guernsey came into full view. While the ferry headed towards St Peter Port harbour, she felt as if she were apporaching a strange, unknown country rather the land of her birth. The whole of the northern sea front from Les Banque into St Peter Port, had been transformed. Towering edifices of granite and glass had replaced the old, tired, mish-mash of warehouses, scruffy hotels and shops. With a gasp, she realised that even the elegant landmark of the Royal Hotel had been supplanted.”

“It was as if a natural disaster had occurred, flattening the old front and replacing it with buildings more reminiscent of London that of the parochial island she remembered. She’d never have though that Guernsey would move into the twenty first century with such a bang.”
