To me one of the best things of travel is doing things I’ve never done before. We came across a deal on TravelBird that included ferry tickets and hotel accommodations and jumped right in! It was one of the best holidays we’ve had – the farms were vast and neat, the food was delicious (we tried fish and chips by the sea, steak and ale pie at a local pub, English breakfast at the hotel, cottage pie, Sunday roast, scones at the local tea room and of course we had lots of tea!) and the people were super friendly. I was ecstatic to be able to speak English, listen to the radio and watch tv. It had been a while since I’d been to an English speaking country. Plus, we were binge watching Downton Abbey at the time and that gave an extra charm to the trip.

Pleasant surprises, like a sunny day at charming Hastings.
This abbey was built as a memorial to the dead of the 1066 Battle of Hastings, after which William the Conqueror became king of England. If you want to know more, click here.
