Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

04 guernsey

The third island on my list - Guernsey! Situated off the coast of Normandy, it's a possession of the British Crown. Together with Jersey and a few smaller islands (Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou and Lihou) it forms the Channel Islands.

Big thanks to Sue for sharing this lovely view over the island and the recipe for a traditional dish - Gâche Melée (plus a tip how to improve it: "sprinkle ground cinnamon + sugar on top, before you put it in the oven").

It was also great to get the special Guernsey and Alderney post stamps!

My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
