England Travel Guide

My (Sabrina’s) mother is an Anglophile. While my classmates were watching Friends, Sex in the City, Dawson’s Creek, etc… My mom and I were watching Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Keeping up Appearances, Midsomer Murders, and every British period drama ever made. So, I didn’t understand pop culture references for a good decade. While my friends ate after school snacks, I savored afternoon tea. Earl grey always. I traveled to England with my parents twice when I was in elementary school. But, alas, all I can remember is a wildlife park and our particularly cozy B&B in the Cotswolds. Fast forward 20+ years, and I finally returned to England. I’m a bit predisposed to liking England (thanks Mom), but I wasn’t prepared to fall in love with England. And, that I did. Kati and I spent a few weeks in Southern England, exploring Brighton and the South Downs. And, then we took a most marvelous road trip through Cornwall. My life changed. Now, I’m plotting our return.

Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk - Top Experiences in Engalnd

Walking from Seaford to Eastbourne: Seven Sisters Cliffs Hike

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs stretching from Cuckmere Haven to Birling Gap in East Sussex, England. These white cliffs along the English Channel are one of Southern England’s most striking landscapes. The best way to experience the Seven Sisters cliffs is by walking the coastal trail from Seaford to Eastbourne. The 21.9 km (13.6 miles) Seven Sisters walk is rather easy, though not flat.

We wrote a guide about this spectacular day hike. Read Next: Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk.

  • This summer, we’ve received so many emails from our blog readers who are planning trips to the Julian Alps. It’s been so much fun helping fellow hikers with their trip planning. The trickiest part about offering hiking advice is that each person has a different understanding of what an “easy,” “moderate” or “challenging” hiking trail is. What’s challenging for one person may be easy for another. So, as we strive to offer responsible advice, we definitely struggle with making concrete recommendations. Without knowing someone personally, it’s difficult to access whether a certain trekking route is suitable for them. We’re trying our best. We created a Julian Alps hiking guide to make planning a trip here a bit easier. Check it out (link in bio). #slovenia
  • Hoping this adventure never ends. 💫
  • 5 things you have to do when you visit Cornwall: (1) Eat a Cornish Pasty; (2) Visit Tintagel - the alleged birthplace of King Arthur; (3) Walk a section of the South West Coast Path; (4) Walk to St. Michael‘s Mount during low tide; (5) Savor a Cornish cream tea - afternoon tea with scones, clotted cream and jam. #england
  • August is here, which means hiking season is in full swing. We have a few more treks planned for this summer. Can you guess where we’re hiking next?
  • Stepping into a poetic world of cliffs, waves and ruins. #cornwall
  • Here‘s one of our favorite pics from the Venediger High Trail in Hohe Tauern National Park, Austria. We started the 6-day hike in Virgental Valley and ended in Gschlosstal Valley in East Tyrol. You can hike in either direction, but our way (south route) is easier and leaves the best for last. #lovetirol
