We are asked this question almost more than any other by people that we meet on the road… by the end of most of our cycle trips, when asked “where are you from?”, it is usually easier to just lie and reply “England” – this saves the time of drawing maps in the dirt, or in the air, and trying to explain that “no, we don’t actually mean Jersey” (our neighbouring, but entirely separate, sister island).

The short answer to this question is: Guernsey is a British crown dependency not far from the coast of France. The island is pretty small; about 65 kmĀ². Vaguely known from afar for cows, goats, tomatoes, Victor Hugo, and more recently for potato peel pie, and investment funds.

If you are interested to find out a bit more about Guernsey you could always take a look at WikiPedia or search the web.
