A BATH OF CALM AND PEACE

As I told you in my profile page, Lundy is a small island located at the Bristol Channel, strategic place to fight pirates and undesirable people (thanks because they stopped, otherwise...) in the past of course. Now it is a marvelous place where TV, newspapers, internet and even cell phones are proscribed, then when I say calm and peace it is not a simple turn of the language neither an exaggeration. It is real, as a bless for the soul, a remedy for the stress provoked by our hectic modern style of life. Come with me, I'll try to show you a pale idea of the reality.

I guess you have two legs... then, use it for...

...use your legs for the original design purpose. There is no cars in Lundy, exception done for a Land Rover and a crawler used for cargo and luggage transportation. But don't worry, the island is quite small, 4,8 kilometers long by 800 meters wide plenty of astounding views and breathtaking cliffs, then, enjoy your walk!

Of course...

...there is much more than just walk around, for example a fancy pub (the only one) Marisco Tavern, built in 1820, where the warm hospitality is present in each pint of beer. Salud John!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Calm, peaceful, great views, warm hospitality
  • Cons:No cons, if you like just a calm chat with friends and beers
  • In a nutshell:A bless for the soul, paradise of photographers.

      Once at home I asked Manuel what was his fondest memory of this long journey, he answered "Lundy" without hesitation! Can you believe it? I was surprised a lot. So, next time at my home, you just come in, I will have wine enough, multiply those four bottles by ten!

      I kinda like being a "cicerone" in its original sense :-) - "An alternate use of the word is as it pertains to beer. The Cicerone Certification Program, run by Ray Daniels, offers professional credentials for those who sell and serve beer."
