Hi I am Jo, a Silver Accredited Tour Guide based in Guernsey, Channel Islands. (49 29’22” N 2 32’41″W if you want the exact science).
I was fortunate enough to be raised in Guernsey and, I haven’t left since. I love my island home and, always feel privileged to be able to share some of it’s unique character with visitors and local residents alike. No specialism as such, I just enjoy the island and, think it has a very unique history.
Outside of researching & showing people my beautiful island home, I have worked within the Guernsey Finance Industry for over 30 years, I am now a self employed consultant. I love my family, my cats and my friends (not necessarily in that order). I love to take off in my campervan and see the world off of the rock (mostly France), I like to crochet, play ukulele, swim in the sea, try and keep my garden under control, read, write poetry and short stories and paint pretty pictures. I am a crazy lady on a push bike, I enjoy wine & gin and, love socializing with family and friends……I also go to the gym but pleasure is probably too strong a word for that.
I have a keen interest in local politics, I am a Douzenier (Councillor) in Guernsey’s largest Parish (by land mass, 4th by population) – Castel and, a Committee member of Women in Public Life, a group established to encourage and support females interested in standing for public roles.
This is also a lifestyle blog, so as well as Guernsey and tours, all of the above will often feature in my posts.
