Ascent Trip Report

Together with Edith, by car.
After that point, I wondered for the first time, it's not something stupid, what I'm doing here? I drove 1.000 km to Saint Malo by car, then by ferry to Jersey in heavy wind. Most of the passengers were seasick on the ferry. Then we drove in the dark and rain, narrow roads with left-hand traffic. Come on top of a hill, beside the road, mud, dark, windy. Alighting, photograph, continue ... what the hell am I doing here? Now I'm on Guernsey in the hotel and I'm still nauseous from the passage by ferry. But after the first beer I think: OK nice trip that, let's go soon searching for a ferryboat to Sark Island.
Business as usual...
From harbor to Jersey Highpoint and back under one hour.
