Why Travel & Food make the perfect combination

Why Travel & Food make the perfect combination

One of the benefits of being a seasoned traveller is the opportunity to taste different foods from around the world and sample some ‘unusual’ local delicacies.  Here, Tracey Strand of Tailor & Made Travel, explains why she feels that food is an excellent way to of find out about the culture of your next holiday destination.

Tracey says; “I was looking at a short break for later this year and came across Tennerfest. Now as much as I love my food, I am not happy about paying through the nose for it, so after further investigation via the website, it appears these days, you can eat in some fabulous restaurants, for just a tenner!.

“Where? Jersey & Guernsey. When? 6 weeks from the 1st October 2019.

“The Channel Islands fixed price food festival brings people to the island when the main tourists have gone. Restauranteurs create ‘all inclusive’ food menus for a fixed price, which varies from £10 – £20 per head and offers the finest food at affordable prices.

“The festival has been providing excellent value for money for the past 13 years, and plans for 2019 are well under way, and with over 120 restaurants taking part, there is an abundance of choice.

“Jersey is an island with a rich history, and is the only place in the UK the Germans landed, the interesting Jersey War Tunnels tell the full story. Jersey is also the home of Gerald Durrell’s zoo and conservation centre, with amazing scenery around the island.

“Travelling to the Channel Islands is easy, with frequent flights and a regular ferry service.  Once on the islands there is an excellent local transport system.

“Accommodation is plentiful with self catering apartments, small guest houses, and luxurious hotels.

“With this in mind, I have put together an exclusive short break, which departs on the 1st October from Southend Airport. You can spend 4 nights in a 4* hotel in St Helier, Jersey, with breakfast. Also included is a guided day trip around Jersey and afternoon tea at the Radisson hotel. The cost is £429 per person based on two people sharing a room but if travelling solo then the single supplement is £145.”
