Monday May 23, trip to the Channel Islands to discover Alderney, a wild and little-known island. French people who have fallen in love with this island like to help people discover it.

Rocks that overlook the sea, surrounded by lush vegetation, the island of Alderney is a real corner of paradise for those who are lucky enough to live there. Very close from France, about 12 kilometers away, the landscape of the island is exotic for its inhabitants. Fleeing far from the city to find himself closer to nature, this is Patrick’s life choice. He tells : “I couldn’t go on living the way I did.”

First serving as a fort for the Romans, Nazi Germany used it as a camp which was used to deport prisoners. Here, human beings are not the only ones to be attracted by the wild beauty of the island. Today, it is also used for the birds that have found refuge in this wild universe. Unfortunately for them, many fishermen pollute the island with their nets.
