England - Durdle Door, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Grand Tour - England - Day 762

The alarm clock rings shortly before 6 a.m. We are ready at half past six. Coffee in a hurry, hiking boots on our feet, camera battery fully charged and hiking backpack casually dangling over our shoulder. 

The trail drags on, the sun slips higher and higher and at some point even warms us. Then, destination reached, we stand on the coast, high above Durdle Door.

Durdle Door, we read, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also the location for various films and music videos. And now here we are, completing the list of hip visitors.

Now we look at it, the Jurassic chalk coast with its hole in the middle of the rock. It already looks very pretty, the hike was absolutely worth it. 

On the way back we take a detour into the small town, in the meantime we are met by several visitors. We go downhill with trembling knees, they are still puffing their way uphill. We are so glad to have the steep uphill part behind us!

In the small town we enjoy a cosy cappuccino on the terrace in summery temperatures and find that we have already done quite a lot for the day by now, at around 10.30 am.

Merci for "travelling with us

We are thinking about taking another break from travelling in the summer and visiting our families in Germany and Switzerland. One of the ideas is to organise a Lecture about our long journey to the Persian Gulf to prepare. If you would like to, what would interest you the most? We will also tell stories here that don't find a place here on the blog. We're thinking of the Bern and Berlin area - simply because we have family there. But other places are also conceivable. Feel free to write to us.

Do you think our travel experiences might be of interest to others? Then you can share the Share post quietly. By e-mail or however you want to do it.

In addition, if you haven't already done so, you can use our Newsletter subscribe. Here you will receive all our experiences in your mailbox whenever we publish something new or once a week on Fridays: live-pur.ch/newsletter

We are also very happy to hear your views, your tips or your questions. Just comment on the post!
