Leisure if Moving home to Jersey
Jersey is a holiday island, there are plenty of things to see and do. One of the most famous land marks is the German Underground Hospital.
Jersey was occupied by the Germans for 5 years during the war, whilst there the orders from Berlin were to make the island into an impregnable fortress, work began to build underground where the army could be protected from attack from sea or air.
The labor to build the tunnels, came from people from all countries in Europe, forced to work in terrible conditions, starved and ill-treated.
You can feel the heavy atmosphere as soon as you enter. There are carefully reconstructed areas within the Hospital tunnel such as the operating theatre, doctors and nurses quarters and offices, all looking as though the occupants have just left the room, a chilling snapshot and an extremely moving experience.
On a lighter note, a visit to the Durrell Wildlife Park is a great day out. The aim of the park is to assist the survival of rare and endangered animals across the world. Founded by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell who has dedicated his life to saving endangered animals.
The park has a huge variety of wildlife and exhibits on show. You can become a keeper for the day, help to feed the Monkeys and the Meerkats. You have to pre- book an “Animal Encounter” where you can go behind the scenes and assist the keepers with the Andean Bears; Aye aye; Fruit bats; Sulawesi Crested Macaques; Birds; Reptiles and amphibians. An amazing experience.
