Guernsey has a spirit of community and friendliness that is hard to find in other destinations
A ‘Guern’ friend is a friend for life and courtesy on the roads is the norm. If you plan to drive in Guernsey, watch how the locals step on their brakes to let you join the road. And if you pass a local during a clifftop stroll, you will likely get a smile and a friendly ‘hello’ or ‘warro’.
‘Eh’ - Used as a question tag ‘Great weather, eh?’
‘Cheerie’ - A friendly goodbye, often said when you leave a shop or restaurant
‘À la perchoine’ - Guernsey French for ‘Until we meet again’
‘Warro’ or ‘banjour’ - Hi or hello
‘to Town, eh’ - let's go to St Peter Port
