May 10, 2008
Situated near the French Normandy, Jersey is the British Island that has people wondering how such a small place can pack this much of a punch. It does not really belong to UK nor is it part of the European Union; it is just a Crown possession. It is the largest amidst all the British Channel islands, and the climate here is pleasant through the year, winters and summers are mild, not tilting towards either extreme. Based on a survey taken, it was discovered that nearly 45% of the population was from other parts of the world.
