Every adventure starts at home!
While travelling one of the first questions is ‘Where do you come from?’ The Isle of Man triggers a variety of responses…
‘Is that near England?”
“Oh, that’s off the southern coast of England”… Nope that’s the Isle of Wight
“TT races!!” We get that one a lot. We have 2 weeks a year when the island practically bursts with people when they arrive for the famous TT Races. Living here we watch our everyday roads turn into a race course in a matter of minutes! But the buzz over that period is just amazing!
So apart from the TT, what is there to do in the Isle of Man?? Well, it’s mainly an outdoors kind of place and we do tend to have some wild weather but as long as you wear the appropriate clothing you can do just about anything. We have a vast array of beautiful glens and walks around the island. There are oodles of cycling opportunities (we have a couple of famous cyclist from here). There are many historic sites/features to visit and some amazing wildlife (although I’m still to spot a basking shark along our coastline!!)
