2021 and the months are racing past, leaving us behind in their dusty trail. Do you remember last summer? It may feel like a distant memory from a curious time long gone but it definitely happened! John from Island Escapes looks back fondly at a hot day in sunny Port Erin, when he attempted to harness the mighty wind.
A Spring getaway
Our Isle of Man Lockdown version 2.0 is, thankfully, no more. With the UK situation still so very unpredictable, nobody could blame you for feeling ready for a holiday.

An on-Island Escape
Like so many others, our travel plans were thwarted when Covid19 hit the world. My husband and I had been about to embark on our honeymoon in March, when lockdown struck. Finding the silver-lining to the cancelled-honeymoon-cloud, a friend of ours had the great idea of suggesting that we have a staycation, when lockdown eased sufficiently enough for us to do so.
Our Survey Says…
'Only' 32% of Isle of Man residents would consider an Island Staycation, and we think that's brilliant! Here's a glass half-full spin on things from our perspective.

“Wow! It’s a walker’s paradise” or “I never knew that the Isle of Man has so many beautiful and varied landscapes to offer walkers”. These are phrases our visitors often tell us when we are out guiding and showing off our island on foot. But it’s not a surprise to us with a near unlimited choice of routes and landscape to choose from and stunning views around every corner.
