You may have read some of my previous posts about the Isle of Man! I visit quite frequently as I have family over there and this May was my first time back after Covid. It was also Nick’s first EVER visit! The great thing about the island is that no matter how many times or how frequently you go, there’s always something on and a new walk/place to explore.
The IOM is located between Great Britain an Ireland, and you can get there via flight or ferry. It’s not part of the United Kingdom and has a really interesting back story/relationship with the UK. They have their own currency, but do use the British Pound as well, and they also have their own language (Manx) which around 2% of the population still speak.
The Isle of Man is known for many things, including the fact that their cats have no tails. That’s right. Manx cats don’t have tails! In more modern times it’s probably most well known for the TT, a beloved ice creamery (shout out to Davison’s) wild wallabies and being the birthplace of the Bee Gees.
It’s such a lovely place and I couldn’t recommend it more highly if you’ve never been. Fellow florists/flower-lovers will enjoy the amazing woodland walks and wildflowers…
