Isle of Man wanderings

Isle of Man wanderings

Well, I'm just back from NYE in the Isle of Man and I thought I'd share a few of my favourite snaps from the trip. We did a lot of walking which doesn't seem to have a made a vast difference to the giant weight gain I've had from Christmas but hey, small steps! 

The penultimate picture is from our walk up to the Isle of Man's highest peak, Snaefell, which gets you up to 620m and is a really lovely walk with no scrambling just lots of uphill (my favourite type!) There was a beautiful, empty railway track about 100m from the top and it was just beautiful seeing it like that on a sunny, cold day. 

Not a bad start to the new year!

 Only noticeable downside: IoM is bloody freezing.
