Each weekend I would go exploring and found that the breathtaking scenery and the social history of the island captured my imagination. I started to research my family tree and have traced back to 1600's, something I love doing and helping people with.
In 2011 I embarked on a journey, studying to become a blue badge guide, and finally in 2013 achieved my goal.
The Isle of Man is an incredible place to visit and has so much to offer its visitors, from its Viking and Celtic origins through the turbulent middle ages to the Victorian heritage that made it what it is today.
Light pollution is minimal here and it has been awarded 'dark skies' status. Like Mannanin the Celtic sea god of the Isle of Man, let me take you on a journey and show you my beautiful island and share its secrets with you!
