This Christmas I wanted to go somewhere different and interesting and the Isle of Man seemed to be the ideal destination. We stayed in Douglas and had days out exploring the island. Christmas was a very relaxing day strolling along the sea front at Douglas - in gale force winds which was very exhilarating. This is my story in pictures.

Life During a Coronavirus Pandemic: Week 94 Italy Beckons
Is there light at the end of the dark tunnel we have been finding our way through since the coronavirus pandemic started in China two years ago? The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has spread more rapidly with daily record breaking numbers of new cases but it is also proving to be milder than Delta, its predecessor. Scientists are predicting the world can live with this milder variation - provided there are no more mutations that could be more serious. As travel is becoming easier I get ready to lead a skiing holiday in Folgaria, Italy.
