The Isle of Man is often described as a different kingdom and it is true - wherever you are, whatever the weather visitors will find something to entrance and delight. Myths and legends abound and historical buildings reflect a past painted by Celts, Vikings and Norsemen. Journeys on heritage railways, walks in glens and sightings of the abundant wildlife are just a few of the joys of being on this lovely island. Visit the House of Manannan, Celtic god of the sea, and let him guide you through its fascinating history and traditions.

Life During a Coronavirus Pandemic: Week 81 Albania
It is week 81 of the coronavirus pandemic and, finally, the restrictions on International travel are relaxed for the double vaccinated. Pre-travel negative PCR tests are no longer required when travelling to and from non-red list countries just a second day PCR test on returning to the UK. This means I only have to do one PCR test on my return from Albania. And this second day test is due to be replaced by the cheaper rapid lateral flow test towards the end of October. The number of countries on the red list are dramatically reduced to just seven. It signals the biggest opening up of international travel since the pandemic began. Hopefully, this will boost tourism in the UK as COVID-19 restrictions have severely reduced the number of visitors from abroad.
