I have lived on the Isle Of Man for over 40 years now and I love it! The beautiful landscape blows me away, everyday when I go out I cant help but appreciate how lucky I am to be living on this island. I moved here because it was a good place to bring my kids up, I am quite happy to let them go off to Douglas to the shopping centres on their own because I am sure nothing bad will happen, this has to be one of the most peaceful places ever and I have even started to forget to lock my own doors due to me being so sure that nothing bad could happen, although this is a habit I need to get out of just in case.
The Isle Of Man is also well known due to Mark Cavendish, he has been the most successful Manx athlete and has won 20 Tour De France stages. You can find a whole load of information on Mark Cavendish here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Cavendish.
The Island is perfect for fell running (Running in the countryside) and I personally love it, the feeling when your in the countryside and you body is pumped is amazing and I always see many runners, the hills make it even more of a challenge and the montly fell running competetion is always good fun and tests you to the max.
I have a lot of information on a whole range of Island topics so if you are interested please click the link on the sidebars.
I am not trying promote the Isle Of Man for business reasons but this is more as an informative article and it's my way of letting you all know of how great this place is.
