Travel Tips: Isle of Man

Kris's Isle of Man

What's the one thing about The Isle of Man anyone hoping to visit should be prepared for?
I'd say be prepared for a 3-hour ferry ride, or in our case, 5-hour. Barry and I boarded the ferry in Liverpool and, just after we got on, it lost power. We weren't sure if we were going to be able to meet up with the rest of the team that night or end up in a hotel in Liverpool.

What one item should anyone visiting The Isle of Man bring along?
Plenty of books and a charged iPod in case you get stuck on a ferry with no electricity.

What's the one thing anyone visiting The Isle of Man should see?

Rushen Castle. It's the only thing I had time to see! Barry and I had flown back to LA for an event, so we didn't really get to experience the Isle of Man like the rest of the team did. However, the castle was beautiful, and I really liked how the little town surrounded it. The view from the tower was worth checking out, just be ready for an extremely narrow spiral staircase that leaves you dizzy and realizing you need to spend more time at the gym.

What part of The Isle of Man culture most appealed to you?

I honestly didn't get to spend enough time there to make a fair judgment on the local culture. It seemed like a beautiful sleepy little island, the people were friendly and there were beautiful views. Definitely a place I could see people vacationing.
Would you go back, and why?
I would definitely return to the Isle of Man. The history interested me, it was beautiful and the people made us feel welcome. I know the rest of the team enjoyed the restaurants, pubs and live music while Barry and I were away. I would love to go back and actually experience the island outside of work.
