I finished March with a big commission – that’s why it’s taking me so long to catch up with site updates.
Myself and another Daily Telegraph writer spent a long weekend on the Isle of Man with a few to producing a series of articles for both print and online to showcase aspects of the island’s tourism offer for this year.
My brief was to cover three key areas: heritage, family travel and food.
It was a packed few days of steam trains and country roads, seafood and local ales, sea views and country escapes.
I felt by the end of the trip I had finally got to understand more of the island and its low-key charms after a previous visit left me unconvinced.
Best of all, I had the opportunity to meet local of interesting local characters, including Will and Charlotte from the Apple Orphanage [pictured above] outside Peel.
The passion and dedication of these local food heroes, and many more like them, proved to me that there’s a quiet foodie revolution taking place on the island.
I suspect I’ll be back to taste more.
