A very nice article I just found about St. Catherine's point on the islnad of Wight.

I once had seen a documentary showing spots on this island and really I want to visit it in the future. The documentary I have seen showed the island in winter when it was really cold and the coasts were weavy!
I wonder if Easyjet flies there, or any other budget airline!

Read the article here:

You can't fly to the Isle of Wight - you have to fly to the mainland, the nearest airports are either Southampton or Bournemouth ..... then you can get a ferry over to the island.

Thanks Paula...it's a precious piece of information.
I really had no idea. Have you ever been there? From the documentary I had seen I was impressed then -although I don't remember much, but this particular island comes to my mind very often.

Hi Sian....
You have been away from the forums for a long time.
I am sure you have been working hard lately and this is the reason!
Missed you! hug.gif

Awwwwww! I missed you guys too - I did get to meet up with Kathryn a couple of months ago though, that was nice.

You're right - working too much and stupid hours aswell - got up at 5am this morning! And also don't have the internet at home so I am struggling to get on... hope you're all well here!

So I guessed! wacko.gif
Well, we are all fine here, ....but most of the time the same familiar people!
I also had the chance to meet Manzara my friend from Turkey, 2 months ago, but this year I decided to spend time in Greece. (After the trip I had in Kenya)

Ooh Kenya sounds good - I will have a look.

Mostly working this summer unfortunately, I'll look to go somewhere in October... probably see where the cheapest flights are and work something around that to be honest!
