Making my Isle of Man pipedream a reality
I’ve visited the Isle of Man for many years for the TT, and even before I met Louise, knew I’d end up here. To finally make that pipedream a reality has made all these years of long distance and ups and downs all the more sweeter.
Coming for TT of course was an incredible experience in itself and became the highlight of my year. Each time I’d visit, my stays would get longer – to the point where I was staying for five to six weeks at a time. Me and my friends would bring a van full of bikes, and as well as watching the races, we’d take out our Enduro bikes and explore the Island off-road. Each year I’d visit, I’d fall more in love with the place. When Louise and I were doing long distance, and the time would come for her to return home after a trip to the UK, I’d drop her off at the ferry port and would be heartbroken each time – saying goodbye to Louise got harder, but I was also so envious that she was going back to the Island!
