At this time of the year, with the anniversary of VE Day just behind us, our thoughts turn to the dramatic acts of heroism that were shown by many during World War Two and the role the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company played.
The Isle of Man is unique in many ways, but one of our favourite distinctive features is the fascinating Manx folklore, legends and traditions that are intertwined into everyday life here.
It is remarkable that an Island as small as the Isle of Man, measuring just 33 miles long by 13 miles wide, can boast such a rich heritage – but it’s something we’re immensely proud of.
Life on the island moves at slower pace than in many other parts of the world. This pace is succinctly summed up with the Manx expression ‘’traa dy liooar’’ which translated to English means ‘’time enough’’.
