Postcards from the Isle of Wight

Last month I spent 12 glorious (literally, it was hot and sunny) days on the Isle of Wight. It was my first visit and one that I was really looking forward to as it has been on my places to visit wishlist for quite some time. The Isle of Wight did not disappoint, I really loved it and want to go back to see the rest of what the island has to offer.

I'm going to talk about our accommodation in a separate post as it was that super so here I thought I would share some of my snapshots of the island.

There is a marvellous mix of seaside, beautiful countryside, historical locations, walks, relaxing spots and ice cream. Really, the best ice cream  ever!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some other views.

  2. I haven't been to the Isle of Wight since I was about 13 but all your photos on here and Instagram really make me want to go back. It's one of those places I never really think of as a holiday destination but you have changed my mind! xx

  6. I love the Isle of Wight and grew up just across the Solent from there in Portsmouth. I don't live that far even now, so it's always within easy reach. I'm glad it didn't disappoint x
