Island life…..just.

Whichever country you may live in, or visit, any island is slightly detached, slightly eccentric to the mainland however close to shore it may be.

Whether you need to catch a ferry to get there (e.g. Catalina Island in California, www.catalina.com) or you can approach over a short bridge (e.g. Ile de Re in France, www.holidays-iledere.co.uk, or Hayling Island – www.hayling.co.uk in the UK) you will often find that the pace of life slows down a notch or two and the rythmn of life is slightly more eccentric than back on the mainland.

If you are looking for detachment and solitude then there are more remote Island options that I will no doubt visit in my blog in the future, but for a gentle break, not too far from the madding crowd, try Island life not too far from home.

What the island loses in physical distance will be more than made up for in mental detachment once there.
