Blogging A-Z - April Challenge - I is for .....

I is for .......Islands

I can't help wondering if there is a genealogical reason that I like, or feel an affinity to islands. I was born and brought up in the United Kingdom, an Island. My Italian roots and heritage are linked to Sicily, an Island. I love Australia, I spent a year living there and have family there, and obviously, is an Island. I posted under H a super photograph of Tioman, yet another Island!

Over the last few years we have spent time on, and holidayed at a few of the Scottish Islands - Arran and Bute. Both very beautiful and yet different from each other.

And, we have not finished there! - There is an Island off the coast of Devon called Lundy which I have always wanted to visit. A former colleague stayed on the island a few years ago and made me very envious. What is though the attractions with Islands?


  1. It must feel like home to you.

  2. There's one island I'm really interested in - Heligoland (a small island off the coast of Denmark/Holland).

    According to family 'lore', our 'Meyers' family line originates from there, but so far I have yet to prove that - given there are very few BDM records for the island, which has changed hands/sovreignty many times, before being virtually bombed out of existance in WW2!

    Interesting choice for 'I', though!
