Plus a post from Kasha Dubaniewicz, who writes the travel blog Lines of Escape.  Kasha visited the Island in February and this is her latest post on the Island of Wight which is now live; it’s a travel guide to a weekend on the Isle of Wight. Please click here to view this blog. Kasha said “My enthusiasm for the island is completely sincere, and I’m hoping to return soon so that I can continue my explorations”.

No sooner said than done – part of her blog focus is active  travel and we have persuaded Kasha to return to the Island to take up our Pure Wight Challenge, a package we have put together in order for travel writers to experience four activities on a short break to the Island, including kayaking around Freshwater Bay and Mountain Boarding on Tennyson Down,Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga at Bembridge Harbour and an “Arrive and Drive” race session at Wight Karting’s circuit in Ryde.
