That's something that I find truly fascinating. How is the life on island different from the one on mainland? How do islands influence their inhabitants? Does it feel much different to live on an island located close to mainland, than on those more remote ones? How small or remote must the island be to have the 'island feeling'?
I can try answering those questions only from a traveller's point of view, that's why I love reading a bit about the island life on the cards I receive, or just chatting with some islanders. I'd also love to hear some thoughts about this subject from anyone visiting this blog, so don't hesitate to comment!
