Continental drifting

I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, got caught in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my icecream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. Yet in all this time, I have never written a single word about my travels. I have never kept a diary; I have hardly any photos because I lost most of them when an evil computer died, and it seems such a shame. So it stops here. From now on out, I shall try to keep an account of my adventures here. These are my first words, and these are my first photographs:

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Oops. Meant to leave the above comments on the occupying Wall Street photos.

      🙂 I was wondering about that. Glad you read this post too though! Yes, interesting times here in Gotham, flashback to the sixties.

    Love the variety of colours! I’ve just been to Fiji and half my album snaps are all just blue-blue-blue. Need to get further afield…

  4. I just read your one-year post, congrats! I was curious to see the very first one, I’m amazed at how many posts you managed to write. I look forward to reading more!

      I can’t believe it’s been a year already – although it does feel like I’ve been writing forever! So glad to meet you, looking forward to sharing many more travel tales in the future! 🙂

    Hi Ailsa, I felt exactly the same way when I started my blog a few months ago. I’ve drifted and wandered around so much yet have never been able to keep a travel blog and share my stories. I’m just starting out and feel very much like you, a year ago. Congrats for coming this far. Loved reading your stories!

      Hurrah, congrats on starting your travelogue. I just celebrated my one year anniversary and it’s hard to believe it’s only been one year. Very happy to make your e-acquaintance, Piccola. I just followed your blog to see how you get on. There’s a wonderful travel community here on WP – join in the weekly travel theme here on WMB and get to know them! xxx Ailsa
