Travel theme: Bridges

Seeing as I’ve just written about crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on my road trip, I thought I’d have a look at some other bridges I’ve encountered on my travels. From my hometown, here is Dublin‘s Beckett Bridge.

Just north of New York City on the Hudson Line is the legendary Sleepy Hollow, home to spooky graveyards and the Headless Horseman Bridge.

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 - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    You’ve got to believe me!! I’ve been meaning to do a Dublin Liffey Bridges post for a few weeks now… I’ve eventually managed to cross every one from Heuston Station to the East Link Lifting Bridge… let me see if I can get a gallery done in time… otherwise, your top picture may well be a good one for me to do a copy cat of!! I took a few similar ones not too long ago…

    • ailsapm says:

      Wow, aj, you must have been zigzagging the Liffey forever, there are so many bridges across it now. Looking forward to that gallery for sure! xxx

    That first photo, not an easy shot to get at night–well done.
    Here are my architecturally sound water crossings:

    • ailsapm says:

      Thanks Logan – for the compliment about the top shot and also for not posting a photo of Jeff Bridges, hah hah. Wonderful series of photos, that Moon Bridge is so beautiful, but my favourite photo is the last one, with just the merest suggestion of bridge. It’s really lovely. xxx

      • loganbruin says:

        Did not know you were from Dublin. I just posted about my last trip there. .. on a March 17th, accidentally. ;o)

        • ailsapm says:

          Now isn’t that a coincidence, being in Dublin on St Patrick’s Day – hope you didn’t get into too much trouble. On second thoughts, too late, never mind, I just read your post, hee hee.

    • ailsapm says:

      You can never have too many photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, kz, and you got some wonderful shots. My favourite is the fifth one, that shows it curving off across the bay. 🙂

    Wow! The first one is spectacular. Great theme:-)

    • ailsapm says:

      It’s a pretty sexy bridge as bridges go, one of my favourite recent additions to the Dublin landscape. I’m kind of biased though, because it commemorates Beckett who is one of my favourite playwrights too. 🙂

  18. restlessjo says:

    That is THE best shot I’ve seen of that Dublin bridge. Lurvv bridges! Must get my act together.

      It’s funny when you start to look back over all the places you’ve visited and find common themes you never thought about. Love that shot of Rio-Antirrio Bridge. 🙂
