Travel theme: Pathways

After winding a path through the blue trees of Seattle earlier this week, I started thinking about other paths I have travelled down; here are a few of my favourites. First, a moss-flanked pathway into thick forest at the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.

“If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.” – Anatole France

Next, a sandy trail through Angel Canyon in the heart of Utah.

“When the path ignites a soul, there’s no remaining in place.” – Hakim Sanai

Finally, a dark and mysterious path through an unexpected bamboo forest in Rye, New York.

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Pathways

Lead me up the garden path!

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.
