Travel theme: Flow

After getting into the flow of things at the Georgetown Carnival last weekend, here are a few more photos that spring to mind when I think of the word ‘flow’. First, the flow of the mighty Mississippi – this was my very first view of that majestic river, with my nose pressed up against a train window.

The gentle, blush flow of the Coral Pink Sand Dunes in Utah, shortly before a massive thunderstorm unleashed its fury during monsoon season.

The flow of marching bands along Fifth Avenue during the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The thundering flow of water over Niagara’s Horseshoe Falls.

The steady flow of pedestrians over Dublin‘s Ha’penny 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.

    That’s a lot of angles on the theme I wouldn’t have expected or thought of. Nice ideas.

    Still, I stuck with the basic, sunset on a river cruise around Ayutthaya.

    • ailsapm says:

      It’s funny, Ben, sometimes the places closest to us are the ones we visit last. Lovely shot, and I’m very glad that car accident didn’t prevent you from checking out this lovely part of the world.

    I know that my post doesn’t really apply to this week’s travel theme but I believe it’s worth sharing. So, here’s my entry: 🙂

    • ailsapm says:

      It fits perfectly with the theme, and boy, that looks a little scary, especially with kids in the car with you. Those flash floods can be treacherous. xxx

      • masadiso79 says:

        I’m so happy I’m with the theme. Driving through this flood, was one of the scariest experiences in my life, just because of the kids. 😉

  9. This was an interesting theme. I LOVE your waterfall photo! Here are my picks:

    • ailsapm says:

      Oh wow, these are gorgeous, and all so different, I kept deciding the one I was looking at was my favourite, until I scrolled down and saw the next one. I can’t decide, they’re all fab! 🙂

  10. Mrs Carmichael has gone with the appropriately obvious take on the theme today.

    I enjoyed your photos. The one from Utah is spectacular.

    • ailsapm says:

      Thanks Laurie, it’s hard to take a bad photo in Utah, the place is crammed full of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen! 🙂

    In love with your Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Ailsa!
    And here I am – going with the flow:

    • ailsapm says:

      Great shots, Ese – your header photo also fits the theme perfectly, the flow of sands across the desert. Where was that shot taken? It looks so wonderfully mysterious. 🙂
