Travel theme: Sweet

My sister-in-law Roya texted me last weekend because The Bite of Seattle was taking place at Seattle Center – which meant it was time to go in search of frozen cheesecake on a stick. I had heard stories of this chilly concoction ever since Roya first discovered it, but had never had the chance to try it for myself. How could I resist its icy, chocolate-covered, nutty, sprinkled sweetness?

But sweet can be so much more. How about the silvery tinkle of a harp being played on a busy Dublin street?

Or the intoxicating fragrance of honeysuckle on a hot New York summer’s day?

So indulge your sweet tooth and join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) Here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Sweet
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
  • Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS – I’m in the process of changing over to a new website host but will give you all a heads up when the changeover happens. If you’re following via email there won’t be a change but if you’re following via WordPress you will need to sign up for email or RSS.

Whisper a sweet nothing and send it my way.

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.
