Travel theme: Wild

I’ve been having a wild time recently, taking road trips with friends around the Pacific Northwest, exploring some of the stunning scenery to be found here. Without giving away too much before I write about my adventures, here are a few teaser photos. I’ve encountered some wild weather…

storm, thunder, flood, road trip, travel, ailsa prideaux-mooney

and some wonderful wildlife…

and walked through fields of wildflowers…

and even encountered wildlife walking through fields of wildflowers.

So let your imagination run wild and come up with your own interpretation of this week’s travel theme. Everyone’s welcome to join in. Here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Wild
  • 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.

Take a walk on the wild side.

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.

    BTW, I’ve reached your neck of the woods, and will probably stick around for another 7-10 days. Cheers!

    Hi, Ailsa! We look forward to your upcoming posts about the Pacific Northwest—these pictures have whetted our appetites. Love the wildflowers and especially the “wild weather!” Things got pretty wild at our place the other morning, and we weren’t even kayaking… our post is here 🙂 http://2geeks3knots.com/2013/08/03/travel-theme-wild/

    My “wild” backyard, looking rather calm. Hidden in the trees are all sorts of wildlife — none of which volunteered for a photo shoot. http://wp.me/p1tzBV-27y
