Travel Theme: Through

I’m working my way through all the photographs I took on my road trip earlier this year to visit some of the Pacific Northwest’s volcanoes, and there’s one I keep coming back to, a glimpse of light breaking through the darkness of a lava tube on the south side of Mount St Helens.

So I went looking for some other photos that fit with this week’s theme, like the Camden horse tunnels in London…

…and the huge arched windows carved in the side of a tunnel running through Zion National Park that gave a brief glimpse of the stunning view awaiting you at the end of the tunnel.

Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? As I was trying to dodge the driving rain and get back to the car at Mount Rainier, I looked up to see this little beauty on a hill overlooking the parking lot. She was peeping through the trees, watching every soggy move I made with great interest.

Now that I’m through, it’s over to you for your interpretation of this week’s theme. If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

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

Looking forward to reading through your posts (I’m playing catch up on the last few weeks; being on the road I’ve fallen a little behind in reading everyone’s entries – I’m still in travel mode but will be back in one place by early October and will get caught up, I promise!).

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.
