Travel theme: Delicate

I’m feeling a little delicate at the moment, so I thought I’d take inspiration and use it for this week’s travel theme. Here are a few delicate sights I’ve photographed on my travels. First, the delicate iron work of a Dublin lamp post – look at all those shamrocks!

Hiking along the Boulder River in the Cascade Mountains earlier this year, I spotted layers of fungus growing out of a tree by a waterfall. It was hot and humid and everything was covered with tiny beads of moisture (including me!)

Delicate tiles surround a drinking fountain in Santa Fe.

And I’ll leave you with some Skagit Valley tulips on a rainy day.

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.
