Travel theme: Work

I was sauntering through Rome‘s Campo de’ Fiori when my eye was caught by this cheeky vendor.

So I went looking through my photos for other images of work that I’ve caught on my travels. Here is laundry day on the shores of Lake Atitlan.

Still in Guatemala, this chap made log-carrying look easy. I was in awe of the speed at which he was walking with such a heavy burden.

This guard had the difficult task of stopping people from running headlong through the tulip fields at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Behind the scenes, in fields not open to the public, tulilp pickers spread across fields of unopened tulips gathering armloads of plants for future sale.

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.

  31. I had to give that first photo a second and a third look to make sure it was a
    t-shirt this fellow had on and not the real lacy parts themselves. Ha ha.
