Travel theme: Tempting

As the witty wordsmith Oscar Wilde once said, I can resist everything but temptation. I have been failing miserably to resist the temptations Rome has to offer, indulging in decadent pizza…

pizza, rome, italy, travel, travelogue, ailsa prideaux-mooney

… and luscious gelato.

There are many other things I find irresistible, like the call of the ocean on a hot summer’s day…

…building a snowman in the first snowfall of the year…

…the lure of the open road…

…and the promise of what lies hidden around the next corner.

Yield to temptation. It may not pass your way again. – Robert A. Heinlein

I never resist temptation, because I have found that things that are bad for me do not tempt me. – Mark Twain

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.
