Travel theme: Glow

Sitting here watching flames flickering in a glowing fire, I started looking for photos I’ve taken on my travels that seem to glow. One of my favourite places to spend Christmas is London, because their Christmas decorations are second to none. These glowing blue arches were spectacular to behold.

An eye-catching exhibit at Tacoma Museum of Glass emitted a mysterious glow that danced overhead.

The illuminated waters of the fountain at Lincoln Center seem to glow in the dark of night.

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.

    For a moment I thought you were going to go with the glow of a couple in love or what women call “sweating,” but I’m glad you were literal as usual. ;o)
