Travel theme: Fresh

I can still smell the air on that trail at Washington Pass, a perfect mix of cold and freshness, so I’ve been looking through my photos for some shots that fit with the fresh theme. Snow for me epitomizes freshness so I’m starting off with a snowy photo from Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park.

Everything feels fresher after a rain shower, with the added bonus of sparkling raindrops scattering light all around. This was taken at Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island shortly after a cloudburst.

An inventive way of keeping roses fresh; a rose man in Rome douses his bouquet in a fountain.

Fresh berries at a farmer’s market in California, mmmm.

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. – J.B. Priestly

I am so fresh in soul and spirit that life gushes and bubbles around me in a thousand springs. – Robert Schumann

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.

    Thanks for the excuse to post the strawberry and rhubarb cordial recipe again, Ailsa. It’s so delicious I thought it deserved another outing, and here in the UK we’re about to have a strawberry glut:
