Travel theme: Decoration

After my trip through Leavenworth‘s year round Christmas shop my thoughts are filled with all things decorative so I went looking through my photos to see what other embellished delights I could lay my hands on.

Bright red eggs make a pretty centrepiece for a traditional Greek Easter celebration. They also provide the ingredients for a great after-dinner game.

Beautifully ornate Turkish pottery that I would have bought if it weren’t for the fact I had only an overstuffed backpack and it would have smashed for sure. Those colours just make me happy.

Manhattan’s Upper West Side doesn’t pull any decorative punches on Hallowe’en; this dreadful creature was so lifelike it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in terror.

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.

    Hi Ailsa and backpackfriends, here’s my contribution.

    In my opinion, when it comes to decoration, nature ‘s just unbeatable, don’t you agree?
    And so is this bumblebee …

  34. I love your first two choices for this theme, Ailsa (I’ll be honest though, that last one really creeps me out too!). Here’s my take for the week:
