Travel theme: : Noise

I’ve been relishing the relative quiet of the countryside recently but even the quietest of corners on the planet have some identifiable noises, from the sounds of chirping crickets or birdsong to planes far overhead. Here are a few noises-filled photos.

The fizz whizz bang of fireworks always brings out my inner child. This was taken at Seattle’s Space Needle one New Year’s Eve.

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.
