Travel theme: Strong

Inspired by my travels through Strongbow’s old stomping grounds in Ireland, I looked around for a few photos that might represent the theme strong. First up, an awe-inspiring man sauntered past me in Guatemala as if he were just out for a daily constitutional. Now that’s what I call endurance.

A ‘strong’ I can’t live without – seriously strong, dark, fully leaded coffee. Mmmm.

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.
