Travel theme: Inviting

Up here in the northern hemisphere the nights are closing in and there’s a slight chill to the air. I usually spend a large part of my travel days on the go, exploring new places, but on days like these, cosy coffee shops like Rome‘s Caffè Greco start to look inviting.

Also around this time of year, the smell of roasted chestnuts starts to waft through city streets, inviting you to follow your nose and purchase a bag of sweet floury treats.

The melodic sound of harp strings being played on a bustling Dublin street invites passers by to take a few moments out of their busy lives and relax.

On a sweltering hot summer’s day along California’s Lost Coast, the ocean almost calls your name, inviting you to jump headfirst into the cool, clear surf.

Autumn in New York; why does it seem so inviting? – Vernon Duke

When you’re writing, you’re conjuring. It’s a ritual and you need to be brave and respectful and sometimes get out of the way of whatever it is that you’re inviting into the room. – Tom Waits

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.
