Travel theme: Bountiful

Fresh from revelling in the bounty of Ireland’s autumnal hedgerows, I decided to take a look at some other bountiful moments on my travels.

Soft swaying fronds of sugar cane fields in Guatemala promised a bumper crop and bountiful harvest.

Tulips were bountiful in Skagit Valley

…as were the wads of chewing gum stuck on the Gum Wall in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you. – Mahatma Gandhi

Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. – Ovid

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.

    A fun theme you’ve got this week. That photo in the middle is beautiful with its contrast of colors. That gum wall on the other hand is a bit distubing up close.

    Here’s my entry for the week.

  4. See – naps are good!
    (Remember trudging down sugar cane rows in East Texas as a kid and how towering the stalks were…as high as an elephant’s eye – really. So I never saw the plumes. But it was very cool being so little among so tall.)

      Haha, it’s definitely impossible to ignore that chewing gum, Ese. Love your post, that field of poppies looks like a painting, so beautiful. xxx

    I’ve been away for a few weeks and have missed going through my travel photos. I wonder what I’ll find for this one. I can’t quite bring myself to “like” that gum wall but it’s pretty amazing.

    That word was unfamiliar to me – I had to look it up. (Blogging is a good way of improving the vocabulary.) I hope I understood it correctly.

    And that wall of chewing gum is weird, though It seems to be popular.

    PS. Not sure what just happened. I borrowed a friend’s laptop to do my post today (s296). Despite the fact I was clearly logged in as me to create my post, it bizarrely posted my above comment as coming from s296. No idea how that works, but if you could remove said comment (and this little explanation), that would be great! Your pal, Jaspa!
