Travel theme: Broken

Noooo! My trusty little car that so bravely clambered the heights of Mount Leinster made a noise today that it shouldn’t have made and stopped working. I’m hoping it’s not too broken, but while I await the verdict and steel myself to be broken-hearted and broke financially, I am consoling myself by seeking out other broken bits and pieces I’ve found on my travels. First up, appropriately, a rusted and broken up old car at an outdoor museum in Winthrop, Washington. My car looks shinier but is equally immobile at the moment. 😦

This gorgeous pergola in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square has been broken more times than I can count. In fact, just after I wrote this article about it, a bunch of reckless Seahawks revellers damaged it by partying on its roof! The good news is that a whole group of more responsible Seahawks fans, not wanting to be tarred with the same brush, chipped in to have it repaired.

And finally, a much pleasanter kind of broken – watching dawn break over the wings of an airplane.

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.
