Travel theme: Laughter

This has been a tragic week. For the reasons my last post has mentioned, I choose to embrace laughter for this week’s travel theme. I hope you will join me. Here’s my favourite laughing donkey carved with a chainsaw near California’s Lost Coast.

The only sensible thing to do when you are handed an octopus is to laugh. You never know what’s going to happen next in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

Colourful glee celebrating the Holi Festival.

A wonderful thing about true laughter is that it just destroys any kind of system of dividing people. – John Cleese


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.

    After looking at other posts with the laughter theme I have decided I need to be braver when photographing people yet try to maintain respectfulness… or get a great zoom!. Regards Peet
