Travel theme: Industry

Whew, it’s been a busy week and I have failed miserably to keep up with the goals I set for myself. In the words of the late, great Douglas Adams… I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. To compensate, let’s play with industry for this week’s travel theme. First up, a funky homage to farm equipment just outside of Vega, Texas along Route 66.

Next, sunset in the heart of Californian oil fields.

Giant silos and a town called Concrete might offer clues as to the main industry round these parts.

Hopefully I have stirred you up into a hive of industry. If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Industry
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
  • Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS!

I’m going to pop off for now as I have several more deadlines to miss. Looking forward to seeing what industry means to you.

There exist limitless opportunities within every industry. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier. – Charles F. Kettering

In an industrial society which confuses work and productivity, the necessity of producing has always been the enemy of the desire to create. – Raoul Vaneigem

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.
