Travel theme: Old-fashioned

It’s hotting up around here and I’m cooling down with a good old-fashioned Old Fashioned.

While I’m at it, I’ve been looking through some photos of old-fashioned things I’ve happened across on my travels…. like this vintage Kissel car in Wisconsin.

In Guatemala I spotted this chap transporting fuel the old-fashioned way…

and tried my hand at old-fashioned flirting on joggling boards in Charleston.

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.

    Me? I’m also cooling down with and old fashioned… me! 😉

  3. I prefer a gin and tonic, but I love that truck and am glad I don’t have to carry wood that way!

  5. Thanks for another great challenge, Ailsa! Here is my response:

    For a long time, bartenders looked at me oddly when I ordered an old fashioned. Then they suddenly came back in style along with real (gin) martinis and Manhattans — a result of the TV show “Mad Men.”

      The first time I tasted it was in Virginia, made by my friend’s dad. He made it super strong and it was so hot and humid I was probably a little dehydrated already, so after a couple of sips I was already woozy. Good stuff. 🙂

  7. Sue says:

    A nice set for Old Fashioned, Ailsa! I’ll see what I can find….

  8. klara says:

    uuuu, so challenging… (for me) 🙂 now I have to think…. if I have something corresponding among my photos.

  9. klara says:

    got it, got it!!! 🙂

    I didn’t know there was a drink called ‘old-fashioned’. how funny. lovely colours and focus. wouldn’t mind sipping it.

      How perfect for this week’s theme, Klara. Oh and yes, you must try an Old Fashioned sometime, preferably on a hot summer’s evening. 🙂

  12. Ailsa, what is an Old-Fashioned? It looks enticing, but I have no idea. Love the car and the transport photo! Have a wonderful weekend. x
    Here’s my take on this week’s theme:

  13. Jaspa says:

    The whole historic heart of Valparaiso, Chile, is old fashioned, which is why UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site…

    • ailsapm says:

      How wonderful, what a riot of colour, I love it. I just adore that shot of the hairpin bend street with the skinny little houses. 🙂

  16. So many old-fashioned things to choose from for this theme. I have gone with a charming old-fashioned bridge 🙂

    • ailsapm says:

      Lovely tranquil photos, dormousetidings. I haven’t made it to Bath yet but judging by your photos I would spend an awful lot of time taking photos; it looks gorgeous.

      Lovely shot, Sandra, do know if they’re still used as warehouses, or if they’ve been repurposed into living spaces?
