Travel theme: Mellow

Tomorrow (August 15th) is National Relaxation Day so I’m getting a head start on things by keeping it mellow for this week’s travel theme. First up, a pair of chilled out anglers taking it easy on a river near Salmon la Sac in Washington.

These snoozing horses in Skagit Valley have definitely got a handle on how to keep things mellow.

New Yorkers take some time out in the height of summer to slow things down with a little yoga on the solstice in Times Square.

Autumn’s the mellow time. – William Allingham

Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart. – Washington Irving

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.
