Travel theme: Flutter

Valentine’s Day is coming up, which might be enough to set your heart a-flutter, but I’ve been looking at other ways of fluttering for this week’s travel theme. First up, a pretty little bird launching into flight in a New York park, its wings a fluttering blur.

Sticking with the wildlife theme, a most majestic flutterer, a giant yellow butterfly in Tikal National Park in Guatemala.

…and fluttering flags from three different countries marking the spot where their borders intersect.

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it’s forever. – Carl Sagan

There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

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.
