Travel theme: Creative

Hot on the heels of February’s Snowdrop Festival, spring has burst out all over the place in a riot of colour.

Inspired by nature’s flurry of creativity, I thought it’d be interesting to celebrate other kinds of creativity, starting with this very creative entry into the annual Power Tool Drag Races in Seattle’s Georgetown.

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. – Joseph Chilton Pearce

It is good taste, and good taste alone, that possesses the power to sterilize, and is always the first handicap to any creative functioning. – Salvador Dali

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.

  25. Wow, gorgeous photos! I also have a traveling bug of my own. In a few months we are going to Sweden to celebrate Midsummer’s Eve. It’s good for people to go out and see the world. It’s good that you are seeing so much. If only more people felt inclined to venture into the unknowns.
