Travel theme: Exits

Yikes, what a week. With shock waves still reverberating around the world from Britain’s exit from the European Union, here’s a look at some rather less controversial exits from my travels around the planet. First up, the light at the end of a tunnel in Zion National Park.

Helping oil exit the ground, vast oilfields in California.

Once an exit, now half-submerged by the rising waters of Lake Atitlan.


Daylight shows the way out of Ape Cave at Mount St. Helens.

So if you don’t find the subject matter too way out (sorry, I couldn’t resist) then come up with your own interpretation of this week’s theme. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Exits
  • 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 (unless, of course, I get locked out again!)

I don’t believe in dying. It’s been done. I’m working on a new exit. Besides, I can’t die now – I’m booked.  – George Burns
We do on stage the things that are supposed to happen off. Which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit being an entrance somewhere else. – Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead)

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.

      I love those old NY fire escapes, I used to sit out on the one outside my top floor bedroom window and watch the world go by in Hell’s Kitchen. xxx

      Whooda thunk it? As they say here, gobsmacked. I feel sorry for those who voted to remain, it’s got to be pretty traumatic.

      Ooh, great post, I am fascinated by anything to do with Egypt so obviously the Giza tunnel and that Luxor sunset stole my heart. xxx

    The textures in the tunnel walls are great, Ailsa.
    The Cementerio de la Recoleta in Buenos Aires commemorates the Exits of over 6400 people from this life:

    Nice theme. Gave me the opportunity to finally post an artikle, which I had planned already. :
    Thanks a lot!
    Best regards

  24. I went to a Hindu temple the other week in which you entered through the mouth of a cow, and exited, yes you got out, out of it’s rear! That wasn’t even the craziest thing about that temple, the wierdest one I have found, in 18 years of traveling India! Would write and post and do what ever it is you have to do but don’t quite get how, is it post on my own blog with a link to yours, is that how it works? Sorry, am newish to this blogging game!

    A very timely topic! I had to look closely to choose photos of exits, rather than the entrances I usually photograph:
