A Holiday Wish

I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I treasure the community of writers and readers that surrounds me in this corner of the online world. I love the stories you share, the photos you post, the comments you leave and the camaraderie that has developed by sharing journeys through this thing we call life on this planet we call home. I love the tales you tell from places I have yet to visit. I also love the tales you tell from places I thought I was familiar with until you showed them to me through your eyes, forever expanding my mind and broadening my world view. And I think the world would be more tolerant and less prone to hate if they could experience the human condition as we do, not only through our own immediate observations but also through the images and words of others around the planet.

So wherever you are, whatever you celebrate, I wish you joy, love, peace and a little frisson of romance.

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.
