Travel theme: Four

The luck of the Irish to you all on this fine (well, blustery and rainy) St. Patrick’s Day. Seeing as the four-leafed clover is synonymous with this holiday I thought I’d go with lucky number four for this week’s theme, starting off with four frankly scary Nutcrackers in Leavenworth.

Four May Day revelers in Seattle.

Four flamingos. Oh wait, nope, that’s two flamingos reflected. 🙂

Four birds chilling in a Staten Island park. EDIT: Or is it five.. as the more eagle-eyed amongst you have suggested?  😉

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.
