Travel theme: Rain

I spent the day dodging rain showers and decided to pay homage to the soggy weather with this week’s travel theme, starting off with a shot of a rainy day in the Cascades.

Raindrops ripple in pools of rainwater gathered in the manhole covers of Times Square.

Let it rain!

❤ Ailsa

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book. – Bill Watterson

The rain continued. It was a hard rain, a perpetual rain, a sweating and steaming rain; it was a mizzle, a downpour, a fountain, a whipping at the eyes, an undertow at the ankles; it was a rain to drown all rains and the memory of rains. – Ray Bradbury

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 the rain, Vossie, well mostly, unless it’s accompanied by gale force winds that drive it sideways and take the skin off your face (happens a lot down this way!)

        Yep… I come from a dry country where water is precious so I love it too! A little less on the early morning winter’s commute! 😉
