August 9th is National Book Lovers Day so this week’s (late again) travel theme celebrates the written word, starting off with an homage to Ireland’s literary heritage, painted on one of the panels of a rather surprising door in the very heart of Dublin.

A very Germanic welcome to the little Bavarian town of Leavenworth deep in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.
My favourite name on the tiles at Pike Place Market. Thanks for the laugh, Turkeylips, whoever you are.
Hope for days like these, the Imagine mosaic remembers John Lennon at Strawberry Fields memorial in Central Park.
