Well, seeing as last week’s theme was Words, I thought I’d balance things out with a more numerical theme this week, starting off with one of my favourite iconic road trips, the one and only Route 66.
Dublin’s renowned swimming spot, the Forty Foot, immortalised in James Joyce’s Ulysses, and the place where I welcomed in the New Year by taking a plunge in ice-cold water.
The most romantic of meeting spots, under the clock at Grand Central Terminal.
Farina Haus in Cologne, Germany, which has been producing the original Eau de Cologne since 1709.
I’m hoping I can “count” on you to share some of your own numerals for this week’s travel 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: Numerals
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Watch out for the next travel theme which will come out next weekend
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
A book is an arrangement of twenty-six phonetic symbols, ten numerals, and about eight punctuation marks, and people can cast their eyes over these and envision the eruption of Mount Vesuvius or the Battle of Waterloo. – Kurt Vonnegut
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary numerals, and those who don’t. – Ian Stewart
Ooh, I like these, Ailsa….I’ll hunt out some numbers for you tomorrow
Did you really take the New Year’s plunge at the Forty Foot? Just adding to the statistical numbers or can I really count on the true, daft Ailsa to take the dip? You have me outnumbered by enthusiasm for cold! Count me out! 🏊♀️🌊⏰💥😂
Mind you… I’m a tad slow on the uptake!
Your challenge has given me the perfect excuse to promote my short story collection! The Lucky Thirteen… 13 diverse (and sometimes a tad off the wall) tales to enjoy by all!
And… here’s the catch… all for less that the cup of coffee you’d be buying at the take-out coffee shop! Yes, $2.99 can get you real enjoyment… long after the taste of coffee has gone!
Whoop. Congratulations Vossie! I’m going to post links here to your book in Sterling https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B074DZSD4W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501527936 and in Dollars https://www.amazon.com/Lucky-Thirteen-AJ-Vosse-ebook/dp/B074DZSD4W/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1502738323
Thanking you profusely! I’ll have to slip you a copy for review, please?? Thanks!! 😀
True, daft Ailsa reporting for duty, Vossie, I did indeed take the plunge on New Year’s Day. I’m still defrosting! 🙂
You say it so well! Imagine the sight of you shivering and shaking… and no booze anywhere in sight… or, was there the odd dram? 😉

Well, I’ve had a trawl through the archive, and here is a selection of numbers from abandoned/restored structures: https://suejudd.com/2017/08/14/numerals-in-decay/
These are beautiful, Sue, very evocative! xxx
Thanks, Ailsa! Glad you like them! 😊
