Travel theme: Sports

My eye was taken by a group of surfers learning how to surf in Tramore

…so I went looking for other sporty photos from my travels, like these folks canoeing on the Bandon River…

…this gal and her horse out for a trot in Sleepy Hollow (I don’t mind admitting she gave me a bit of a scare; I was quite relieved to see she wasn’t a headless horseman!)…

…and this chap throwing a few Bruce Lee moves for Chinese New Year.

❤ Ailsa

Sports do not build character. They reveal it. – Heywood Broun

Sport is where an entire life can be compressed into a few hours, where the emotions of a lifetime can be felt on an acre or two of ground, where a person can suffer and die and rise again on six miles of trails through a New York City park. – George A. Sheehan

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.

    Knowing that that photo was taken in Sleepy Hollow makes it creepy anyway, ha ha!
