Travel theme: Sugar

I rounded the corner in a local grocery store yesterday and was a little shocked to see shelves and shelves of Christmas chocolate. I mean, we’re not even halfway through September yet. Their truffle sprouts gave me a giggle though…

…so I forgave them and went looking for other sugar-coated photos from my travels, like this Boston Cream Pie in the place it was first imagined, Parker House in Boston.

More natural sources of sugar, dazzling berries at a California farmer’s market…

Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one’s bath like a lump of sugar. – Pablo Picasso

I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted. – Og Mandino

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.

      Vossie I find it hard to believe you have a bitter bone in your body, I suspect you are pure sugar. 🙂

        I wish!! The T2D got the better of me but hey… leaving the sugar behind and look-see, no more T2D!
        PS – So, I’ve become a bit of an anti sugar preacher! Sorry to spoil the party!! 😉 😀 😉
