Travel theme: Steps

I have. of late, been out of step with my regular posting schedule. I will try to get back to posting my challenges on the weekends, but for now, I am taking a step in the right direction with a few step-related travel shots, starting off with these fabulous steps in the courtyard of a caravanserai in central Turkey.

❤ Ailsa

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man. – Heraclitus

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. – Henry David Thoreau


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.

    It takes 311 steps to reach the viewing platform of the Monument, which commemorates the Great Fire of London. They also lead to where Jaspa’s Journey 2: The Pride of London really begins!

    Woof, that first set of steps gives me massive anxiety. Beautiful picture, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t imagine ascending those steps. Again, gorgeous pictures.
