Travel theme: Frozen

Brrr! The temperatures have just plummeted round this way and it is now officially windshield-scraping season (or if you’re anything like me, write-on-your-frosty-windshield season).

And so, to keep things frosty, here are a few ice-cold photos from my travels, starting with this snow-decked rose braving the cold in Inwood Hill Park, New York.

Frozen deliciousness in the shape of Umpqua Black Licorice ice cream in Leavenworth.

And more frozen food, this time just a little too over-the-top sugary for my taste, but an experience nevertheless. Frozen cheesecake on a stick at the Folklife Festival in Seattle. (I prefer my cheesecake unfrozen, on a plate, in New York.)

A snow-capped squirrel holding his nuts (haha, yes I just re-read that) in Central Park.

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it. – Lucy Larcom

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.    – Langston Hughes

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.

    Licquorice ice cream, yum! I have tasted excellent examples in France and in Germany some years ago

      I thought it was delicious, Sue, but I could have done without the unfortunate side effect of disturbing green lips, teeth and tongue for the next few hours. 🙂 Still, it wouldn’t stop me from trying it again.

  12. It’s cold here in the Chicago area, too, and I accidentally have a photo today that fits the theme. Pauline suggested I link it, which I hadn’t as I’m behind in reading posts. But here I am, loving the squirrel shot and the Mt. Rainier photo. I do enjoy winter and snow, so here’s my “cold” shot:

    Hi Ailsa. I have a love/hate relationship with winter. Here’s mine from the archives. No wonderful snowfalls here yet to motivate a photographic adventure. Wet snow and then rain.

  22. Somebody forgot fall! Thankfully, it’s coming back in my neighborhood (though it forgot the colorful leaves).
