Travel theme: Warm

It’s been so cold and grey and miserable here that I’m craving all things warm, including warm colours, like these orange flowers in Antigua

… and the orange robes of this street performer in Rome.

There’s the toasty warmth of a cozy campfire…

…and warm woolly clothes being knit at the Sheep Olympics in Gorey…

… and even more wool, hand dyed Viking-style…

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.
