Ailsa’s travel theme this week is New. Click here to see more entries.
My blog is all about new things – my aim after all is to keep trying new activities and travel to new places. I keep a journal of all the new places that I travel to, with sketches that represent my memories of those places and mementoes from my travels. So, for this theme I thought I’d go back through my journal and share with you a photo from each new place.
I’m already thinking of new places I can visit this year. I’ll keep you posted…
Another great travel theme from Ailsa this week – Transportation. I’ve used various forms of transport during my travels, some I would definitely use again and others that are best categorised as ‘at least I’ve experienced them’. Here are a few that I captured on camera.
Starting with my all-time favourite form of transport – my skis 🙂
Before you ask (because everyone does), I wasn’t sold an odd pair of skis. They are meant to be different colours, they’re a ‘flip-flop’ design.
I usually end up on a bike at some point when I travel.
My first trip in a helicopter, over the Grand Canyon.
Skis weren’t my only form of transport when I worked in winter resorts. These beautiful horses carried us around Seefeld, Austria in their sleigh/buggy (depending on the amount of snow).
And some of my guests chose to travel down the mountain on the Olympic bobsleigh run.
Whichever mode of transport you choose to use, the important thing is that you keep travelling x
Another thought-provoking theme from Ailsa. This week it’s Circles.
The wheel is definitely one circle that is prominent in all my travels. How far would we have got if out ancestors hadn’t thought to invent the wheel?
The wheels of our trusty bus got us around California, Arizona and Nevada on the Western Sun 2012 trip. This shot may make it look like we just tipped all our gear out of the trailer, but it was actually very organised – honest!
Not forgetting the steering wheel. Here is Malcolm the monkey driving the bus after being ‘kidnapped’ by one of my fellow travellers.
Two wheels got me over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco…
