Ireland celebrated National Poetry Day yesterday; and across the pond the US celebrates National Poetry Month every April. Now I love a good poem (one of my current favourites is The Swan) so I th…

Stepping up the glitz and dazzling for this week's #travel   #photography  theme. #travelphotography  
Dazzling is one of those fabulous words that smacks of magic with all those zzs nudging up against that initial d. It’s such a lovely word to speak aloud, and a fun theme to try to find photo…

All around me friends are struggling to find a healthy work-life balance, while the planet is wobbling ever further out of balance at an alarming rate. So, to restore a semblance of balance into so…

Nearly fashionably late this week :)
Yikes, I got busy and was very nearly late getting my weekly travel theme up in time, so the theme this week sort of picked itself. Here are a few shots that conjure up for me the term late, starti…

It's hip to be square - for this week's #travel   #photography  theme. 
#travelphotography  
I used “Circles” as a theme a few years ago, but figured its edgier brother “Square” would make for another interesting subject, so to start off this week’s travel the…

It’s that time of year in the northern hemisphere when winter starts to shed its cloak and the tiniest of flowers rush prematurely into bloom despite the frosty mornings and bitter temperatur…

Celebrating the written word for National Library Week
It will probably come as no surprise to you that I am a proud, (library) card-carrying bookworm; I adore the written word. Admittedly, e-books are convenient when you have limited space in your ca…

Bring on the summer! #travel   #photography  
Is it just me or do you too feel like winter has dragged on for far too long this year ? I’m getting a little stir crazy, cooped up indoors watching it rage and storm outside. This week I man…

Getting creative this week! #travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
Hot on the heels of February’s Snowdrop Festival, spring has burst out all over the place in a riot of colour. Inspired by nature’s flurry of creativity, I thought it’d be interes…

A little bit of Seussical silliness.
#drseuss   #travel   #travelphotography  
A couple of years ago I did a post for Dr. Seuss Day coupling some of my travel photos with a few favourite quotes from “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”. To celebrate the ever-relevant man’s birth…

I went for a walk in the very early morning when a thick layer of frost covered everything and took some shots of gnarled, brown, barely-there leaves given a new lease of beauty by glittering ice c...

Introduction
Photographer, Writer, Adventurer, Globetrotter, Explorer; I love nature, animals and Life with a capital L.

Hi there! I'm Ailsa. 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 icecream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. 

And I'm just getting started.
