Exploring all things indoors this week.
#photography   #travel   #travelphotography  
It’s wild and stormy and I find myself stuck indoors for the day, so I decided to use the opportunity for this week’s travel theme. But how do you interpret indoors? It could be ‘…

Getting connected this #independenceday   weekend. #travel   #photography   #travelphotography   
With US Independence Day up ahead, I was thinking of a related theme this week, so I was contemplating all the meanings the word ‘independent’ conveys. First, not being under outside control – sov…

Not going anywhere for this week's travel theme
#travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
It’s that time of year when I begin to get restless and start looking at new and exotic destinations to add to my list of places I must visit soon. But until my next trip, I am resolved to em…

Celebrate the Sisterhood of the Travelling Plants :)
#travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
It occurred to me recently that many of my travels have involved, at some point or another, close up encounters with plants, from giant redwoods in California to tiny mosses in the Hoh rainforest. …

Get your tent ready
Now I’ve done my fair share of camping, with, ummm, mixed results, like when my sleeping bag got flooded at Mount St Helens, or the time I woke up with a face full of keyboard along the Orego…

I came across one of my favourite photos recentlly, taken at a Holi festival a couple of years ago… …and so the travel theme for this week was hatched. This raccoon in Central Park knew…

Deep in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, just outside of Manaus, two rivers join to create the mighty Amazon River. One, the Rio Solimões, is a light, sandy colour; the other, the Rio Negro, is pr…

Going, going, gone. Still reeling from the news of #Brexit  here's an homage for this week's #travel   #photography  theme. #travelphotography  
Yikes, what a week. With shock waves still reverberating around the world from Britain’s exit from the European Union, here’s a look at some rather less controversial exits from my trav…

Aagh, just as I was getting ready to write this week’s travel theme, I found myself locked out of the house. As I waited for someone with another key to arrive, I stared in anguish through th…

Embracing neutrality for this week's #travel  theme

#photography   #travelphotography  
While bright colours are great at attracting attention, gentle neutrals allow the eye to linger over details. I had a look through my photos for shots that contained predominantly neutral colours a…

Sometimes life rushes by so quickly I have to remind myself to just breathe. So to slow things down a little this week, here are some photos that remind me to take things easy once in a while. The …

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.
