Pairing up for this week's travel theme
Just as the two main US presidential candidates announced their running partners, a wedding invitation arrived in the post for me. It seems like everyone is getting paired up these days, so here …

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…

Doing the 'write' thing for this week's #travel   #photography  theme. Join in! #travelphotography  
After last week’s sporty theme I thought something more cerebral might serve to balance things out, so here’s an homage to writing in all its variations, starting with some colourful sp…

Going beyond the pale for this week's #travelphotography  theme.
#travel   #photography  
Although a lot of my photographs feature bright, fierce colours, I am just as drawn to the softer palette of pastels, like the delicate pink of these very hard-to-find wild Irish pink primroses. I …

Hands and their applications in this week's #travel   #photography  challenge. #travelphotography  
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…

Happy 4th from the oul' country. #travel   #travelphotography   #ireland  
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…

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…

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.

Join in the fun by liking Where's my backpack? here on Google+.

Quick, friendly and professional. Proper studio set up with great photo results, as opposed to the hideous overhead fluorescent light setup in every pharmacy I visited advertising professional passport photos. Save yourself time, anguish and money and just go straight to these guys.
