After my brief encounter with Rome's talking statues, I went looking for other memorable statues I have found on my travels. I will never forget the heartwarming statue of Greyfriars Bobby in Edinb...

Think pink!
After a long and arduous winter that felt like it was never going to end, yesterday marked the vernal equinox up here in the northern hemisphere. As if to mark the occasion, when I was out walking ...

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.
