A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Boat

That’s what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don’t tell her. You have to remember always that she’s the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune. /M.Morpurgo/



Land was created to provide a place for boats to visit. /B.Atkinson/



Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part. /H.Broch/

Travel theme: The Four Elements

Love is the affinity which links and draws together the elements of the world… Love, in fact, is the agent of universal synthesis. /P.Teilhard de Chardin/

Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Travel Theme: Mystical

Being both feet on the ground strongly(how could a Taurus not be?!) I have always perceived everything to do with the water element a bit mystical for me. Thus there’ s a connection between the water and Ailsa’ s Travel Theme this week.

The glacier in Jostedalsbreen National Park, Norway. And against all laws of physics still very mystical to me.

So many men altogether on the frozen lake Ķīšezers in Latvia – a bit of a mystery, isn’ t it? Especially if you can see this view every single day through winter.

The mystical power of the wave on the beach in Porto, Portugal.

Not “photoshoped” shot of the Sozopol peninsula in Bulgaria that holds a certain mystery for me, too.
