Multicoloured: Ailsa’s Weekly Travel Theme

http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/09/13/travel-theme-multicoloured/

Get your multicoloured photos at the ready because now it’s your turn to unleash a rainbow. If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Multicoloured

Looking forward to seeing your kaleidoscopes of colour.

When thinking of Multicoloured, I usually think back to all the lead glass windows in the cathedrals in Europe that I have seen over the years. Some of them are many hundreds of years old. And when the light shines through, it is beautiful to me.  And when you play Gregorian music to that, it is such an intense emotion that I feel in such places.

One of the most multicoloured places I have ever been to, is Kinsale in Ireland. They know how to make a place look interesting!

And finally- any Fishing harbour is usually filled with colourful boats, and people!

  5. What a shame … I thought my idea was an original one… And look at this! Two staind glass windows… instead of one!
    But I totaly agree in what you write about them. They give me a similar feeling.
    I prefer your fifth photo from the South African harbour, though. The bright colours of it cheer me up while here it’s getting colder and the rain is falling!
