Travel Theme: Transport

This is my first time entering Ailsa travel theme photo challenge. I’ve seen many entries on Cee’s and other’s bloggers spaces over the months. I’m adding mine to this challenge that so many people are having fun with.

This week’s travel theme is Transport. I don’t go out of my way to take photos of means of transport, but I have loads of these photos in my archives. Here are some of them, taken on my travels in the last 12 months or so.

The photo of the scooter next to the Berlin wall below was perfectly set up, ready for me to snap away. I had nothing to do with it other than chance upon the scene.

Trams are ubiquitous forms of transport in Lisbon. Tourists love them. They scrape and clink up and down the narrow cobblestoned streets, the ground trembling as they go past.

A cross between a tram and an elevator, this is the best way to navigate the steeps streets from the riverside.

From the streets of Lisbon to the mountains north of Johannesburg, this gaily coloured rustbucket sits abandoned in the shade of a large tree.

And what better way to arrive in Barcelona that on a yatch, sailing the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean?

An abandoned bike, dreams of better adventures on a Sunday afternoon…

And more boats, fishing boats, gaily coloured all, named after the wives, mothers or daughters of the fishermen who captain them.

    1. Some of it is, left standing as a reminder never to allow history to repeat itself. There is a memorial at Checkpoint Charlie and the wall is decorated with murals (and errant graffiti in parts). It’s haunting to visit.
