Travel theme: Mystical

Mystical, Ailsa of Where’s my backpack says, is an evocative term with many nuances. I chose this word because it can be interpreted in so many ways. It can mean spiritually symbolic, otherworldly, ethereal or mysterious. I also love how this word sounds when you speak it aloud, and I can’t help but associate it with mists that conceal the everyday, cloaking the mundane in a veil of mystery. The verb ‘to mystify’; to make mysterious or obscure, is derived from the words mystic and mystery. Ooh, the possibilities are endless.

Did you know that water is very mystical? Well, I didn’t, until I saw my selection of photos and the one element that links them: water. Will you join me in these mystical places and see where they will lead us?

And of course a photo of one of the most mystical beings on earth

Beautiful entries in Ailsa’s Mystical Travel theme at Where’s my backpack.

  1. Ik heb alleen de foto’s gekeken. Prachtige herfst foto’s van het water. 🙂
    Maar ik ga toch voor de laatste. Dat kleine mystieke wezen. Waarvan er nu een naast mijn toetsenbord ligt. Op haar koninklijke kussentje. 😉
