Thursday Doors 23/2/23: Ostia

Funny how one can completely forget such a pleasant day.

It was the last day of last May when I saw Flavia for the last time (for now). We had lunch in her Ostia by the sea, which is practically still greater Rome, and then strolled a little first in the city where we had gelato, and then in the nearby woods which felt really good in the heat.

Not only I forgot that I had these doors to post but I also forgot what we had for lunch, which is highly atypical for me. And I don’t even have any photos of it.

It must be because I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t believe that after more than half a year of isolation I was finally walking somewhere NEW, with another living soul for company that was not a dog.

I was busy chatting and didn’t click much. These are almost all the photos I took. Except in the woods, I clicked more often there but, alas, I didn’t see any doors. You will see.

So yes, I didn’t need to go somewhere new this week. Again. Still. But I will. Spring is on.

  1. Cheerful is such an appropriate word fo rthe road by the sea. And we love what you love, so keep doing what you do.

    Il Krapfen doesn’t sound Italian, but it’s a wonderful door.

    Oddly, the house in the woods has a certain appeal to it.

    I’m glad you found these, Manja. I wouldn’t know what to do if you ran out of doors.

  2. I certainly understand the feelings of being overwhelmed on that first few trips after “stay-at-home” lockdowns. It felt so good. This looks like a breezy, colorful, and lovely destination. I think my favorite (other than the first photo of the restaurant by the sea) was the cheeky balconies. Take care!
