Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch

Today’s post is an immersive experience. You will be fed doors for lunch in Tuscany on a glorious September day. After yesterday’s new moon when our internet went on a 24-hour fast as well and I had to post via my phone, it’s so good to be back behind my big screen. Our connection isContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch”

Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno

I’m glad to be able to bring you the freshest doors from Tuesday when uncle, bestia and I made our wonderful three-stop trip of great variety. This was stop number two. Let’s hear you sing: “This toooown is coming like a ghoooost toooown.” ♫ Celleno in Lazio between Viterbo and Orvieto was abandoned in 1951Continue reading “Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno”

Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor

Two days before I returned to Tuscany from this year’s summer holidays in Slovenia, I took dad to his hometown Maribor for some maintenance. A certain bridge and swans looked so familiar. This day provided material for three posts already: first there were Thursday Doors from the Betnava Castle where we also found Miss TreeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor”

Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran

I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see. These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from TuscanyContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran”

Thursday Doors 9/9/21: Padua

Here is the door winner of the busy week with our visitors in two countries: (what I thought was) Duomo di Padova from my first time in this city last Friday after passing it for eight years. For some reason I never saw any Padua church or door before, not even in a photo, andContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/9/21: Padua”

Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice

Even for Slovenians, “Stožice” is not the easiest word and then they put it in the name of the newly built Arena (well, from 2010). Ž is pronounced like the second g in garage and the stress is on o. Try it: sto-ži-tze. It is what this part of Ljubljana, a 15 minutes’ walk fromContinue reading “Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice”

Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor

This is one of those posts that transfer you to a place, and doors – doors are always somewhere near. This was last Saturday when I took father to his city of birth. First we stopped at a castle. We start with mom seeing us off and end with the best photo of the bunch,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor”

Thursday Doors 12/8/21: Ljubljana Rakovnik

Today only one church and its doors, but what a church! I’ve been seeing it from afar all my life, and only now thought to approach. I was blown away. It looks mighty Italian and yet it’s in Ljubljana, my birthtown in Slovenia, which I’m about to leave once again. By next Thursday I’ll beContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/8/21: Ljubljana Rakovnik”

Thursday Doors 5/8/21: Piran 1.

After one week of doorliday, Dan is back and I have a new blog. Here are some doors from Piran on the Slovenian coast from two weeks ago. Welcome to my new blog, sixth in a row. It shall go on as before, with nice big photos and a breath of fresh air. You doContinue reading “Thursday Doors 5/8/21: Piran 1.”
