November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. Let’s start with a photo that my uncle in Ljubljana sent me almost three weeks ago, of his Japanese maple in all its November splendour. Next, today is theContinue reading “November 2021”

Thursday Doors 17/11/22: Ischia di Castro 4.

Let’s say goodbye to the doors and views of Ischia di Castro with this post. This has been a lovely half an hour, spread around four weeks of Thursday Doors. It was the end of this September and during his vigorous swimming on his last visit of the summer uncle agreed to this one roadContinue reading “Thursday Doors 17/11/22: Ischia di Castro 4.”

Thursday Doors 10/11/22: Ischia di Castro 3.

Let’s continue our stroll through this tiny town near Farnese that keeps on giving us doors and feeding us views. Six minutes it took me to take all today’s photos. As I stroll, I click left and right to what draws my eyes, without thinking, framing, cropping much. Imagine: If you were there instead ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 10/11/22: Ischia di Castro 3.”

Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.

A church, some flowers, a dog and doors doors doors. Let’s continue our stroll through one more small Italian town, Ischia di Castro, which started last week on my blog and happened one month ago. This was the last time I saw something new. The places I like the most don’t care whether you stopContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.”

Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.

Yes, I know, there is a cat above, but this post is still the beginning of a new door series from a small town that is not even in Tuscany but in Lazio. Ischia di Castro saw me for the first time almost exactly one month ago, when uncle, bestia and I stopped there forContinue reading “Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.”

Thursday Doors 20/10/22: Maribor 5.

Today is the day when we conclude our Maribor door tour from last month with some fine specimens that carry special significance, memories or name. Our sunny walk with my sister and uncle, which started in this post, lasted between 11.30 am and 4.30 pm on a September Monday, and included lunch, cake and aContinue reading “Thursday Doors 20/10/22: Maribor 5.”

Thursday Doors 6/10/22: Maribor 3

As a tribute to my father who returned from the hospital yesterday after Covid pneumonia, here is the third part of the doors from his Maribor as visited about a month ago. In my Thursday Doors post two weeks ago we reached the end of Koroška St., but now before reaching my grandma’s building weContinue reading “Thursday Doors 6/10/22: Maribor 3”

Last photos of September

Last month ended with the following four photos. I was thinking no drama for a change, alas, the final one says it all. Let’s start innocently, with the last photo from our daytrip with my uncle before he returned to Slovenia. Our day ended with a non-filtered Ichnusa, my uncle’s favourite beer, and a freshlyContinue reading “Last photos of September”

Thursday Doors 22/9/22: Maribor 2.

Here is the second part of Maribor doors. These are from Koroška Street in the centre of the city, which recently lost its traffic. Now, without traffic, you can stroll freely from door to door and between arches that lead to courtyards. Some are more cared for than others. When you reach the end ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 22/9/22: Maribor 2.”

Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1

This post is one day late. For the first time in ages, I had nothing yesterday. Not doors, I always have those, I didn’t have the spirit. It’s my last two days in Slovenia. I think it’s been raining for 48 hours. In the night non-stop thunder, which had bestia climbing all over the room,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1”
