Thursday Doors 26/1/23: More Piran doors

I had a hunch that there must be heaps of doors left from Piran on the Slovenian coast, where my parents are and where I spent last summer. This is correct. These are all from June. I had several Thursday Doors posts from Piran this summer and yet failed to show all the doors. IfContinue reading “Thursday Doors 26/1/23: More Piran doors”

Happy birthday, travelling uncle!

Let’s have a look at the past year in red and green. You always need to wear this red shirt when we go to nature! First you came to pick me up in Tuscany in June and then delivered me back safely three and a half months later, when we went on our memorable daytripContinue reading “Happy birthday, travelling uncle!”

Complete Calendar 2021

Before the new year arrives, I still need to deal not with this one but with the one before. Here is 2021 with one photo per month. As I have done five years before – links to previous calendars are listed below the gallery – here is 2021 as it was originally planned, with oneContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2021”

Thursday Doors 15/12/22: Best of 2022

Are you ready for a door feast? Here are two massive Mexcessive galleries with a selection of Thursday Doors posted this year. I love doing this kind of overview posts, especially since I don’t need to upload anything new, merely look back in my Media and select the favourites. And since this is the lastContinue reading “Thursday Doors 15/12/22: Best of 2022”

Thursday Doors 1/12/22: Remains of 2021

“What technology would you be better off without, why?” Did WordPress just ask you the same question? 😮 As I opened a new post, there it was, this question to start things off. What next, WP? Will you write the ending for me too? I will not think of technology, nor indeed about the DallasContinue reading “Thursday Doors 1/12/22: Remains of 2021”

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 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana

A memory of a summer day with perhaps not as many doors but with the kind of urban sights that I miss the most. I’m a city girl, no way around it. My tenth year in rural Tuscany finds me relaxed, still marvelling at the pine-green and sky-blue palette that surrounds me, and yet piningContinue reading “Thursday Doors 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana”

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 13/10/22: Maribor 4.

Let’s continue with our Maribor door tour. Today we reach the park of my childhood where my grandma took me so often. Such lovely memories. Only about one half of the photos below actually contain a door, but I wished to show you our stroll to the park and The Three Ponds in more detail.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 13/10/22: Maribor 4.”

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”
