Last for now, that is, just for now. Make no mistake, I plan to return there this summer or even for Easter. But until I do, here is the last reminder from this summer what a beauty Piran is and how many spectacular doors and views it offers. We start with the mysterious hole inContinue reading “Thursday Doors 2/2/23: Last of Piran doors”

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: Last September 1st in Pitigliano
Today I wish to look back exactly one year and revisit Pitigliano and some of its doors in the splendid company of Crystal and Pedro from Oregon. Where did one year go? But first this: Today is the first day of school in Slovenia, the first day of the hunting season in Tuscany, and thisContinue reading “Thursday Doors: Last September 1st in Pitigliano”
Thursday Doors 11/8/22: Koper 3.
Here is the last door post from my June daytrip to Koper with doors surrounding Carpaccio Square which seemingly grew overnight. In my teenage years I used to visit Koper often, even more often than Piran, and yet when my poet friend and I turned the corner, I couldn’t believe my eyes. A pretty squareContinue reading “Thursday Doors 11/8/22: Koper 3.”
Thursday Doors 28/7/22: Piran in July
All these doors were captured this month on the coast of Slovenia. There are worse times and places to be. All but two, that is. Yesterday, just as I was choosing doors for this post, the following door came flying in by way of Crystal, my friend from Oregon who visited us last year andContinue reading “Thursday Doors 28/7/22: Piran in July”
Before July runs away from us, here is how this month went by last year in twenty images. I’m not pleased with my levels of creativity here in Slovenia at all. I’ve needed three weeks to come up with this post, July for my Calendar 2021. Mostly it’s because my body is using all theContinue reading “July 2021”
Thursday Doors with a view 30/6/22: Piran
Today’s doors, all taken this month in Piran, come with some sort of view, be it of the sea, of the town below, through the arch, or in a reflection. Welcome to join me on a stroll through Piran with the views I get on my dog walks. And the doors, the doors are alwaysContinue reading “Thursday Doors with a view 30/6/22: Piran”
Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany
My first three blogs were called Mexi Movie. I’m ready for a film of my life. In fact, this is what my blog is. A film with lots of doors. Prompt 14: “Today’s challenge is a fun one: write a poem that takes the form of the opening scene of the movie of your life.“ NineContinue reading “Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany”
Thursday Doors 3/3/22: Celleno 2.
September was ending but it was still hot. Two days before uncle returned to Slovenia we went on our second lovely road trip to see ghost museums and fairy-tale murals. This would be my last trip in company. I have showed you the ghost town Celleno, its open-air museum in the castle, and all theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/3/22: Celleno 2.”
CFFC: Curvy & archy
This is Italy for you: curves – from pasta too – and arches. I could easily use only photos from Niki’s Tarot Garden, but there is so much more. Let’s begin there though: Il Giardino dei tarocchi, or the Tarot Garden, is a sculpture park in the south of Tuscany 15 minutes from me whereContinue reading “CFFC: Curvy & archy”
