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 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 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”

Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021

I have already showed you my last year’s September in Italy and Slovenia in my two previous posts, only its doors were missing since I’ve been saving them for today. First of all, I wish health and safety to you all. These things are more than just little treats or small mercies. Let them last.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021”

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.”
