Funny how one can completely forget such a pleasant day. It was the last day of last May when I saw Flavia for the last time (for now). We had lunch in her Ostia by the sea, which is practically still greater Rome, and then strolled a little first in the city where we hadContinue reading “Thursday Doors 23/2/23: Ostia”

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 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.”
Thursday Doors 17/2/22: Cerveteri 2.
Today we say goodbye to Cerveteri, its doors and Flavia. This late August trip last year was our last getaway. As you can tell, I miss outings like this and then don’t go anywhere. It’s still a bit chilly, but it’s not that. My feet are hurting but it’s not (only) that either. I’m inContinue reading “Thursday Doors 17/2/22: Cerveteri 2.”
Thursday Doors 10/2/22: Cerveteri 1.
A hop back to August when Flavia and I had our last year’s only getaway. A week or so later she was off to Iraq for work. Ah, how well we did our getaways and how I miss them! So many giggles and jokes, doors for me and windows for her, new places, beauty, freshContinue reading “Thursday Doors 10/2/22: Cerveteri 1.”
Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.
With this post we say goodbye to Santa Severa, that’s why I’m letting several non-door photos take part too, for you to get the feeling of how gloriously this day ended. It was a hot day in September 2020. My uncle was on a visit and we met with Flavia in Tarquinia, from where fourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.”
Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.
This year looks like a good year for finishing stuff. I try to keep a neat blog but sometimes things are left horribly unfished (and even unfinished). This is the museum inside the Santa Severa castle and its doors. Last summer on my previous blog we finally reached the museum in the third Thursday DoorsContinue reading “Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.”
