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 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”

Thursday Doors 25/8/22: August 2021

As I was choosing photos for my most recent 2021 Calendar post, many doors obediently popped up, begging me to make a Thursday Doors post with them. Who am I to say no. Here they are then, the majority from Ljubljana, a few from Maribor, Slovenia’s city #2, and the last five from Italy toContinue reading “Thursday Doors 25/8/22: August 2021”

August 2021

I’m still here, just less so. It’s the time of month to look back a year and re-experience my last year’s August. How are you? I miss you and your blogs. I’m still in Slovenia, waiting for the basketball Euro Championship to begin (and end) before I return to Tuscany. It is a completely differentContinue reading “August 2021”

Happy Branko birthday!

Today is my father’s birthday and we have been celebrating all weekend. This post will have three galleries: of dogs, of goodies, and of our past year together. It’s not every year that you hit 77, currently the most popular Slovenian number: This year we are together on your birthday for a change, but throughoutContinue reading “Happy Branko birthday!”

Last photo of April

Happy May 1st, happy birthday to my other uncle Rajko, happy end of April, happy new moon, and happy beginning of the second round of the NBA playoffs! Today I spent with my visitors from Slovenia, who are travelling around Tuscany, and it felt really good. I can still feel the sun on my face.Continue reading “Last photo of April”

Day 22 & CFFC: Water

Seven rivers from here and there and some words as long as they still flow. Prompt 22: “In honor of today’s being the 22nd day of Na/GloPoWriMo 2022, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that uses repetition. You can repeat a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination ofContinue reading “Day 22 & CFFC: Water”
