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”

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”

September 2021

Last September was such a happening month. Here it is in twenty images for my monthly Calendar series. Let me continue right where I stopped in my previous post: I showed you our seven days together with Crystal and Pedro which were spent in Tuscany and Slovenia. Some of today’s photos are from this timeContinue reading “September 2021”

Seven days in last September

When I started choosing photos from September 2021 for my monthly calendar post, I realised it won’t go as easy. The first week was so busy that it deserves its own post. This is it. The proper September 2021 post will follow soon, and on Thursday there will be doors only from this eventful month.Continue reading “Seven days in last September”

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 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran

Here are the last doors from Piran for this year as a goodbye, with some weather, music and Luka news. Today I left the coast and after a two-hour drive in heavy downpour arrived in Ljubljana in the centre of Slovenia, where I get to hear Konstrakta live with her band in a couple ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran”
