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.”

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

Best of Thursday Doors 2021

Since this is the last Thursday Doors post of the year, let’s have 30 of my favourite doors posted in 2021. This year has been spread over two blogs, so the first half and a bit of my Thursday Doors can be found on my previous blog Mexcessive. With August we have all moved toContinue reading “Best of Thursday Doors 2021”

Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors

Today a mix of happy doors with a cheer, a tree, a light, a bird or a bestia. I’m really glad that I forgot to post these two special door gifts from Oregon last week since they fit perfectly in today’s post. Every day when I’m gifted a door is a holiday. Crystal sends theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors”

Thursday Doors 2/12/21: Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce

Many of you will remember this town with fairy-tale murals from my recent public art series. And if you don’t, this is an invitation. There are some doors that I’ve got saved. This is a small but surprisingly vibrant town in Lazio north of Rome between Viterbo and Orvieto. As I was choosing which photosContinue reading “Thursday Doors 2/12/21: Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce”

Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.

Last week we came to this pretty town with a fish farm in its middle, today we climb the hill to the old town and find a most excellent meal. And doors are always nearby too, except when they are hidden by flowers so pretty that you don’t mind it at all. Since I willContinue reading “Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.”

Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.

This is the first of two Santa Fiora door posts from my first time there in early September. I chose this lovely sounding and looking town to show it to my two visitors from Oregon sight unseen and we weren’t sorry. This is chestnut territory below Monte Amiata, the highest peak of lower Tuscany, whichContinue reading “Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.”

Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Because sometimes you need doors that come with mom. These are the doors and more of Bežigrad in the north of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. All today’s photos were taken this summer five minutes or less from my parents’ house which was my home too for 20+ years. Even when I left, my newContinue reading “Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano

San JimmyJano, JohnRH called it in a comment to my Tuesday’s post, and I find it hilarious. Here it is, my first time in this small but highly touristy Tuscan town this September. When uncle and bestia and I went on our first autumn daytrip, I chose this famous multi-tower town on purpose as ourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano”

Thursday Doors 28/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 2.

This is the second post with the doors around the summer residence of many Popes called Rocca dei Pappi in Montefiascone, as seen on my first visit one month ago. In my first post two weeks ago uncle, bestia and I reached the highest point of Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena in the province of Viterbo,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 28/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 2.”

Thursday Doors, 21/10/21: Ljubljana

Since today celebrates my poet friend, we stop the regular posting and look back at the day when I saw him last. Certain doors are waiting to be showed from that day as if they knew today would be Thursday. Whenever I’m in Slovenia we manage to get together at least once, and I appreciateContinue reading “Thursday Doors, 21/10/21: Ljubljana”

Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch

Today’s post is an immersive experience. You will be fed doors for lunch in Tuscany on a glorious September day. After yesterday’s new moon when our internet went on a 24-hour fast as well and I had to post via my phone, it’s so good to be back behind my big screen. Our connection isContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch”

Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno

I’m glad to be able to bring you the freshest doors from Tuesday when uncle, bestia and I made our wonderful three-stop trip of great variety. This was stop number two. Let’s hear you sing: “This toooown is coming like a ghoooost toooown.” ♫ Celleno in Lazio between Viterbo and Orvieto was abandoned in 1951Continue reading “Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno”

Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor

Two days before I returned to Tuscany from this year’s summer holidays in Slovenia, I took dad to his hometown Maribor for some maintenance. A certain bridge and swans looked so familiar. This day provided material for three posts already: first there were Thursday Doors from the Betnava Castle where we also found Miss TreeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor”

Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran

I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see. These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from TuscanyContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran”

Thursday Doors 9/9/21: Padua

Here is the door winner of the busy week with our visitors in two countries: (what I thought was) Duomo di Padova from my first time in this city last Friday after passing it for eight years. For some reason I never saw any Padua church or door before, not even in a photo, andContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/9/21: Padua”

Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice

Even for Slovenians, “Stožice” is not the easiest word and then they put it in the name of the newly built Arena (well, from 2010). Ž is pronounced like the second g in garage and the stress is on o. Try it: sto-ži-tze. It is what this part of Ljubljana, a 15 minutes’ walk fromContinue reading “Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice”

Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor

This is one of those posts that transfer you to a place, and doors – doors are always somewhere near. This was last Saturday when I took father to his city of birth. First we stopped at a castle. We start with mom seeing us off and end with the best photo of the bunch,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor”
