Thursday Doors 23/3/23: Capalbio Scalo primary school 1.
When I returned from my summer vacation in Slovenia last September, the primary school in our little town held not one but three surprises.

They are all from around hereContinue reading “Thursday Doors 2/3/23: Last of 2022 doors”
Happy birthday, travelling uncle!
Let’s have a look at the past year in red and green. You always need to wear this red shirt when we go to nature! First you came to pick me up in Tuscany in June and then delivered me back safely three and a half months later, when we went on our memorable daytripContinue reading “Happy birthday, travelling uncle!”
Here we go, back in time for one year again. This is the beginning of my seventh Calendar series. It’s true that I don’t take as many photos as I used to, but finding twenty last January photos that I wish to gather in this post was not hard. It starts with the first photoContinue reading “January 2022”
