Today the memory of an August afternoon spent in Koper, the fifth largest Slovenian city. By the look of it, it could also lie far away, in Argentina, maybe, or Honduras, or at least Italy. This biggest Slovenian port is located just below Trieste and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 15/11/18: Koper 1
This is a joint post, which means that you can experience this visit out of another pair of eyes. We certainly didn’t come to San Galgano Abbey for the doors but we left with some, as one does. You might have heard it already: a bit … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 8/11/18: San Galgano Abbey – Double Bill
Today’s entry takes us to the August day on which injections and doors were shot to ease the pain. And since it’s November 1st, there must be a cemetery too. When I was in Slovenia for the summer, mother and I drove for half an … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 1/11/18: Mekinje & Kamnik
Here is a good idea if you plan to go to Slovenia: a medieval, well-preserved, picturesque town called Škofja Loka with a 150-year-old coffee and cake house, among other things. It goes without saying that they’ve got doors too. On this August day, the last … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 25/10/18: Škofja Loka I.
Today I present the first half of possibly all the doors of the village Nova vas in Slovenian Istria where we went for the garlic. Okay, and wine. The Garlic and Wine Festival is the annual event over one summer weekend when locals offer their … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 18/10/18: Nova vas
The witches of Apulia go door hunting. My mother has three friends who like to call themselves witches and like to go on tours. They are all around 70 and when my mom was 70, these friends gifted her a basket of tangerines and a … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 11/10/18: Apulia and Basilicata
I’m not sure who invented the word doorfie for a selfie in a door reflection, but today I’ve got an even newer word: Normie. That is, Norm in a door-shell. He has survived the attack of Tuscan doors and greets you all. There were some … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 4/10/18: Normies in Maremma
“Life’s too short for boring doors” could be the official slogan of our jolly little group. Let’s have more of the other kind. Small wonder that it was Norm, our chief, who wrote this in a comment to one of my Thursday Doors post on … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 27/9/18: Norm’s Doors 3
Welcome, all the good regular and irregular door people, and see the doors that most pleased our top door expert over the years. And #8!!!!! That’s it, I’m getting on a plane NOW and heading straight there. I’m going to knock on that door and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 20/9/18: More Norm’s doors
Today a special door selection from my first blog, of doors that caught the eye of our Thursday Doorman. “The day I set foot in Rome and start exploring for doors… well I don’t know if I’ll ever leave the place.” This was the comment … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 13/9/18: Norm mix I.
Another Thursday Doors edition that is more about the experience than doors themselves. It takes place in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where everybody comes lately. Savc is the term of endearment for Savsko naselje where certain rappers stem from, including my mother. Here are … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 6/9/18: Ljubljana Savc
A bunch of almost forgotten one-year-old door photos plead to be seen by you all, so I said yes. As I was going through my August 2017 folders for yesterday’s colourful Lens-Artists photo challenge, I found a multitude of doors that haven’t yet seen the light … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 30/8/18: Lokev & Co.
The end of the world, the ocean, the countries, the history. Or the beginning, you be the judge. Doors don’t mind, they lead into both directions. Trieste in Italy next to Slovenia at the end of the Adriatic Sea is a rather peculiar destination. Some … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 23/8/18: Trieste
This is the day for which I owe an apology for my severe lack of preparedness to amore, my two patient friends and almost all the kind people of Velenje who helped me search for a wrongly memorised address. Still, all’s well that ends well, … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 16/8/18: Velenje
I have no time at all but I’m not letting a Thursday slip by doorless. I have manymanymanymany doors and occasions to share, slowly but surely. I’m still in Slovenia and these two weeks have been slow on my blog because amore is visiting and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 9/8/18: Ljubljana Moste
Let me invite you to another memory photo walk where the point is more on entrances as part of architecture and doors are more or less accessories. But there are other signs that life is good there. My sister and friend took me on this walk … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 19/7/18: Ljubljana Bežigrad
Let’s forget about Slovenia for a moment and return to my Costa d’Argento (Silver Coast) in the south of Tuscany. Cosa might mean What? in Italian but it’s also an ancient historic site and that’s where I was headed a month ago on an open-door day. How … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 12/7/18: Ansedonia
All this happened on the way to the cemetery. Doors are where you see them, just don’t look too closely: those of Italy are closed yet and now Slovenia is about to close its doors as well. We used to do it on November 1st, The Day … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 5/7/18: Ljubljana
Today, a collection of Roman doors without much ado or words. I’ve been driving almost for seven hours today, the last part on the curvy road up in the Slovenian hills in an attempt to circumvent a road block. The air was fresh. I’m almost … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 28/6/18: Rome
Since my travelling uncleberry is coming over right now, here is another batch of his door photos from his recent visit to Morocco. Today we visit Marrakesh with him to admire its architecture, not merely doors. I’m quite in awe! The arches are omnipresent so … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 21/6/18: Marrakesh
