Thursday Doors, June 16

I spent three days in my hometown, Ljubljana. In fact, I’m just finishing the last piece of dad’s blueberry strudel. Yum.

When on a stroll around the house of my parents where I grew up (the story is here), I realised only when it was ending that I’d been shooting doors again. Too. Subconsciously. Here they are. The last is my parents’ entryway from the outside.

This was Bežigrad in the north of Ljubljana, the ones below were taken in the centre. It surprised me a little to realise how much I love this city. More information in the captions. And welcome to have a look for yourselves one day.

    Some gorgeous doors in this collection and a funicular too.
    So how was the blueberry strudel?

    1. Hehe, Norm, yum yum! Haven’t taken the funicular though, at all yet. The first time I took amore up to the castle, we walked. And it was winter! When we reached the top, he saw that there was the funicular, the little street train, and no less the road, for cars, that leads up there. And yet we walked. I don’t think he’ll ever forgive me.

    1. Thanks, Dan. I had a bit of a funicular fun too. I was trying hard to get a good photo of it but they are all just average. Will post one more one day. Ours is REALLY short, though.

    Well you never fail to bring gorgeous doors to Thursday 🙂
    I love the wooden ones with the round windows and iron work, with the bicycle in front. Great composition.
    And now I want blueberry strudel…am I feeling industrious? I don’t know. lol

    1. Thank you, Joey, I’m glad you like my hometown doors as well. You mean industrious enough to make it or eat it or go pick blueberries?

        Heh, the blueberries don’t come in here for over a month, but I have some storebought. Do I want to make dough and coulis? Do I? I don’t know. Right now I just want to drink my coffee 😛

  7. I looked up the funicular and found a site with pictures of it with people in it and I am just thrilled. I would love to ride it. I have been on funiculars in Pittsburgh, PA, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, and I would like to add this one. Who knows!

    1. 😀 Oh, Claudia, I’m glad that you looked it up but then you also saw how very short it is! I think the ride must take just a few minutes. But the castle for sure is worth visiting, as you will see when you get your first postcard.

      1. Oh, fantastic!

        You know, the other 2 funiculars (or inclines, as some people call them) that I have been on also are pretty short in length. But they cover a lot of vertical height that would be other wise difficult to travel. I know in Pittsburgh there used to be quite a few of these and they were used to connect parts of the city (it is very hilly) but now there are only 2 and mostly for tourists.

      2. OMG. I can’t believe it. Thanks for the heads-up. This was like a little trip for me, to read this, and remember my own experiences here!

    You always find such interesting doors to feature and today was no different. What I liked the most however, weren’t doors. First – is that a monster sized hydrangea beside your parent’s entrance-way? OMG!! My hydrangeas are such under-achievers. I need to show them this photo!

    Secondly, I love the photo of the Greek shop on Trubarjeva. It’s the little window painted on the wall to match the doors that really caught my eye. So cute!

    1. Hihi, they have been this big around there since I was little, if not bigger. But that is not the entrance of my parents, rather a block of flats near by. The green vines on chianti wall – that one is my parents’. And thank you for looking and seeing beyond doors. 🙂
