To Orvieto

To Orvieto or not to Orvieto is not a question. I WISH EVERYBODY COULD GET A DOSE OF ITALY WHEN NEEDED. My new friends are about to cruise into it right about now but before we see what they will encounter, let’s see what all went on on my blog in the past week or…

What a happy day!

Even though Fonzie was left in good care, we spent a particularly happy day in Rome with three new friends, with both East and West Coast represented. Just as I was complaining about lack of human company. But first, as usually on the weekend, a recap of the past week on my blog. There were:…

WPC: Her heritage

Today marks one year since I posted my first post on this blog because my first blog was getting full. A good day to view one’s heritage. In one year I managed to fill it up with less than 40% of space remaining. Serves me right for always cramming my posts with too many photos. Can’t help…

Holy Movie Motors

After the day of birth, back to normal-ish. When do I not like a film? When it takes me for more stupid than I am. When do I like a film? When it makes me feel, wonder, when it opens my eyes or is ahead of me in some way. When it is worth my while, as…

WPC: A smoking hot danger!

One of the biggest dangers since it’s so addictive. Imagine the billions this industry is (still) hoarding. And then admit to yourself that you are a non-smoker. Before we look at a very few photos on the subject since it doesn’t deserve more, some other things first. As you may have heard, I have a…

I do I do I do I do I do

Yesterday was a lovely day in Rome, just right for a stroll in Villa Pamphili. Before I take you to park, here is the past week on my blog. There were: Bestia’s Sunday repose; birthday of my “slon”-loving friend with elephant photos and links to plenty of elephant posts; a view through my bedroom window; a…

WPC: Wonder lust – Wander list

Yes, I have my wander lust and list too. These are just some of the spots I have crossed out. My list is getting additions on an hourly basis, as soon as I see something appealing on blogs or Tweeter or Facebook. Normally I only include a destination if it’s under 3 hours’ drive from…

That’s Sunday for you

Right now he is at it again, just the pose is a little different. While Bestia relaxes on “his” sofa, let’s have a look at the recent activity on my blog. The past week was quite green, as is everything around me in April. There were: A look at surprisingly orderly Italian port city Civitavecchia; three…

WPC: Sur+prize

It’s best if you take everything as a surprise. After all, If you think about it – it is. I like to say that I don’t have any sense of direction because it’s good to keep getting surprised about where you are. Similarly, I’d never wish or even pay to know what the future holds. Especially…

WPC: Dense all days

This is Piran, Slovenia – dense all days. In the best sense possible. But first, as usually in the weekend, past week on my blog. I don’t know if these recaps are useful to anybody, but to me they give a sort of closure and a reminder of how time flies and that another week is gone…

Play nice, Planica

It’s Planica weekend in Slovenia, the biggest ski-jumping event of the season. Maybe that’s why my thoughts are jumping so much. Bear with me, there is a bottom-line. Not pretty, but it’s there. I feel all productive all of a sudden. I’ve organised my blog menu. See, up on the right? Many new items with subcategories, all…

WPC: Atop of the morning to ya

The title goes well with yesterday’s Fiesta, whereas the photos are two apiece from different tops I have climbed in my two countries. But first the last week on my blog lest I forget. There were quite a few topics: Last week’s subject of “wish” had me running for a pretty little church; I told you…

Four movie months

Let me ruin storytelling for you: if bad things are happening now, good things will happen by the end. The opposite is also true. The End. — Seth Lochhead (quotation reblogged from wildfiremovies) Recently I’ve discovered a film critic who I trust. I might not share her opinion on all films, and she is a major…

WPC: Wishful

When an atheist reaches out to a church on the prompt of “wish”, then you know we are in trouble. Since recently, the WPC theme is announced on Wednesdays instead of Fridays. I think Friday is the earliest I’d manage to post though. I like to add my weekly recap to my WPC posts, in case…

WPC: Top ten roads taken

I love this week’s Photo Challenge theme: The Road Taken. So that it’s not always just her wicked stepsister. We can moan all we want, imagine what could have happened to the moon and back, and yet there is nothing more useless than wondering about the road not taken. As if we could ever go back and…

WPC: A good match these days is hard to find

STILL, WHAT FOLLOWS ARE ENOUGH MATCHES TO LIGHT TWENTY FIRES. AND ONE SCARY GRAPH. First, as usually, here is the past week on my blog in bullet-points, which is better than bullets. There were: A photo story of my transfer from Slovenia to Italy with no regard to odds; an almost 360 degree view of Ljubljana from the Skyscraper and…
