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…

New baby blog

It’s got so easy: you want a new baby, you start a new blog. In the past there were only real babies or at least real book babies. Not saying that now it’s better, just less hassle with the placenta. After feeling the urge for a new blog and playing around with themes – so…

Thursday Doors, May 4 2017

May the 4th be with you and welcome to the weirdest edition of Thursday Doors. A collection of Talamone doors for those who see and seek them. I blame it on “Holy Motors” which I saw yesterday. Are you SURE you want to proceed? Photo: © signature mmm For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge.

Lily Island

This morning I woke up and thought of lilies and islands. The first time he took me there was during my first visit of him and Italy. No talk of the future (and barely any talk at all since his English was still in the making and my Italian was only theoretical), no worries and no dog….

Na zdravje, Alenka!

Bullfight continues into the month of May. Today celebrates my friend Alenka, the proof that internet brings closer. (Not that I need another proof, given where I am.) First let me salute all my other Taurus (girl)friends who will not be getting their own post for their birthdays (waaaah!) because there are just too many….

Happy birthday, Rajko!

First, a repeat of my favourite May 1st graffiti and then a celebration of my uncle who celebrates today. You never forget your first one. —May I might have only two uncles, but they are a handful. The first three photos were taken on your only visit in Tuscany so far and the rest during various…

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…

Thursday Doors, April 27 2017

Today will always stay in my memory as “The OF Day”, no matter how they call it now. The “OF” or “Osvobodilna fronta” was “The Liberation Front”, Slovenian anti-Fascist organisation that formed in 1941. As the Wikipedia says, “The Slovene Partisans were the armed wing of the Liberation Front, which fought in the beginning as a…

Sheer joy

Just a little Wednesday joy… …while I’m thinking of starting a new blog, to make myself write. One photo and up to 500 words per day. On one hand, I’m lacking structure and compliance in my life and hope I’d get it with a new blog, on the other, I know that this, my primary…

Bedroom window

Be me for a moment and have some camera fun. In my bedroom. These were taken some days ago, and today, today it’s a holiday in Italy. Some sort of liberation much have taken place. Sits well with us, we have just watched a hilarious Australian “The Little Death”. Beware every time you die a little….

Cin cin, Taja and sloni!

Not that I believe in horoscope, but I know my favourite kind of women: Taurus girls. It takes one to know one. And right about now we are starting to celebrate our birthdays, with one of the Three Graces leading the way (the third one is a Fish, however, and had hers yet): This post…

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…

Happy reading!

My life is a reading list. ― John Irving (quote reblogged from Logical Quotes) Yesterday my parents sent me an email wishing me a happy World Book Day. Isn’t that the sweetest? Technically it’s tomorrow but celebrations are going on already, in Slovenia as well. Thus the past night was The Night of the Book in…

2,770 candles for Rome

Eternity just got a bit longer: Rome celebrates its 2,770th birthday today. I want to say thank you to Sara from The Rover in Leather Jacket who alerted me to it. Have a look at her most recent post and give us your favourite words in any language in a comment. She will appreciate it…

Thursday Doors, April 20 2017

For today’s Thursday Doors we go back to the town of my birth, Ljubljana, Slovenia. It was a cold winter’s day when I took part in the free Ljubljana Graffiti Tour. I told Sandi, the organiser, that I’d got dressed as if I was going skiing and he concurred. At first it was just the two…
