Coast to coast

This was yesterday’s coast to coast Slovenian style. Of course, we only have one, a short one at that. The road trip took us from Piran via Ljubljana, where we greeted sister, uncle and my fir tree, and then continued to Maribor on the other side of the country, second biggest Slovenian city and the…

Thursday Doors, July 13 2017

Since I’m off to where it all started this weekend, have a compilation of Slovenian doors. All of these were taken in 2015 or earlier, when I was not (yet so) dedicated to doors. Still, I was already posting them and you may recognise a few. Some of them have emotional value. The last one…

Five windows of my soul

All these five windows must reflect some of my soul, or why else would they, out of all windows, draw my camera’s attention? Let’s have a closer look. These photos were all taken along Slovenian coast on the same day. Have a good Monday! Photo: © signature mmm

Thursday Doors, January 26 2017

Today it’s time for the second part of Izola doors with two Piran doors sneaking in. Izola is one of the few yet pretty towns on the short Slovenian coast. We had a short but eventful stroll during which we met some people, got invited to a concert and bestia got a pig’s ear. As…

WPC: Nomen est omen

The name is a sign, they say. No wonder then that my name means “eat” in Roman dialect. An overview of my blog in the last week shows that I posted six times even though I’ve been visiting my country of origin, and that pleases me. Let’s see what there was: resilient mountains and hillocks as…

WPC: Re.silly.ence

Here it is, a new year, and this fact alone proves how resilient we are. Something else is beating us in the resilient game though, counting centuries when we count years. (We shall leave the sentence above as is and shall not prove it wrong by calculus.) Where I live now – southern Tuscany – mountains are…

Happy new year!

Happy new year 1917, pardon, 2017, from the highest and deepest that Slovenia has to offer. This is  the view of Triglav, the highest peak of Slovenia, above the Adriatic sea at Izola taken yesterday. And the erroneous year comes from mom’s greeting-card, and I loved it enough to repeat it. What is one hundred…

Thursday Doors, December 29

These doors are fresh from the oven (as my Christmas biscuits from Siracusa will be soon – they were so popular that I’m having my second go at them). Today was lovely: first we went to the nature reserve Škocjanski zatok – first three photos – and then we visited Izola, another town on (short)…
