Thursday Doors, October 19 2017

Admit it, I could be showing you just a handful of doors and towns in a loop and you wouldn’t even know it. True, they start to blend one into the other after a while but this only allows you to notice little differences. This is Castagnetto Carducci, another small town on the top of…

After an entire week without a single blog post we are back to Maribor and its doors. I don’t have any excuse, really. I’ve been blogging regularly for 3+ years and this is the longest I’ve been without a post. For the last few days I’ve been feeling flu-ely but it’s not just that. Blogging…

For the Dying Town, as it’s called, Civita di Bagnoregio in Umbria (ADD-IT: actually in Lazio by some 10 km) feels surprisingly alive and welcoming, even in the heat. When Liz from Fetching the World – who showed you some doors from here already – told me that one of the towns she wanted to…

Today I take you to my birth town, Ljubljana in Slovenia, to see some of its doors and one funny graffiti. If I can find it. It was hot this August. Most of my holidays in the country of origin I spent by the sea but I managed to reach the capital too. It’s only…

Thursday Doors, September 21 2017

This week we are back to normal. Norm is here, Slovenia is the basketball champion of Europe, and here are some normal doors from Rome. All of these were taken in the same territory, the Monteverde district of Rome around the street Via Folco Portinari which is my base camp when I’m in Rome: the…

Thursday Doors, Sept. 14 2017 – guest host

This week I’m stepping in for Norm as the host of our regular Thursday Doors challenge. Door lovers of the world, welcome! Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by…

After Joey it’s Dan to the rescue, guest-hosting Norm’s Thursday Doors. For Dan, and all of you, a bunch of green doors. I remember posting a lovely green door once and Dan commented that he doesn’t see green colour all that well. Here are doors in different shades of greenness for him to test his…

Today, with Joey at the Thursday Doors hosting position, we shall be in flowers. And pots and plants. I don’t know about you, but Slovenians, when they get drunk, claim to be “in flowers”. No, I’m not drunk, merely slightly euphoric. The reason for that and for a slightly late posting is the first Slovenian…

The town is called Milje if you ask us, and Muggia if you ask them. It lies in Italy just across the border, that’s why there are many Slovenian families living behind these doors. I remember vividly reading Ishita’s 10 Charming Small Towns in Italy post on her Italophilia blog. I hadn’t known many of them but…

Thursday Doors, August 17 2017

Today just one door. But it’s all-encompassing. I’ve always found it hard to imagine how one building can contain all books published by a nation. And yet it does. Luckily, the nation is rather small. During my January Graffiti Tour of Ljubljana I told the guide that I liked taking photos of doors especially, and…

Out of endless Piran doors, here are some that caught my eye this time. Yesterday I had a sobering walk through the centre of Ljubljana. It was a vulgar display of availability for money. In comparison, Slovenian coast still has its spirit, at least Piran does. And I’m not talking about the smell of pee,…

Thursday Doors, August 3, 2017

In need of a new door? How about a cinema under the stars with the view? Today’s edition has two parts. Soon after I started posting Thursday Doors, father suggested that if I wanted doors I could go in search of a door-selling shop. I liked the idea but I needed two years or so…

Thursday Doors, July 27 2017

Today’s doors from the south of Slovenia come with a lunch and a view. I remember well when my friend Aleš – who together with his Mihela, one of my two best university buddies, became a parent half a year ago – posted the door of his family tourist farm on Facebook. I promised him…

“Čuj ti, v Mariboru si!” (Hey you, you are in Maribor!) A speedy look at some Maribor doors. Second biggest Slovenian city. Father’s birthplace where he is pointing (point at the door, it’s Thursday!). National soccer champion, one step away from the Champions League. Nuff said.

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…

Thursday Doors, July 6 2017

This is how Siena, The Door Queen, feels like from the inside. I might have posted some of these doors before, but not these photos. These were taken in this order in a couple of hours the last time I was there, with my sister in April. And now it’s July and as I passed dried…
