Thursday Doors, 30/1/20: Happy birthday, Liz!

Today’s doors happened on two days in June 2017 which I spent with the birthday girl. The Internet proves a great matchmaker once again.










First a bit of soundtrack: a happy song by a trio of fabulous Italian solo artists who did an album and went on a tour together. I know for sure that Liz likes one of them, Daniele Silvestri on the piano, and I love how much fun they have together. As will we.

In 2017, the Eastcoaster Liz, who blogs at Fetching the World and whom I met online, embarked on a 10-day organised tour of Italy together with two friends from California.

We got together twice: the day before their tour started we spent in Rome, and the day after it ended we visited Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio. It took three years but this March Liz is due to return and spent some time with us.

And today she is celebrating her birthday somewhere far where the water is turquoise and you can enter the sea on horseback.

Cin cin and the happiest of birthdays, Liz! One more month and you’ll get here and it will be one endless celebration.

To celebrate now, here is a selection of doors from our two days. Oh, and do have a look at this week’s post by our Thursday Doors host. Norm was here too and is rounding up his Capalbio doors series. You might see someone you recognise.

And now some doors from Rome and the Umbria region. Italy is a many-splendored thing.

      1. Guess you can tell I’ve never been … but find it interesting; not just a big color white/tan/brown block. I don’t know about the tree; never seen a pom tree … I just liked the colors and placement, thought it dressed up the entry a bit.

  1. I know I say it every single time I visit your door posts, but you really do have the most magnificent selection of doors in Italy. The churches alone!!!

    The photo of Liz, taking a photo at what I assume is Civita di Bagnoregio, overlooking the hills, makes me want to walk into that scene. Wow!

    1. That’s nice, Joanne. I wish you could hop right in. It was really hot, though, much too hot to play tourists but we didn’t have a choice. That shot she is taking is actually from Civita di Bagnoregio down to the valley below. The landscape there is quite peculiar, rather moonlike.

  2. So much beauty all in one post…sigh…it’s almost too much to take in one viewing. It also reminds me that I’d like to spend more time in Rome but preferably (hint, hint) with someone local who knows it well ๐Ÿ˜‰
    If I must choose a favourite from this collection it would be the reflection shot of the cathedral and Liz. Wonderful post!

    1. Thank you, Norm. Do you mean to say it’s… mexcessive? ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s like Italy, really, and you know how it goes. Oh sure, we’d be glad to take you around Rome. There is so much I haven’t seen yet. And I’m sure Flavia has much to show of her city as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I was amazed how fast I recognized Orvieto cathedral when I saw the highlighted picture of the post. It seems that the amount of time a stared at the front pays off ๐Ÿ™‚ I was there for just one day, but I fell in love with that church.

    Great pictures. Great longing.

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
