Thursday Doors, 31/1/19: Piran

We have reached the end of January and to see it off here is a collection of Piran doors. If you don’t know where it is, the photo above is clear on it in two languages.

It seems that I love this new coral blog of mine so much that since I started it on the 1st I have posted on every single day in January! Never before in my 5-year blogging career (the 5th anniversary coming up in March) was I so regular.

And now I’m proud. Have a look at the front page, isn’t it inviting? It just makes you wish to click on this and that… Okay, okay, enough. We are here for some doors.

These 15 door photos are from the town of Piran on the Slovenian riviera. Slovenia has less than 50 km of coast, trapped between Trieste in Italy in the north and the Istria peninsula that continues towards Croatia in the south.

If you take the bus from the capital, Ljubljana, Piran is the last stop. It can take up to 3 hours, beware of slow busses. They skip the highway and instead meander through pretty little towns and villages and even once they reach the coast they seem to stop at all other towns first: Koper, Izola, Strunjan, Lucija, Portorož.

Piran is the last and you are glad for it. It is the one with the best light. It seems like a secret not everybody knows. When you reach it, you know that this is where certainty stops and if you wish to continue, you have to change countries, languages, everything you’ve known. And you do.

Piran, as the featured photo promises, is indeed at the end of the world as I knew it. But isn’t it reassuring to know that where the world ends there is ice cream?

    1. Thank you, SMSW! I was just posting the reminder for this post on Facebook, as I do every time, and chose to include your three favourites even though I know you’re not there. I’m so glad that you like my favourites. And the mailboxes are my very favourite of all! 🙂

  1. Hmmm, seems as if I should pick some so…I like the mailboxes and the blue doors. 🙂 Ice cream doesn’t sound too good to me today, as we’re experiencing frigid, below zero (F) temperatures here in the Chicago area. But those look like Magnums, which are SO delicious!! Congratulations on the blogging achievement, too.

  2. Didn’t know about your new blog! Inviting, and you can’t go wrong with the areas you live and go to (especially for the ones who are in the polar vortex now – unheard temps and wind chill!). Piran looks lovely, even though you probably are a long time in the bus to get there (am trying not to ask question – haha). A great record, the opposite here with blogging in January!

    1. Thank you, Junieper, and welcome to my new coral blog! Oh, I’m not in Piran right now, these photos are from the summer. I suppose it’s quite chilly and windy there right now. Winters are not fun there. As for here in the south of Tuscany, we are above freezing except in the morning amore must scratch the windshield for some pesky ice. 🙂 Ah, such hard conditions. 😉
