Today will be another edition of doors-to-the-rescue: mother and father visited the beautiful Slovenian town Štanjel, I get father’s door photos and so do you. Win win win!
I don’t remember ever strolling around Štanjel, even though I had to pass it numerous times. It is situated in the Karst region in western Slovenia, among prosciutto, teran wine, Bora wind, uneven terrain with caves and other limestone formations, Lipizzaner horses (which originate in the nearby town of Lipica), wild asparagus and welcoming people. The most famous Slovenian restaurant Hiša Franko with chef Ana Roš (I recently saw the episode of Chef’s Table where she is featured but haven’t eaten there yet) is also in this general direction. Truly a myriad reasons to visit.
All the photos in the gallery were taken by my father about three weeks ago and I thank him kindly. The last three are not from Štanjel but from another trip more to the southwest of Slovenia, above the Adriatic sea, taken just one day earlier. My parents certainly go around! Good for them!
This last photo certainly seemed familiar. And since I never forget a door… (Not true, just a cute thing to say.)
I had a look and found this photo of the same spot that I took in 2014, the only time I was there. The door looks different and it is different, just the place is the same. I’ve checked the brick pattern to make sure. Proper door detective! The door lost its number and I cannot say that an improvement has been made design-wise…
