Thursday Doors: Puerto Rico

Sadly so, I’ve been away from the blog world for a bit of time for a number of reasons. I’m glad to be back. To kick off my return to Thursday Doors, I am sharing the colorful and amazing doors my daughter, Sarah, captured on her recent trip to Puerto Rico. We’re a mother-daughter door…

Thursday Doors: More Doors in Madrid

These doors are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a weekly door-lover’s group hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities.  ~~ This week’s post is a continuation of last week’s post featuring doors from Madrid, Spain.  First is a view from our hostel, Hostel Lidol, before my husband and I strolled around the city. Next, here…

Thursday Doors: Madrid, Spain

These doors are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a weekly door-lover’s group hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities.  ~~ The wheels have set down on two long flights, our bags are now resting in an Airbnb until we find a flat to rent, and we heave a sigh of relief that two weeks have…

Thursday Doors: More Lunar New Year Discoveries

This post is my contribution to Thursday Doors, a weekly door-lover’s group hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities. ~~ As this is the last week of Lunar New Year, I thought I’d do another post featuring decorated doors here in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong. For New Year, most every residential and commercial building’s lobby…

Thursday Doors: Final Photos from Alicante, Spain

This door post is my contribution to Thursday Doors, a weekly door-lover’s group hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities.  To see more doors from all around the globe, visit Dan. ~~ The following is a photo I neglected to include in the previous door posts from Alicante, Spain. I couldn’t leave it out! And,…

Thursday Doors: Plaza del Ayuntamiento

The Plaza del Ayuntamiento is considered downtown Alicante.  On our regular walks, during our two week stay in September, we passed through the plaza on our way to our accommodations from Postiguet Beach.  We entered through this archway with the clock tower watching over the plaza. The Alicante City Hall is located in the Plaza…

Thursday Doors: Casco Antiguo-Santa Cruz

I hope you all had a joyful holiday time and a happy new year!  This is my first door post of 2022, and it’s my contribution to Thursday Doors, a weekly door-lover’s group hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities. The doors I’m featuring in this post are from Alicante, Spain, a port city…

Thursday Doors: St. Nicolas Cathedral in Alicante

My contribution to Thursday Doors this week is a second installment of doors I found in Alicante (a city on the east coast of Spain) from a trip my husband and I took in September. This week, I’m featuring the square where you’ll find the Concatedral San Nicolás. This cathedral, in honor of Saint Nicholas,…

Thursday Doors: Alicante, Spain

After my trip back to the US (visit here if you’d like to see) in August to visit family and friends, my husband and I strategically packed up our apartment in France, shoving all our belongs into one large suitcase each plus a carry-on.  As our Schengen Zone visa was preparing to expire in a few weeks,…

Thursday Doors: Family Home

If I summed up travel during this time, I would say, “Be prepared to hurry up in order to wait.”  Delay is the key word.   In July, after my trial trip to Carcassonne (see post from last week) to reacquaint myself with the world outside my apartment, I boarded a bus in Perpignan, France…

Thursday Doors: Bastide Saint-Louis, Carcassonne, France

The week before last, my contribution to “Thursday Doors” was from a trip my husband and I took in June to Carcassonne, southern France (visit here). The photos I featured were of the ancient fortified city that sits perched on a hill overlooking the lower city or the ville basse on the left bank of…

Thursday Doors: Carcassonne, France

For the last several months, I’ve sadly missed out participating in the weekly Thursday Doors challenge hosted by Dan Antion over at No Facilities blog. Searching for that door that brightens my day or ignites my imagination is like finding treasure when I travel or explore the place where I currently am living. But, like…
