The Doors of Bolsena – Part #1 (and a new word for your Doorcabulary)
Warning: I’m sooo not finished with doors from our time in Italy this past fall 😀
After we left Amalfi, we took the train north to Orvieto to meet up and spend a few days with the unofficial Queen of Italian Doors – Manja over at Manja Mexi Moving – (psst, if you’re not already following her new blog, you probably should be).
After meeting us at the train station and showing us around the lovely old hilltop town of Orvieto,
we then headed about 1/2 hour east to the lovely lakeside resort village and commune of Bolsena.
From the moment we got there I found so many gorgeous doors that at one point I was afraid of giving myself whiplash from snapping my head in various directions to admire yet another beauty.
If some of these look at all familiar I’ll apologize in advance, it’s just that Manja may well have already photographed and posted some of them herself on her blog as well.
Being that this was only our first afternoon with her, and knowing that we were on the way to but had not yet even arrived at her place in Tuscany, I was quickly coming to the conclusion that these next few days were going to be quite special for door discoveries.
Not that I had any doubts beforehand of course, it’s just that being there live and in-person and soaking it all in, it really hit me: I was truly in door heaven!
In fact at some point during the trip I invented a new word that we all adopted, to describe that overwhelming feeling of joy stemming from too much door pleasure.
Phew, it’s a good thing I quit smoking years ago ’cause right about now I could go for a cigarette 😉
With so much historic architecture and so many unique doors found in all the little towns and villages in this part of Italy you really can’t go wrong. Oh yeah, the food and the vino are pretty good too.
As always, thank you so much for looking 🙂
