While exploring the walls of the medieval city of San Gimignano, we discovered this fascinating door, a lovely surprise. While it appeared to give a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside, I suspect it may actually have been a portal to another world. It just had that feeling. 🙂
What do you think is on the other side?

Ireland has the best doors. Galway has many interesting historical sites, as well as a bustling city center, but I was more taken with this lovely line of doorways on R336 close to the harbor. I have never seen such a complementary rainbow of doors, and the unusual sight has made this one of my favorite pictures from the trip.

From Dublin, Ireland.
This face greeted us at the door of our hotel in Dublin, Stauntons on the Green. It’s located in a Georgian townhouse with gardens in the back. I felt like I was staying in a novel!

I loved the architecture in Dublin! A lot of it is Georgian in style, and often colorful as well. I loved the juxtaposition of these two doorways, harmonizing together with their similarities and slight contrast.

From Hacienda La Ciénega, near Cotopaxi, Ecuador.
After hiking around on Cotopaxi, we ate lunch at this 18th century hacienda, where naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt once stayed.
