Vacation

We've just returned from a week in Québec City. We spent most of our time in the old city, or Vieux-Québec, which with its historic architecture, has an old world charm. As we walked everywhere, up hills and down, up stairs and down, I found myself taking pictures of many doorways/entrances, which I found incredibly beautiful. Wouldn't you love to enter your home through one of these each day? Somehow the style would not fit with my suburban bungalow though. Well, I can always dream....

  4. We stayed for a week, which was great! I think any less and I would have felt the same way.

  5. I love imagining the possibilities behind beautiful doorways. I read an interesting book of micro short stories a couple of years ago called "Doorbells of Florence" that was about just that sort of imaginings. It was a fun book to read and your doors remind me of it. Thanks!

  6. I love these doorways. I have a similar collect that I took in Italy and Scotland. Not sure why they fascinate me. Nice to find your blog.

  7. Kjersten, I agree that it is about imagining: what lies within, who comes and goes, all those possibilities are so fascinating.

    Welcome here, Better is Possible! Part of the fascination (for me) is also in finding the beautiful in the most every day of things.

  8. My visit to Quebec City 20 years ago was my first time in Europe! Ok, I know not really, but it sure feels like it. Also share your fascination w/ doors. Always come home w/lots of door photos.

  9. Yes, Cindy, it really does feel like a little Europe! Are there any cities in the US that have that same feel? It's certainly a more affordable vacation to stay in one's home country!
