Doors Around The World

By |January 27th, 2014|India, Ireland, Italy, Travel Tales|6 Comments

Doors. They’re everywhere. They’re functioning, useful and there’s definitely more doors than people in every single place you visit. That doesn’t mean that they have to be drab and utilitarian though!

I love nothing more than a bright colour pop door, a rustic wooden door with the paint peeling and the wood crumbling slightly and don’t even get me started on big heavy door knockers. Love them!

I’ve discovered some truly beautiful doors around the world on my travels so lets take a look at some of my favourites…

My 2013 Travel Adventures

I began the year watching fireworks light up the sky over Edinburgh Castle surrounded by other lovely travel bloggers. We were at the beginning of a whirlwind trip around Scotland seeing all that my beloved country has to offer. Everyone adored their time in Scotland and I was like a proud mother hen showing off the best parts of my country to everyone. Shockingly for Scotland the weather even behaved and we had warm temperatures, no snow and very little rain. Thanks, Mother Nature!

Whilst I was in Dublin I attended popular travel blogging conference TBEX, and then extended my time in the city to go sightseeing and soak up the atmosphere. It’s a city that has so much going on (I mean where else can you listen to live music and see Irish dancers in a pub on a casual Monday night?!) and it has so much history running through it. Here’s a small snapshot of my time in Dublin…  […]
