The Doors


Doors and doorways fascinate me, especially when I travel. They can be practical or extravagant, solid or ethereal. Here are a few I saw recently in Basel, Switzerland.

The trip to Basel itself was unfortunately much shorter than what I would have liked. The city is not very large and there is so much to see.  We covered a lot on foot, although any hotel guest can take the buses and trams free of charge thanks to Basel “Mobility Card” one receives at check-in.

The most welcome doorway we saw on our trip was the plane’s on the way home, only because there’d been a general airline strike threatened at the beginning of the week after we’d already landed abroad. Actually we had secretly hoped we’d have an extended vacation, but not in over-priced Switzerland!
