The best part of the last ten years has been spent with my husband David living a dream life in Northern Lazio, Italy. Sadly his recent death has meant the end of this adventure. We were a close couple and I do not want to live full time alone in Italy. It is too early yet to say how much time I will spend in Italy every year but sadly I feel it will not be enough to warrant continuing with my blog 'News From Italy'
Thankyou for all the wonderful support I have had from all around the world.
I am dedicating 'News From Italy' to this wonderful man, who was a very special husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend to all who knew him.
David Stewart McFall July 27th 1950 - May 24th 2013
Welcome to News From Italy, my blog about our Italian Adventure. Although this blog has now ceased publication I will be continuing to blog and I am sincerely hoping that my many followers here will move with me to Travel Tales blog to follow my next adventures wherever they may take me. The links to my other blogs are:-
I look forward to keeping in touch with you via them, thanks once again for all the support you have given 'News From Italy' over the years.

Linda, as I was reading this I was thinking that it would be such a great idea to get your best posts together from this wonderful blog and compile them into a hardcover 'coffee table' book! I think they are pretty easy to do and they can be as detailed as you want. Just a thought...ReplyDelete
Thinking of you,
I'm so sorry to hear the news. Best wishes. Take care.ReplyDelete

Dear LindyLou: I am so sorry for your loss and I had to read that first paragraph twice to be sure I read it correctly.ReplyDelete
May the winds of change blow you in an exciting new direction. I pray that each sunrise greets you with the promise of a new day and each sunset allows you to reflect with joy the many wonderful years you had with a loving husband. Go with peace in your heart.
I loved your blog and thank you for giving me a glimpse into Italy, where I someday hope I will get to visit. xo
Dear Linda, I know that your Italy based blog has given you so much enjoyment and think it is a great gesture to dedicate it to David.

In the meantime I hope you take it easy xxReplyDelete

I have always read your blog with pleasure: you are such a kind person, and here I always found interesting contents, such as the photos of Marta and other little "paesi" in our region. Losing the man you lived with for so many years has been for sure one of the saddest experiences, and I just want to give you all my condolences. I will miss your new posts.
Good luck, wherever you'll go.
You have been one of the nicest bloggers I had the pleasure to read, I really enjoyed to read your posts about nice "paesini" in my, our, region. I am so sorry for your loss, will miss you and your blog.
