No. 342: Arrivederci Tuscana
So long charming beauty,
cobbled streets, steep, stone stairways and solitary cypress.
À bientôt windswept hill towns,
vast valleys, medieval ramparts,
and burnt Siena edges.
Ciao for now silvered olive trees,
Romanesque chapels, streaming sunlight and painted sunsets.
Arrivederci aromatic Brunello and salacious Chianti,
already missing the rustic Italian good life and countryside pace…

Nancy, you can’t go home – unless you start 365 things I love about Colorado 🙂
Oh, you are sweet! I am really going to miss my readers. I’m thinking about starting “36.5 hings I about Colorado” to keep me positive. I don’t think I can find 365 things (so 36.5 may be my compromise along with another blog. Stay tuned….and, thanks for being such a loyal reader. x
365 photos from Colorado perhaps?
I think you should definitely stay blogging you write so well and take lovely photos. It would be interesting to read about your impressions of going back home after so long away – I’m sure you’ll find inspiration for more blog posts in future. Also keep this site open the photos are magnificent! Kind regards Rosemary 🙂
Thank you for that. I needed to hear that this morning. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with the reality of returning “home” and all that needs to be done in the next 20 days to make that happen…and I was also feeling sorry for myself about letting go of this blog and the joy I get from writing it and interacting with my cyber friends. Merci bien.
You’re very welcome and am glad you’re feeling a bit better. Moving is overwhelming at the best of times – I am helping my daughter organise her move across to London at the beginning of September and having done it myself a few times there’s so much to think of! I’m also on a countdown too, to the day she flies out of Perth – it won’t be too easy and will be rather emotional but I am already planning trips though not until next year she needs time to settle in to her new life! Hopefully you can find a way to keep blogging and best wishes with everything! 🙂
I too will be empty nesting come fall…on top of leaving my beloved France. I better find a good shrink! 🙂 Good luck to you and your daughter.
And many thanks for “liking” my about page too it’s great to get positive feedback and connect to other blogs and bloggers!
Je suis d’accord. Thanks for your comments. 🙂
Thanks 🙂 It’s partly why I finally decided to set up a blog rather than just talking about it as I thought the writing and sharing travel experiences would be a good outlet as an “empty nester”! Good luck to you too 🙂
