I’m an interior decorator/writer living a happy life in Calgary, Canada. I have three married daughters, two grandchildren, not to mention an extended family and friends who feel like family.
I adored my life, however, Italy called and I answered.
December 3rd 2009, 3:33 A.M. an inner-knowing helped me recognize it was time to go fulfill my lifelong dream of an extended stay in Italy…..I rented my house, packed my bags and waved a final goodbye, beginning a 10 month love affair with the Tuscan landscape, people, food and language. Seriously, who wouldn’t?
Four years after returning from my Italian odyssey, I set-out on a new adventure across Spain, The Camino. An 800 km walk from France to Santiago, Spain. Making life interesting, I zipped between, Hungary, England, Ireland, Spain, France, Italy and Sicily.
I call this blog Italian Living, whatever continent I’m on, Italy is never more than a heartbeat away. Italian culture taught me how to live life with an internal passion.
This is my evolving story.
