The last post...

We have made the decision to bring to a close our personal blog: Tales from Toriello. We started it ten years ago when we first bought La Pasera as a way of documenting our lives in the UK and Spain. We have posted over 500 blog posts in that time and built up an average monthly following of 5000 views from all over the world. We have always been truly amazed that people from all corners of the globe have taken the time to read our stories, look at our photographs, comment on our posts and occasionally have visited us when they have been in Asturias. It's been a great pleasure getting to know some lovely people and hearing about their stories and adventures. Tales from Toriello will remain as an archive as there are some useful posts and recipes that we hope will continue to be used. Take a look through the archive which can be accessed using the timeline in the right hand column.

We will continue with our other blogs for the time being and hope you will continue to keep in touch with us through them or by email.

Somewhere in Asturias - A photo blog featuring photographs from Luis and Ian of Asturias

www.artesanialapasera.com - Luis' blog that details his work restoring cane and rush seating.

www.mosaicoslapasera.com - Luis' blog for his mosaic art.

Small Tales and Tittle Tattle - a site where Ian shares his short stories and music.

Smaller Tales from Toriello - a site where we store photographs and short films of wildlife found in the garden at La Pasera.

Ian Hicken - Music - a blog about music and Ian's bands, equipment and influences.

https://soundcloud.com/ianhickenmusic - a link to Ian's music on soundcloud.

We both have plans for developing our interests over the coming months and years and sincerely hope that our paths will cross again sometime in the future. Don't forget to look us up if you are ever passing this way....

With love and best wishes

Ian Hicken
