While I feel compelled to start this blog, this adventure into who knows what or where, I can’t decide whether or not I want to really get personal and make it a diary.

Let’s go though. I know I want to flash back. So much has happened in the 11 years I’ve been living here in Italy. There is too much to tell for me not to go back and relive a little moment with you every so often.

Life here in rural Italy is funny, crazy, tough and sometimes sad. Every day is different and when I open my eyes in the morning and look at my old ceiling beams, along with that reassuring, “this is my place in the world and I love it” feeling, I also ask myself “what will happen today?”

Join me on this journey. I will share a very real view on life in rural Italy living amongst Italians, as well as my travels, experiences and tips of all kinds. You may be somewhat surprised!
