Im a four year old international jet-setting golden retriever. I was born in Australia and then moved to Singapore, South Korea, China and the Netherlands before recently settling in Milan. No matter where I am, I love to blog about my zany experiences. Oh, one more thing, when it comes to food, I am immoral. I will do anything for food!!
A resident American, who has been living and working in Italy for a decade, is a seasoned foreigner in this country. She writes about her experiences in this beloved yet often awkward country. Some current featured themes include local culture and events, mountaineering activities, language lessons and historical tidbits.
My wife and I have moved to Italy in mid-September, 2007. Prior to this move and after, I had identified, collected, assembled for our relocation to Italy many, many links about things one should be aware of before moving to or living in Italy. I believe that these links will benefit other like-minded individuals who are considering or dreaming to move to Italy. This effort is on-going and I hope will benefit with the interaction with interested individuals. I will continue to make entries to this blog
A lighthearted look at the every day trials and tribulations of living in Italy
Half Calabrese, half Pugliese and 100% Australian...you do the maths - but that's me, an Australian-Italian who moved to Italy in 2006 just because I wanted to! Oh, and I met a bel ragazzo along the way.
Transplanted from Louisiana to New York, to Florence, to New York...and hopefully back to Florence once more. Transplanted? I like to say reboiled, because like great ribollita, life just gets better every day, and tastes even better if it's a little spicy!
world sightseeing, living with intensity, our hobbies and more ... that is our model, in alfaku we will show you a different view of Italy, Mexico and any other country that gets in our way. Our style: photo, video and photosynth galleries.
Son of Thor (8) is about to be home educated after three years in Italian primary school. By his mum, a EFL teacher of twenty years, who has frequent attacks of the collywibbles when she wonders if she is up to the task. His father, the Italian Sock Dropper, was initially very much against the idea (not least cos he didn't think handcuffs would suit him), but changed his mind after yet another year of failure on the school's part to live up to his (culturally low) expectations.
First, I wrote about my daily humiliations in Osaka, Japan. Then I wrote about my daily humiliations in Dublin, Ireland. Now I'm writing about my daily humiliations in Latina, Italy. Coming with?
My blog talks about my adventures in Italy, my travels around the country into the less touristy and unknown areas, and my greatest passion - photgraphy. I think that photography and travel are linked together irrevocably, you can't have one without the other. I think all us expats have thousands upon thousands of photos of everything we have experienced and want to share with others.
My husband is Italian. We met working on cruise ships together. He still works onboard but I decided it was time to get back to reality and moved to Italy after we got married August 2008. For economical and logistical reasons (I don't speak Italian) I live with my mother in law. This blog is a funny personal glimpse of my life living with her and living in Italy. It is not meant to be a travelogue although I am more than willing to assist anyone with information or even meet up for a coffee if you are travelling to the Ligurian coast.
This blog is about a renovation and decoration project of an over 200 year old palazzo at the toe of the Italian boot, in Calabria.
We've left our home in Tucson, Arizona to live in Florence, Italy for 6-8months. My husband's bosses requested the move and who were we to complain? My bosses have been most flexible and understanding allowing me to reduce to 20 hours a week and work remotely, while a colleague picks up some work and the salary savings. Our toddler and I plan to explore the city while my husband works and in the evening I get to work!
