Ciao a tutti :)
My name is Andy, I'm a 19 year old au pair living in Gorgonzola, Milan (20 minutes away from the center) and I was hoping to meet other au pairs doing the same as what I am doing!
I'm studying italian (quite basic but improving) and I am originally from England, so English is my mother tongue.
Also if you would like any tutoring in English, I am welcome to help, as I need some extra money to help afford my travelling.

Feel free to drop me a message if you live close and want to meet up! :)

I'm now about to start up my own online boutique selling modern crochet home-decor. I also blog about my life and business, as well as design at I'm in several groups on Facebook related to  expats in Italy and that helps with general questions as well as keeping a good vibe.

Hi everyone,

Basic intro:
I'm Ehi and I'll be moving briefly from Abuja to Torino for a short(-ish) professional course at the start of next year.

In other news:
I am a lawyer currently working in international development.
So, I'm also curious about accommodation types, transport services, and also the Latin dance scene around Turin.

Any useful tips would be appreciated.


Hi everyone, I'm returning to Lecce end of October 2016 after coming back to California (San Francisco Bay Area) for a few months. Thinking of Thanksgiving and the possibility of getting together with English speaking expats for the occasion? (Or other times for meet ups?)
Yes, have found very few English speakers in Lecce other than the quick pass-through tourist in the warmer months. I am a retired senior with young views of our world. Open minded. Will be staying in the Porta Napoli area this time.

Hi everyone, my name is Shania I am 18 and I just moved to Trieste with my parents about a week ago. I was born in England but was raised in America.
