About me

I am entranced by Italy. I love the language, the history, the food, the people, the beauty and the craziness. I was lucky enough to stay with my great uncle who lived in the Vatican, for 6 months when I was 20. He showed me some of the secret sights and inspired me to learn more. Many years later I went to university and ended up with a bachelors degree in Roman History & Archaeology. I’ve learnt to read Latin, and I’m almost fluent in Italian. I love that when I walk down the streets of Rome I can follow in the footsteps of Livia or Cicero.

I want to live there. Maybe not forever, but for a while, at least. My blog is where I explore the possibilities of living there for extended periods, or possibly living there permanently. It’s where I document some of the things I want to do there. I’m documenting that dream. 

I currently live in Sydney, Australia with my gorgeous english husband, son and little dog.   add another page.
