I came to Italy for the first time, when I was 18. I fell in love with Rome and visited it over the years. When I was 28 I gave up everything (job, rental, boyfriend) and came to Rome to study at LA SApienza before starting a Phd back home. In the meantime I met Giuliano and we became good friends! When I got back home I realised I was pregnant (ooppss!). Now I am living in Rome permanently with 3 kids...I guess I got carried away (never finished the phd!). I have to say I often fantasize about moving back to the UK, but it is a bit of a nightmare at the moment...with the financial crisis and the swine flu!!
