I'm 34, from the US, have been living in Vasto (google it ) for 8 yrs now. Married to, yep, you guessed it, an italian... we have a 2 yr old daughter with the sweetest smile on earth
We have a decent group of expats here in my town so i'm not short of friends, but i am short of time... never get a chance to get together!
Nonetheless, i miss my home country a lot on certain days of the year and whenever I try to go out shopping for anything (especially shoes, baby items, DIY stuff, and groceries... and... well, just about everything!)
I am currently a SAHM but i do the occasional translation and get occasional part-time work editing websites and stuff. I taught English the first 5 yrs I was here but haven't been doing that as of late.
My husband owns a lovely palace in the hills but I personally don't get up there very often. Do call or stop by if you're ever over this way! www.palazzotd.com
We also have some properties for sale (a vineyard and a huge palace that is in total ruins) if any of you know of anyone crazy enough to take on huge projects like that - you know, like that crazy british guy who started a wine-making business in France and has a TV show... can't remember his name!
I look forward to exchanging with all of you!
