Chronicling Italian adventures
(pizza, wine, old towns) since 2013
Two New Zealanders living and eating in Northern Italy.
We don't have a selfie stick. Or a tripod. Nor have I ever used the timer on my camera. So the photos on this blog - and I do like to share them - are often of buildings. Often close ups. Or of Matt. When I can catch him unawares. But sometimes we take self portraits.
This blog does what it says in the title: I write about our Italian life, when I find it interesting; our travels, which I often find more so; and sometimes other things, too, like when I worry about what taking a couple of years out of a 'career' will do to my future earning potential.
We are both New Zealanders, living in Northern Italy. So far north we don't live in the actual boot, but somewhere in the upper thigh. Our town (city, really) is called Rovereto, it's small and cute and we like it. We're here for three years, and then...? To Amsterdam, coming May 2016.
Italy has been our home since April 2013 and we have made the most of our time here by language learning (attempts), sight seeing and, more recently, hiking in the hills/mountains surrounding our valley. We also cycle, slowly, we've discovered a taste for Italian foods and wines, and we like to explore our surroundings. This blog is our (mostly my) account of what we have been getting up to.
