Why I can NOT move to Italy……….

Of Course I love Italy, visiting any small town, village or city via train routes.

Returning Home to Italy 2 or 3 times a year confirms with each visit, that I must spend time in Italy. 


So why can’t I just pack up and move home?   I did this for my first 3 month ‘sabbatical’ in 2008 to test if I could live in a city where I had no contacts, not speaking more than  basic Italian (equivalent to a 3 yr old) and no plan to be a tourist, just to live in Sorrento and try to be Italian.









Because I would never leave……………….
How can one country have so many interesting, unique and even sometimes strange places to explore?  Festivals to attend.  Century old traditions to learn about.

Living in Italy I might NEVER travel to any other country.       And there is so much to see in the world.  

The best part of each morning!

So for the next year I shall try to see beyond Europe.  I will return to Asia.  This time it will not be a business trip.   It shall be a trip to try to see some local life:  meeting a geisha in Japan, taking a mini walk about in Australia, learning to make noodles in China and learning where saris are made in India.  

A common view as you walk a cobbled street

After traveling the world will I finally move to Italy?    Who knows but I will always go Home to Italy.
