OK so it’s been a lifetime since I last posted, which is unforgivable in the blogosphere. But a lot has changed,.. I went from being an expat in Italy to an expat in the UK with a new job and a lot of interesting developments. So now here I am writing this from a top a ‘palace’ in a seaside town in Essex. While it’s quaint and nice and much more convenient than my beloved, bureaucracy-laden Italy, I still luckily find my way back there from time to time.
