Earlier this month I was contacted via email by an internet site devoted to the experiences expats around the world have had with adjusting to their new country. I was requested to complete an interview form on our experience with the decision to move, the process and our experience with the culture in Italy. You can view my interview as well as those of other people from countries all around the world at:

Just another way our experience can be helpful to others seeking the same adventure.
