It is amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in a little over a year in an apartment that came furnished. When we moved from
to Anzio a little over a year ago we fit everything we had in two trips with our little Ford Fiesta. We spent part of three days last week moving what we have accumulated from our old apartment to our new one on the other side of the centro storico. Since both apartments are on the 2nd floor (3rd floor for Americans) this involved a lot of trips down and up stairs on my part and believe me there were more than two trips involved with our Ford Fiesta.

More than once in this moving process we asked ourselves where all this stuff came from. Valerie likes to call me a pack-rat, which I admit, but since our move to
we haven’t had that much time or space for me to pack-rat. We have, however, bought some items to make our apartment more comfortable and people have brought or mailed us things and little by little we have more; probably more than we need. Italy
The view of Ascoli Piceno from our new apartment
As I described before, we moved for sunlight, space and a little quite. It has been nice the past few days to have sunlight streaming into our living room. We are still working on where to put things and having to get our landlord to finish a few minor items before we can truly settle into our new home.
Also Il Carnivale started last week during our move and we have been busy enjoying the festivities…more on that later.
