Rosemary (Bivetto) Connelly - Two Years In Italy
This is the story of how two fifty-somethings retired, sold our home, put our things in storage, got a visa, and went to live in Italy.
We're not rich. We did it on a firefighter's pension. We lived cheaply and simply. We didn't buy and restore an old villa in the hills of Tuscany. We rented small furnished apartments in four different regions.
We weren't fluent in Italian but we studied hard and were able to communicate and make friends. We weren't just lucky. We worked hard to make it happen. We had a dream and we pursued it.
This is the journal of our two years in Italy, filled with excitement, joy, some frustrations, and a little heartache.
