If there's a book about Italy, you can bet I've probably read it. I'm the weirdest person ever- I live in Italy and I still love reading about people living in Italy. You'd think I would have stopped my travel lit. obsession once having moved here seeing as there's no need to 'armchair travel' anymore, I just step out my door and I'm immersed in it. What's changed is that I now read other expat stories and nod furiously along with their observations, it takes me back to many of my Italy "firsts"- the first time you see Rome, your first sip of Chianti in Tuscany...anyways, I'm digressing. What I really wanted to say in this post is that one of the books I'm reading is one of the Moon "expat" guides called Living Abroad in Italy. I'm on just the second page, but I already found this quote that I love and wanted to share; it's really the beauty of Italy in a nutshell: the fact that you can do it all in a year, from world-class skiing in the Alps to beaching in Sardinia to shopping in Milan to drinking, well, everywhere.
