She moved to a house that she had only spent a week in the year before. She knew no one and yet she had surety in her resolve. She wanted to feel fully present in feeling unsafe and comfortable with the not knowing.And so the journey began, a new language, a new life laced with humour and laughter under the warm southern Italian sun.Come and join her…
