My life and times in the eternal city and beyond

Hello world!

Out front of my new home!

So this is it… the BIG dream of living in ROME, ITALY & I’m living it… right now!

I left Melbourne just on 11 weeks ago.. how time flies! 

I spent the European summer in Abruzzo, Rome, Como, Milan, London, Split, Brac, Lipari, Sardegna and Lipari again! I know.. sounds exhausting hey!  But it has been one of the best summers of my life… Actually, not all that dissimilar to other summers I’ve spent in Europe.  This continent was made for summer!!  There is just nothing like it!

2 weeks ago, I moved into my apartment in Trastevere, Rome.  Trastevere is on the west bank of the Tiber River (il Tevere) – the river which cuts through Rome city.  In fact Trastevere – in it’s latin form – literally means beyond the river.  It’s one of the oldest quartiere of Rome, retaining it’s charm and character through cobblestone streets and terracotta wash buildings.  It’s full of restaurants and bars.  It’s full of life.  And it’s MY neighbourhood for the next 3 months.

This is my story.  My dream – and I’m happy to share it with you!

Maria (di Trastevere!)
