Expat Interview

Cherrye Moore of My Bella Vita recently pufffed up my ego by asking to interview me (who? little old me?!) for an expat-oriented site she writes for called Affordable Calling Cards. I agreed to do it because I can remember the days when I was living in the States and dreaming of running off around the world having adventures...but didn't know how to go about it in a way that would work for me.

I'm not one of those people who can just pick up and go "travelling" for a year. I'm not quite that adventurous! And I have always liked the idea of living and working for a longer period of time in a new place, so as to get to really know the people, the customs, etc. Sightseeing has never been my thing, I want to know what real life is like when I go somewhere new. Teaching English as a Foreign Language turned out to be my path to life abroad, and my passion.

So, if hearing about my experience can help someone else make the leap...great!

Loved reading your 'story'..and what a wonderful one it is! I apprecaited all the cultural differences you point out, and admire your ability to have become Molfettana. I have no idea if I will be here for as long you have, but you certainly are a wonderful role model:) thanks for sharing!

Just found your blog and have enjoyed reading it. You've summed up the experience of living here quite nicely. I've only been here three years, am teaching Business English and have a 10-year-old son. Some days are easier than others, but it's mostly good!
