Most of you reading this post probably already realize this, but just in case you’ve missed my obnoxious facebook posts about it – I’M MOVING TO DUBLIN!!!!
After 18 months spent getting my Italian Citizenship and another year working on getting a job, I am finally going to realize my dream of living in Europe. It’s pretty mind-blowing for me.
I’ve started this blog for a few reasons:
1. I’ve searched the web without success for a blog that truly describes the ins and outs of ex-pat life from an American’s perspective. I’m hoping to make this blog the one I was searching for and maybe giving some other ex-pats a few pointers along the way.
2. I thought this would be a fun and easy way for my friends and family to keep up on what’s going on with me.
3. Most of you know that I’m a writer, and while I’m learning how to live and work in Dublin, this blog will at the very least keep me writing.
So, that’s it in a nutshell. If you are at all interested, please consider “following” me. And feel free to pass this blog along to anyone else you think might find it interesting.
And BTW – some of you may have noticed that the picture in the header doesn’t really look like Dublin. Well, it isn’t. It’s Amsterdam. I’ve never been to Dublin so I don’t have any pictures of Dublin. Please excuse the slightly dishonest placeholder until I can snap some pictures of the real thing.
