I am a dual citizen of Italy and the US, getting my Italian citizenship via sure sanguinis in 2011. I successfully used that Golden Ticket known as an EU passport to fulfill my dream of being an expat, first in Dublin, Ireland for five and a half years and currently in Paris, France.

There have been lots of ups and downs and it’s been far from perfect but moving to Europe is the best thing I’ve ever done. Even six years in, everyday is an adventure.

A few tidbits about me personally:

– I am a geek.  My favorites TV shows of all-time are Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Battlestar Galactica. I’ve read all the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games and Percy Jackson novels.  My knowledge regarding the ORIGINAL Star Wars movies rivals that of the characters on The Big Bang Theory.

– I hate driving but I can handle a stick shift if you need me to.

– My favorite city in the world is Paris.

– I love, love, love wine, chocolate and coffee. And I think all three taste better in Europe.

  1. What a great blog name!! I recently started a blog about my move from the UK to Dublin, it seems we have the same train of thought. I hope you are settling in and I will be reading with interest as I prepare for my moving day (1st March 2013). Good luck with everything!

    • Thank you! Great minds think alike, huh? Drop me a line when you make the move. I’ll have actually been here a few months by then and maybe I can “show you the ropes.”


  2. Hi!
    My name is Natalie Sullivan and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in Ireland and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 646.862.2188 or skype me at natalieesullivan. You can also email me at nataliesullivan@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
