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 and have been living in Dublin, Ireland for about five years.
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 five 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.
