This morning lots of our belongings and as much furniture as we could find for our new home leaves UK for Italy and this Saturday we'll be joining it as we fly out to our new Puglian life.
We're excited about eating al fresco late into the evening, strolling along the seafront with creamy gelato and feeling a bit like we're on holiday most of the time. (In fact it will be an extended holiday as we'll spend half the year in Italy and half in UK, where our family, friends and work will be based.)
Of course it won't all be easy and stress-free but we hope we're emotionally prepared for the frustrations (it's bad enough in UK - how on earth are we going to navigate the process of setting up our internet in Italian?!) and that we will embrace all new experiences for the adventure it is!
So it's the final countdown and fitting in lots of "lasts" (last takeaway curry, last meal in our favourite fancy restaurant, last haircut where they understand what I ask for - all the important things!) as this time next week we'll be unpacking boxes under beautiful, double height, tufo, vaulted ceilings.
