thought I'd join in as well seiing as we're being all cosy and friendly.
I live close to lake garda and work in verona, i've been over here for 8 years but occasionally go through low periods when I want to go home.
If anyone fancys dropping in for a cheese and pickle sarnie or going for a coffee then my fridge is always open and reasonably well stocked. Can't beat the north of Italy for the variety of places to visit and things to do and its a bit more organised than the south (only a bit mind..)

Hi Kathy

It must be so lovely living so close to the lakes. I moved to Schio End of Sept to get some teaching experience out here and the lakes are on as my first thing i'd like to visit!

I have moved out here by myself and don't speak a word of Italian so it's good to hear that there are English people out there and near by. I'm already craving a normal unstilted English conversation and can't wait to go back home for christmas to recharge the batteries. Can get a bit lonely here at times.

If you fancy a chat sometime or to meet up lat me know, or if you have seen marmite or fruit squash anywhere also let me know. That's another one of my cravings!!!

We will be getting a big crowd to come over to you by the sound of it, Kathy! You should take out shares in the British shop you found in Verona

Donna, we haven't been to the lakes yet either so when we do we will let you know and we'll make a day of it.

Is there any English native speakers near here that fancy a coffee, drink or chat? Or anyone that can teach me some survical Italian?! :0)

Hi Donna,

I'm a Brit living in Vicenza. If you fancy a coffee sometime, drop me a line.

If you're coming over this way meeting up would be great. I'm near Vicenza in a town called Schio but let me know where you're likely to be and i'll see if I can get there.

Thanks for replying. Good to know there are people out there willing to help!

How did you get to Scio? It is a bit off the beaten track. I am in Trento which is not so far away. We usually live in Canada and are here on a sabbatical leave until Aug 2007. I do not have a car but let me know if you fancy a day out.

Hello. I'm in Vicenza. I get a bit down sometimes living in Italy that I need to go back to London and stock up on Sainbury's red label teabags and economy baked beans. Also, does anyone know where I can get some Honey Nut branflakes?? I can only fit so much into my handbaggage!

I would love to meet up with some ex-pats - maybe in a bar when an English will be beating an Italian team in the Champions League in the coming weeks? Hey! even Celtic will do!

Buonagiornata!

Hi Duffer,

Would be great to meet up - a couple of us on here do so from time to time (meeting tomorrow for lunch in fact!) so just yell if you want some English company. Like the idea of the football, although I am not sure that I am as optimistic as you of the outcome! The only reason we moved here was to live in a country that had won the World Cup in our lifetime!

My hubby goes to the UK trip on business and will brings over some essentials for us - never seen Honey Nut Branflakes here but most cereal here is sweet enough IMHO!! Have you tried NaturaSi in Vicenza? They have a good selection of cereals, albeit a bit pricey. Otherwise try the British Shop in Verona (if you want details just yell).

A presto
Carrie
