Default italy here i come

Hi everyone, new here, bin lookin for peoples views from past and future threads on whether they regret movin to Italy (or anywhere really)
Bin to north italy (Bologna,Modena,Imola,Rimini,Venice,San marino) on 11 holidays. Drove down twice, that was an experience, they are totally mental drivers so fitted right in. Just got back from near Bologna best time ever.and have decided to look for property around that area that needs a little work.
By this time next year Rodney will be italianaires.

Ciao, davehornet6, welcome to BE. My DH has told me stories about driving down through Italy (to Greece) and it sounds like he wasn't exaggerating!
We've got a rowdy Italian crowd here http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=77 if you want to browse for Italy help.

Best wishes for your move!

heheh.. it's funny, I did think of you when I was writing that and I realized I took a little dramatic license.... Not exactly 'rowdy', it's true....

Don't sue me for false advertising!
