It’s remarkable how much someone’s life can change in two years. Two years ago I moved to Italy and wasn’t sure what would happen. I’m back in Toronto for the summer and it has become increasingly clear just how much I’ve changed and grown in the past couple years. People often ask me if I miss Toronto. To most Italians I’m off my rocker for wanting to leave the big city life to live in a small southern Italian city. I can honestly say that I don’t miss Toronto life. Sure, there are times when I miss the convenience of 24 hour shopping or the ability to eat many different ethnic dishes but at the end of the day I am happy with my simple Italian life.
Living in Italy has done so much for me. I will always miss my family and friends in Toronto but since moving to Italy I can honestly say that I’m happier and content with the decision I made. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I moved and never predicted how long I’d be in Italy. For now, I’m enjoying my new life and trying not to have any expectations because life is always unpredictable regardless of where you are in the world.
Looking forward to another year in Italy with new adventures and incredible memories.
