Hello everyone,

I'm an Englishman currently living in Italy and about to live in France. I'm a language teacher, I teach business English to foreign businessman and I am about to start a degree in Leadership and Management. 

It is a pleasure to finally join the AoM blog, I've been a reader for about six months now. It is the only blog I check on a daily basis for new posts. I've taken a lot on board and have defined my core values, started a bucket list and journal as well as various other smaller suggestions on the site. I have to say they are not only helping massively to define me as a person but they are also a great deal of fun. I've moved from being a little listless to being almost too busy.

I look forward to engrossing myself in this fantastic community! 

All the best,

Liam

It's a pleasure to have you join us!

Welcome, Liam.  I hope we get to have some exchanges here.  :) 

You live in Italy and you spend your time online here? What on earth for??!! 

Get on out and start living; Italy? France next? Wow!!!

Me jealous.

Haha it does rain quite often at this time of year which gives me some online time! However this weekend I will be walking in the Alps and in a couple of weeks I will be in Venice so I am finding a balance. When I go to France I'll be living in Bordeaux. The wine capital of France.

Fantastic!

Enjoy, and do drop a postcard here from time to time.

Welcome to AoM, Liam. 

Living in Italy must be like a dream come true! Welcome Liam!

It is great! Although my dream will be in a few months when I move to France. I'd encourage anyway to live somewhere different from where they were born. It is really stressful but very rewarding and teaches you a lot about your hometown/country. Thanks for the welcome.

I am looking forward to, at least, spending a few months abroad, specifically in Europe. I'm also into traveling...in fact, I am planning to visit France, Paris and the countryside, and Greece. I personally, like to get info about the culture and history of the country in advance. I definitely agree with you on how much one learns by seeing other countries; within the US, Ive lived in the southeast and the midwest, which is very contrasting although it is the same country. Enjoy your time in Italy and .good luck in France!!!
