Every Once and a While a little bit of Nostalgia


When my Italian friends hear that  I am from Miami, they always ask – well what are you doing here? As if to them it were a no brain-er – Florida equals sun and fun equals beach and relax.  But we all know that when you “live” somewhere – and that somewhere is also where you work – then you have a tendency to skip over all the fun, sun, beaches and relax.  I love Florida with its unique environment between the ocean, the gulf, the swamp, hammocks  and everglades.  I do miss getting up in the morning and not having to reach for a bathrobe because you will freeze your bum off with the first step out of bed and I miss eating all that good fresh fish.   I happened to catch a glace of this video and it just brought it all back.

It’s the same thing with all the Italians that live here in Florence Italy – they have these wonderful landscapes, beautiful artwork, great food and even better wine.  So when I tell some one that I live and work  in Florence, Tuscany and they say lucky you,  (as an expat transplanted here) I just agree with them.  I feel very lucky to be living here. In fact every time I go over the Arno river and get a quick glimpse of the Palazzo Signoria and Ponte Vecchio,  I am reminded of how good it feels to be living here.
