Salve tutti da Nottingham
Hello my name is Conrad and I live in Nottingham, England. Way back in 1982 I was fortunate enough to be posted out to Sardinia with the RAF with my wife and two bambini. We were very young ourselves and spoke no italian. We lived in Quartu St Ellena near Cagliari for 3 years. Although a culture shock at first we soon realised that there was a strong sense of communityand the good people of that town took good care of us. Even when we ventured off around the lovely island we were always looked after. We returned to mainland Italy back in 98 during part of a cruise, managing brief visits to Rome, Pisa & Genoa. Now many years later as we reach 50 we have come to realise that we were never happier than when we were in Italy. We are seriously thinking about retiring out there. I have started learning the language again building on what I picked up years earlier and we have planned visits to Venice in September and Rome next June. Thanks to the low cost airlines we want to visit somewhere in Italy every 3-4 months. Our objective will be three fold. For me to practice my communication - to appreciate the culture and to decide where we would like to live out our days.Arrivederci !
