Acqua Alta Awesome


  1. Hi Stephanie, I moved to Naples in October with my husband and I wanted to tell you how much reading your blog helped me prepare for this journey. I didn't know how else to get in touch with you, hence commenting on a post. The whole process started for us back in May and I started googling everything I could about Naples and tried to find blogs of personal experiences. I don't even remember how exactly I came across yours but I really liked your writing style and the details you shared about the whole process of getting here and getting settled. I quoted you to my husband all the time as we were trying to figure out how all this works! I really felt more prepared for a lot of the inevitable bumps along the way b/c of what I'd read here. So I just wanted you to know that! You probably started this as a way to keep friends and family up on all the exciting things happening but I wanted you to know that your sharing totally helped a stranger feel a lot more prepared for this crazy Italian life! :-) Truly, thank you! -Tyler Anne Freeman

    1. Hi, Thank you so much for your kind words! And your note reminded me that I love this experience, even with all the "bumps" - I say that b/c I haven't had a decent hot shower at my house in over a month, and workmen are currently drilling through walls in our house. This IS a crazy life, but aren't we lucky to have the chance at it! I did start the blog as a way to stave off the dozens of "How do you like Italy?" emails, but found that instead, it became my lens on the world around me. Despite my lack of writing in the last few months, I still compose blog posts in my head for just about every experience. I'm so glad you found the blog helpful, and thank you for letting me know. - Stephanie
