life as an expat, life in the UK, living abroad


On the occasion of her thirtieth birthday, my favourite crime fiction author, Stefania Mattana, has asked me to write a guest post about my impressions as an Italian expat in the UK. She’s hosting various authors on her blog at the moment, doing a series of interviews and articles on different topics.

As many of you know, I am Italian but I have lived in the UK for twenty years. So I came up with my list of twenty observations from twenty years in the UK. To be honest, it didn’t take me twenty years to notice all of these, some of them only took twenty days, some twenty weeks, some a bit longer. They’re meant to serve as a comparison with life in Italy. If you’re curious to see what they are, pop over to Stefania’s blog now.
