Genealogy in Italy

Dec 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Property of the Month

The delay in our relocation has at least given us some ‘free time’ for further research on ‘all things italy’! Not least of which is our Italian ‘blood lines’. Obviously, with June being part Italian, some history was already established. Strangely though, it’s come to light that there is Italian blood in my Family Tree […]

Some confusion exists over the “how to’s, where to’s and why’s” of relocation. Having been looking into this matter for the past few months, here’s what we’ve found.

Whoever said ‘It is better to travel than to arrive’ clearly never had to worry about travel insurance. Until recently, many people would only venture abroad once a year. It is now easier and cheaper to pursue our wanderlust and travel further and more frequently than ever before. Heading to sun-kissed beaches or snow-capped peaks […]

Sardinia – Between Africa and Europe

Dec 25th, 2008 | By | Category: Property of the Month

It was 10.15pm on a hot summer evening in Sardinia. I had arrived on the island five days previously and had just finished my second lesson teaching English to a small group of adults in a private language school.
