                                        Why Molise?

                                 A VERY GOOD PLACE TO START

These words are from a song from an old 1960s musical.

I have always been a romantic, a heart yearning for adventure. So when I Lived in Italy the first time I think I fell in love with the mountains, the clear blue skies, the flowers, the sea and the people.

Yes it was different then. I lived in Varese, near the Lake Maggiore. I had two small Children and lived an exciting life on the fringes of the expat community.

My children were fortunate to go to an International school which opened their eyes to the world and made them not just Europeans but CITIZENS of the WORLD. 

Studying languages from five years old they both learnt to speak four languages fluently, which has led them both to very successful careers in teaching and hospitality.

We skied every weekend in the winter, had amazing holidays, had enough money to lead relatively trouble life, and I thought we were happy.

I wanted to make it work but, I hated seeing people every day who had known us both, and I wanted to start again.

We packed our bags then moved back to England. 

As a nurse, it was easy to walk into another job.

Of course, it was straightforward, but I did get a chance to discover myself again, and we made it work.

Despite battling with all kinds of hassles along the way including a number of tumultuous relationships, I was able to study as well as having a fascinating and interesting career.

All these things and more.Image result for WHY

I am really not sure, but rather like a niggling pain that would not go away, I decided I wanted to return.

Having just got my second divorce under my belt and embarked on another relationship I decided I was going back.

Hours searching on the internet led me to an estate agency in Vasto, where we began our search.

Our little piece of Heaven, here in MOLISE. 
A small very dilapidated farmhouse it sits on the side of a mountain just outside the village of Lucito.

That was in February 2016, and now I am living here, lock, stock and barrel.
