I finally got around to checking out the site after I was notified, I guess about a year ago now, that there is a new owner. I was quite involved at one time as a newebie in Italy and I must say that I am totally disappointed in what you have created.... nothing but a money maker (and probably not much of that if the forum participation is any indication).

Well kiddo.... you have taken the soul out of a very pertinent and lively site with a ton of information and connection to fellow expats. Money ain't everything and the people who move here are following a crazy dream, and trust me, filling your pocketbook with little or no benefit... ain't one of them.

In 2008 Stef Smulders, his partner Nico and their dog Saar emigrated to Italy to start a new life and set up a B&B. They sold their home, left their friends and family behind and took a leap into the unknown. Now Stef shares his experiences in a collection of witty short stories. The book treats the trials and tribulations of an emigration: what it was like to buy and renovate a house, to import a car, to gain residency, and much more. The reader is introduced to a full range of Italian characters, from the trustworthy to the rogue, from the gentle to the shameless, flesh and blood Italians. Some are stereotype, others unexpectedly original. Yet they never fail to amuse and entertain.
