Leaving a place


We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.

― Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon


This is how I feel about Italia.

    Ciao Jenny, I’m sorry to hear that your experience of Italian life wasn’t all that you wished for. Life in a small village must have it’s set of challenges apart from dealing with earthquakes! I’m glad to hear that you are happily settled in the UK now.
