I'm English but have been based in Italy for some years. I am a full-time translator and part-time Honorary British Consul for north-east Italy. No, that doesn't mean I wear a funny hat! I love sport, music, photography and reading and black British humour. Offering part of my home to guests is a new challenge but an enjoyable one as I've met some interesting new people from around the world - and thus made some interesting and valued new friends.
