Italy Love

June 11th, 2010

I’m happy to announce that I am officially TEFL Certified to teach English as a second language! I got through the course in Greece and I have my certificate and letter of recommendation in hand. I am so glad I got through the course! Now I am not even sure I will ever use the certification. At this point I am not sure I even want to teach English. But, I have the certification, and it will be valid for the rest of my life, so if I need to use it I’ll always have it as an option available to me.

Now what?

I’m in Italy at the moment, staying with my lovely friend Rossella and her husband Matteo and their gorgeous 2yo son Joshua. They live in San Felice which is near Modena and Bologna. It’s a small agricultural village in northern Italy and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I am absolutely falling in love with Italy.

I met Rossella back in 2001 when I was working at Merrill Lynch in Berkeley; she came for the summer as an intern of sorts, and worked closely with one of the brokers I assisted there. So we got to know each other and became good friends. She visited me once when I lived in NYC, and I came to her wedding in London. It’s so nice to be here in Italy visiting her!

Next week we will all take a tour of northern Italy – they are going to show me Italy and drive down towards Rome. I will meet my sisters in Rome and hang out with them there for a few days, then we (my sisters and I) will fly to Venice for a few days, and then I plan on taking the train from Venice back to San Felice to spend some more time with Rossella and her family.

I am really in love with the gorgeous quaintness of Italy. The air here is so fresh and clean, and the water is sweet and delicious. I really want to learn Italian. Who knows? Maybe I’ll end up staying here for longer than I thought… stay tuned!

  1. I understand the love for Italy. In fact, we have had this discussion before…Roma is like New York City to you.
    I am so happy you are having fun!! I can’t wait to “run into you” in Italy. Love you!!!
