  1. I, for one, would LOVE to work in Italy. I’m actually looking to work abroad currently so I will check out the site. By the way, nice article. I’ve discovered teaching abroad as a good option, but there doesn’t seem to be a while lot of other practical or realistic options (at least for me).

    • Grazie for reading, Shay! I have heard of many people who have chosen teaching English as their gateway to living and working abroad. I too considered the option, but I sort of lucked out with the arrangement that I did end up with! Have you travelled to Italy before?

      • I have never been to Italy, though it is on the top list of places to travel. I couldn’t imagine living there, that would be amazing. I do see people on House Hunters International getting summer homes. Maybe when I have enough money and time I will consider this option 🙂

  2. Sarah, I REALLY want to read this whole article, as it IS one of the ideas I have for working in Italy, but when I follow the link and click on the article to “read more” it never loads – do you have the article you could share? Thank you!!!
