Occupation: Retired. [From a career in information technology and project management].
I moved to my current country because: I wanted to find a place to retire where the cost of living is low, the lifestyle is relaxed, the weather is moderate (similar to Southern California) and a place close to the sea. I spent 2 months in Lecce, Italy in the spring of 2019 and fell in love with the area.
The three things you need to make it here is:
2. Openness to explore and experience different foods and cultures
3. Ability to speak Italian (I’m still working on this)!
If you’re considering living here, you need to leave this behind: Emotional baggage the limits experiences in Italy.
