Hence, the standard all-about-me spiel:
My name is Lisa, I'm 22 years old and I first came to live in Italy for the Leonardo da Vinci work experience programme in May 2007, nearly a year after finishing my degree in English and Philosophy at home in Merrie Englande. Came, loved it, planned how to get back as soon as possible - and now I live in Padova, a small-ish city about thirty minutes from Venice, where I teach English, try to learn how to speak Italian, and eat pasta.
If I were speed-dating, I would now reveal that I enjoy reading, shopping and long walks on the beach. But I'm not. So I won't.
I plan to use this space to talk about me (memememe! What else is blogging for?), Italy, life.
