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.

I've yet to visit Padova, but I've always wanted to. Your photo of Padova is lovely! Welcoming to the blogging world :).

Thank you Chris, Erin and Stelle! I'm looking forward to being part of the blogging community. Padova's not really one of the greatest hits of Italy, but it is a lovely city.
