I was born in the US, but have lived in Italy for 18 years. My family is Irish, and I am an Irish citizen, in addition to US and Italian citizenships. My husband is Italian.
I am very interested in ancient Roman history, and in history in general. I also enjoy art, of all periods except over-the-top contemporary. I like to cook and enjoy trying new cuisines. I sometimes splurge on a great restaurant, but usually I enjoy small, family-run restaurants more.
When travelling I often travel by train, as I enjoy train rides. In Italy, my husband and I usually travel by car, but I'm starting to convert him to the train as well. I usually stay in small, inexpensive, but clean and safe hotels. I really don't require luxury as my main interest is what I can see and do, rather than where I stay.
