As many of you know we are currently overseas in Italy and I have mentioned a few times lately how Sean and I are thinking of extending our stay here by two years.
I had a low-key Girls Night last night and I mentioned the fact we might extend to two girls I'm friends with. They were shocked to put it mildly! One of them actually said, "You like it here?"
What's not to like? I mean, sure there are days when Italians or their way of doing things really get on my nerves. I also have days where I really really miss my friends and family at home. Quite honestly the only reason why I would not want to extend is because of my family and friends since I'd want to be closer to them, but in the grand scheme of things I'll probably live close to them for the rest of my life. So living a couple more years overseas isn't that huge of a deal to me.
I get that overseas living isn't for everyone, but I think when you are young and without children that you should make the best of it (which all of us that were present last night fits that description) One of my friends has actually said she's seen everything she wanted to see. As far as I know she's been only to Rome,Venice, Florence and Munich, plus a few other places in Italy. I've been here a year and I haven't even see 1/10th of the places I want to see!
I don't know it just seems that you either love it here or you hate it here. I guess I'm thankful I've chose to love it.
