I can't wait to leave this country. The new government, trying to clear some of the incredibly high public debt has risen the cost of petrol. Not 1cent not even 2cents but over night they rose unleaded by 9cents and diesel by 13cents!!!! Early last year a litre of diesel was about 1.18euro, now it's 1.67euro. Sorry, but have our wages risen during this time of economic recession. No, the opposite really. The Government wants to make us suffer even more for their mistakes. Wages have not risen since I've lived here but everything else is more expensive and now this!

Leanne,
Now that you know you are leaving, everything seems to take on a different shade and things that you once may have found charming or even just "non-bothersome", take a on a different look...Right before we moved to Calif, the economy was going from lira to euro and we watched as family, friends ended up paying twice as much for the same items without any increase in wages!!! Best now to remain content in your hopes and plans for a "new" life and be happy you're moving on from this crisis and all those still to come...
it's funny how different our lives are and yet how parallel at the same time.

Leanne, I just found your blog. I am also 100% Italian (and 100% Australian as well..). I have been reading through your journey with great interest this morning. My parents migrated back to Italy (near Trieste) when I was very young (in the 70s) but my father could not find work (even back then - he was 50, considered "too old") and after 2 years we migrated back (luckily it was easy then).
In spite of this, I dream of living in Italy and that charming life. But reality it seems is quite different. Good luck with your application and eventual move back.

That's a shame your leaving Italy. I am an Aussie in Italy & would check your blog occasionally, for useful tips :) I moved to Italy from Sydney a year ago & things are also very expensive in Australia, but as you say there is more opportunity and it is easier to find a good job in Australia.

Good Luck for the future
