Sono nata in Inghilterra, a Grays e mi sono trasferita in Italia 30 anni fa, in un piccolo villaggio a soli 2 km sopra Palleggio per passare un anno con i miei nonni. Così ho incontrato mio marito e sono rimasta in Italia. La casa a Palleggio è la casa della famiglia di mio marito. Oggi abitiamo a Viareggio, sulla costa, con le nostre due figlie.
Nei mesi estivi lavoro per un tour operator inglese. Mi piace molto il mio lavoro, ma quando abbiamo tempo torniamo volentieri a Palleggio per stare tutti insieme e rilassarci. Ci piace prenderci cura della casa per renderla più confortevole per noi e per i nostri ospiti.
La gente del posto è molto cordiale e disponibile. Ho sempre apprezzato le manifestazioni locali che si svolgono durante i mesi estivi a Bagni di Lucca e nei paesini vicini.
I moved to Italy 30 years ago, to a small village just 2 kms above Palleggio where my grandparents lived. There I met my husband. The house in Palleggio is his family home. Now we live in Viareggio on the coast with our two daughters.
I work in the summer months as a holiday adviser for an English tour operator, which I enjoy. But when we have time we still like to return to Palleggio to relax and unwind, and we like to renew things in the house to make it more comfortable for us and for our guests.
The locals are all very friendly and helpful also. I have always enjoyed the local events which are held during the summer months at Bagni di Lucca and in surrounding villages.
