This is what we’re here for

I have my husband to thank for landing us in Europe. After-all, he is THE reason that I have seen more countries than I ever thought I would. I’ve met interesting people from all parts of the world, experienced a variety of cultures, and tasted the most amazing food. These experiences have colored my world, and we have basketball to thank! So, I wanted to share some highlights of bball life in Europe.

Avellino game days are so LIT!!

New season, new city!

It is that time again! The start of a new basketball season for my husband, Jason! And, Italy is our new (temporary) home. A new country to explore, different culture to experience, and delicious PIZZA to eat! I’ve been in Italy for about 3 weeks, and Jason has been here for almost 8 weeks.

Do you get excited when it comes to change or is a strict routine your cup of tea? Everyone is different. I LOVE change! It is invigorating and for me, variety is the spice to life! 😉 As long as my hubby is there, and my dog can come along, I am in for an adventure.

September 2017- Avellino City center

First thing I noticed when I left the airport in Napoli (Naples), and get on the road towards my new city, Avellino (30 minutes from Naples), is the driving!! It is nuts! I am almost instantly intimidated! And, I lived in Paris for two years. Paris is known for chaotic streets and confusing roundabouts! As we arrive in Avellino, cars are double/triple parked along small streets which are lined with cafes and small shops. Drivers have to manipulate their way by the randomly parked cars!

Once I look beyond the wild traffic, I see that Avellino is surrounded by larger than life, mountains. I am not used to elevation, but I am instantly loving it! I went from flat, Florida to amazing peaks. The mountain views are visible from our house, and I find myself randomly staring at their presence in awe! Their magnitude makes for an amazing back drop!

Jason brought home an espresso machine! Happy wife!
