Not yet. We understand the need to get one, but we are just starting the process of moving. Our USA house will go on the market soon. But as you know, it takes a bit to find the right place to live. We have vacillated back and forth between France and Italy and have just recently decided on Italy. We are excited, are beginning to learn Italian and have found one house that fits our needs (with renovation). Worst case scenario, if we are denied residency (which hopefully will not happen) we could use the home as a vacation home and travel the rest of the time.
We are not wealthy, but are comfortable enough to leave for other parts of the EU for a period of time each year.
Do you have any pitfalls that we may experience that would be helpful?
