Exhilarating!!!
 
My name is Dominique. I am in the research/planning process of moving abroad with my two children for a year or so in 2012. I would love any guidance input from others who've made the leap into Expat life (esp those who've done it with little ones in tow).

My children are 3 and 1 and I am mostly curious about what the education/child care scene is like. I am also wondering how much I'll need to make the intitial transition.

I'm thinking I should have at least enough to support us for a month while we get settled in? Any and all info is appreciated!

I'd also like to make some contacts in country before we get there :D.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

As an expat who has lived in various countries I can tell you that you need at least 6 months living money behind you plus of course your fare home. What will you do for an income? Jobs are few and far between, do you speak Italian?
Have a good read through the various threads for guidance.

Hello and thank you for such a wonderful Forum. I am living at present in Australia ( for last 12years) and plan to move to Italy mid 2012. I am a registered nurse with an EU passport (Ireland) and wonder if there are any opportunities for private nursing/companionship in Italy (palliative care or similar) . Perhaps been registered through a UK Nursing Agency may help me gain access to this type of work. I speak some French and Spanish but very little Italian at present and am certainly willing to learn. I have investigated the Italian Nursing Registration process which states i require fluent Italian. Working for people who speak some english would be great initially.
It is a very big leap of faith for me to relocate to the other side of the world but i feel this will do me good. I am a widow and looking forward to enjoying the art and architecture of this beautiful country.
Does anyone have suggestions re;work opportunities?
I look forward to reading the Forum in greater depth as time permits. Again, thank you for all contributions. It makes life easier to know there are others who understand the complexities and challengers in relocating to another land.

We are Tyler and Elizabeth, and Tyler just landed an expatriate position through is company in Napolie! We will be relocating around April, and we're trying to get all of our ducks in a row (as much as that's possible). We were pretty happy to find this place, and we've got a ton of questions. I hope we can pick a few brains along the way!

Ehmm.. I hadn't noticed this thread and didn't even think about introducing myself *glom* Gotta put a remedy to that!

I'm Elisa, 25 years old, and I'm an Italian who spent the last 2 years abroad, one in England and one in Berlin. In November I moved back to my hometown (Bolzano), putting a (temporary, I hope) end to my time as an expat.
I'm here because I've always been interested in the stories of those who decide to move to Italy and in the way my country is seen through their eyes.

Looking forward to getting to know you all =)
