Ciao! I’m Natalie.
I’m orginally from California, but I have been living in Rome full time since 2010.
That was never the plan.
You see, I moved to Rome to go to graduate school and I fell in love.
I actually didn’t like Rome that much. But I liked Jimmy, a lot.
So we adopted a little gray Roman cat (Bacon).
And I fell crazy mad in love with the city, in addition to the man.
In short, that is how I wound up based in Rome, running around like this:
But I love to travel throughout Italy and beyond. You may see some non-Italian posts on my worldwide adventures but you can filter to find Italy or Rome-specific posts from the menu at the top of every page.
Even with all the travel I have been lucky enough to undertake for work and for pleasure, Rome is still the most beautiful city I have ever seen. I love the unexpected corners of Rome, and the delicious Rome restaurants (naturally).
You can also feel free to contact me anytime. Finally, you will find interviews and more information about commissioning content development (did I mention I am a writer? no?) under the Press section of this site.
P.S. thanks to Sara for the photos of me. My selfie game is WEAK.
