I was brought up in England but we moved to live in Zurich, Switzerland a long time ago. My wife is Italian and our daughter Sophia who is eleven is growing up with three languages in her life.. It's great to grow up in a home where all these worlds are mixed together. At times it's crazy and chaotic, but in the quiet moments when you can reflect on the good that comes out of the chaos, you realise how rich life is. - 'Life is like a trifle'
We sold our house in the UK to buy a home in Italy. On a cold, wet February morning we walked into Lucca through one of the wall gates and immediately decided this was the place where we wanted a home. We spent almost two years looking for an apartment and were on the verge of giving up when we walked into this one. We knew we had walked into something very special, it really does takes your breath away.
