Interview with...an Expat, (and that would be me and no, not a vampire)

In case you were wondering what it's like to run a B&B, or if you were a wee bit curious about how Bella Baita came about, check out my interview over at My Bella Vita. Expat, Cherrye Moore, who is also a talented free lance writer and B&B owner (Il Cedro) in Calabria, has started a new series on her blog, My Bella Vita about expat owned businesses in Italy. She very generously launched it with an interview with little ole me. I'm honored. Cherrye and I have very similar stories, starting with falling in love with an Italian man and moving to his home town to discover "la dolce vita". So if you get a chance head on over to her site as she also has a lot of interesting travel tips on Tuesdays and lots of other helpful information for those of you contemplating the expat life. Thanks Cherrye.
Oh yeah, I forgot to say, you need to go and stay with her at here B&B in the south and with us in the north!

It is my pleasure, Marla! The worst part is, now I am even more anxious to get away from my B&B and visit yours! ha

I wish I could stay at your B&B one day.

We would all love to stay at your B & B some day. Wouldn't that be something:D

I love the portrait of the two of you, it's really appealing.

Thanks Fern, it is a sweet photo one of our guests took last week.
Yes it would be wonderful to have a confab of bloggers come here and cook together!

Bella Baita View said...

or even just eat together!

It's amazing how expats have such a great connection here in Italy. I can't wait to join the crew and be a part!

Bella Baita View said...

Peter you're always welcome anytime!

One of these days when I get out there again, may I have the pleasure of interviewing you?

Marla, loved your interview. I know sometimes the work is hard, but you are blessed with living a dream life!

I definitely feel blessed and don't really think of my work hard. Hard work was standing on my feet in commercial kitchens for long long hours. That was hard.
