Tell me about yourself: who you are, where you’re from, your experience in Italy, etc.
How did you learn about Day by Dom?
Why did you start your site and what is it about?
What is your background with the Italian language?
How do you think your experience as an expat might be different from a student who studied abroad in Italy?
We both come from cold weather places. Do you enjoy the comparatively milder winters in Italy?
That’s a good question because everyone always comments on how I’m probably loving the mild winters BUT let me just say for once and for all, I wear the exact same down parka here in Italy that I wore in Canada! In many ways, I prefer Canadian winters because they are dry but there is beautiful snow and sunshine at the same time. Winters (where I am) can be very dreary, (perhaps could be compared to Seattle?), wet, and gray. The cold seeps into your bones here as opposed to back home.
What is the funniest experience you’ve had as an expat (related to the language barrier, cultural differences, etc):
What is your advice to someone like me who has just recently started a travel or lifestyle blog? What do you attribute your success of Questa Dolce Vita to?
Thanks Jasmine for this collaboration opportunity! It was so fun working on this project and I continue to look forward to reading Questa Dolce Vita in the future.
