It’s no secret Italy abounds with natural beauty, stunning people and ageless architecture. And the food ain’t bad, either.
But what goes on behind the scenes? Where do the stereotypes end and the real Italy begin?
Frequent visitors to the bel paese have witnessed death-defying collisions on Italian roadways, know you can’t find a decent, if any, restaurant open before 7:30 PM and have been whistled or stared at by men half their age. But that one is not so bad.
Megan, the Expat Coach at Career by Choice recently tweeted a few of us Italian expats with the teaser, “You know you are Italy when …” Michelle followed up with an extended post at BE.com and bam! A contest was born.
The contest is being hosted at Career by Choice and you can learn all about it here. The contest has been extended and now ends at MIDNIGHT (Italian time) on Tuesday, September 30!
Not an Italian expat? No worries. Megan will be hosting these snapshot contests for expats of other countries in coming months. So head on over to Career by Choice to either enter the contest or read the more than 100 entries previously submitted. And if you are not an expat, feel free to leave your “You know you are in Italy when …” comments below.
Good luck and Happy Love Thursday.
