I came to a job decision! I am moving to ITALY (even with food allergies). I will teach at an international school there starting in the fall. I’m thrilled for this new life adventure. Now that I have made this decision, it is only the beginning of all of the details I will need to figure out with my food allergies before I leave. It is a country where I do not speak the language. I will need to figure out how to get around language barriers and find allergy safe foods to eat. I have traveled to Italy before, but I will be living in an area I have never been to. I think it will be a great experience for personal growth as I navigate the unknown with my allergies. It will certainly be a test of my independence, and will be an even greater test of my ability to find food and adjust to a country where the first language isn’t English. This should be an interesting challenge! I will try to write more about my questions, concerns, and how the process is going soon.
