To Venice with Love : A Midlife Adventure, Paperback / softback Book

To Venice with Love : A Midlife Adventure Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'An inspiring, life-affirming story' Reader's Digest Philip and Caroline Jones, a middle-aged couple living in Edinburgh, found themselves facing redundancy and an uncertain future.

Until they received some advice from a complete stranger in a pub. Their response was to sell everything in order to move to Venice, in search of a better, simpler life. They were wrong about the 'simpler' bit... To Venice with Love recounts how they arrived in Venice with ten pieces of luggage, no job, no friends and no long-term place to stay.

From struggling with the language to battling bureaucracy; the terror of teaching English to Italian teenagers, the company of a modestly friendly cat... and finally, from debugging financial systems on an Edinburgh industrial estate, to building an ordinary life in an extraordinary city, To Venice with Love is a love-letter to a city that changed their lives.

It's a story told through the history, music, art, architecture (and, of course, the food) of La Serenissima.
