Where I Would Live If I Could
by Real Estate Sales Representative Adam Sly
In my life I’ve been fortunate enough to do a lot of travelling. I’ve visited a lot of exotic places in this world, and I’ve even lived in a few of them! Mexico, Panama, Vancouver, Calgary and even Texas to name a few! But if I could choose one place on earth that is extra special to me, I’d choose Southern Italy.
My family ancestry leads back to the Avellino area, which is near Naples. Today, I still have family that lives in Salerno, near the Almalfi Coast. And believe it or not, I’m an Italian citizen, even though I don’t speak the language! It’s a stunning area that I have travelled to before, but there is SO MUCH more to explore between the coast & the hills! This particular part of Italy is rich in history dating back to Ancient Roman times, Catholocism and more recently World War II. It’s hard to imagine all of the historical events that have taken place throughout the area.
One thing everyone raves about Italy is the FOOD! The ingredients are so fresh and they’ve really perfected the cuisine. Who doesn’t love Italian food?!
I have a dream of taking up sailing near Capri – a stunning part of Southern Italy with gorgeous homes and endless beaches. I’d love to have one of those homes in the villages you see built into the steep sides of the rocky hills with panoramic views of the ocean. And who knows where my travels will take us! Maybe one day the dream will come true of living there. Until then, I can’t wait for my next trip to Southern Italy.
