Who I am

Author and references

Don't have a fixed home, moving to a new country, with a different culture and language, greet old friends and be ready to make new ones.
Probably many young Italians are absolutely fascinated by this perspective on life.
But "taking flight" is not at all easy ... often those who love you consciously or unconsciously try to dissuade you from leaving, not out of wickedness, rather for fear of moving away from you. Although in most cases a parent is well aware of how "breathing new air" can be a great growth opportunity for their children, they linger in giving their blessing, and they do so for obvious reasons. There are two possibilities foreseen: convince yourself, go on an adventure, collide with the harsh reality and retrace your steps, or discover the "real" world, opening up to new cultures and start living your own life.
Not everyone is suited to living away from home and away from family, but everyone has the right to try to chart their own course.
It is difficult to make such a drastic decision at any age, at 20 as well as at 50.
And when you do it to follow an important person, it's even more difficult. After having lived almost half of their years (and sometimes even more) in a country, making the leap is a gamble, a risk that only a few brave can take.
we at we want to tell you the story of some women who have had this courage: they are the "amichedifuso", women who they followed husbands or companions around the world, or even women who have heard theneed to leave, striving to cope with their own strength. Some have found their dimension and taken root, others are still looking for a place in the world. Anyway they all managed to reinvent yourself both in the personal and work spheres, starting projects and realizing their goals. These girls "teamed up", comforted each other, shared fears and joys, victories and defeats, and they created a community, a large web family.
Loud friend intends to be a window on the Expat phenomenon, a virtual place where those interested can learn what happens outside the "Bel Paese" through the adventures, experiences and daily problems of those who live abroad.
Here are some testimonials of women who have decided to move out of love for love and who still managed to be fulfilled on a human and professional level.
