Times New Roman: How We Quit Our Jobs, Gave Away Our Stuff & Moved to Italy
by Martha Miller
Times New Roman is a true account of lifelong dreams to live abroad, experience another culture, complete an education and alter two career paths.
In Times New Roman, you will learn what that plan entailed, how they decided where to go and how they funded it themselves. Using their experiences as a backdrop, Times New Roman focuses on modern life in the Eternal City. By adapting their lifestyle, they learned how to live, eat, shop, cook and dress as the Romans do. And either through osmosis or out of necessity, they picked up some Italian behaviors they never expected.
