I’ll put it on my list to record again!
Lisa Condie, founder of Better Way Italy and contributor to Huffington Post, picked up her entire life and moved to Florence, Italy in June of 2012.
It’s a dream that many of us imagine but never take action to accomplish, and Lisa is living proof that it’s possible AND introduces a whole lotta’ joy into your life, which is what we’re all about at The Iceberg Project.
So it was my absolute pleasure to chat with her about all things Italian to get her perspective and hear her story.
— What ultimately made Lisa decide to move to Florence, Italy full time
— The differences in how Italians and Americans conduct business
— Lisa’s favorite phrases in Italian that always make Italian smile
— What she would do on days when she was really discouraged with Italian
— Which pieces of the language that she still struggles with
— Her three favorite things to do in her city of Florence, Italy
— How she started her tours in Tuscany and what makes them unique out of a sea of Italian tour groups
— How she manages to roll with the Italian lifestyle when things go wrong
