Following my cluttering up other posters' threads with responses to other old Venice hands kindly asking how our move here is going & offering advice, or my offering advice myself, I thought I'd better start my own thread; also the info may help others.

Btw I've kept my caroline_edinburgh Fodor's name as otherwise I'd have to register as a new user, which is a shame.

A wee bit of background previously posted elsewhere...

DH & I were working for a bank in the UK and it had got more & more horrible over the last few years, with constant redundancies; so we both decided to take the plunge, take voluntary redundancy (which gives us enough to live on for a year or two), retrain in TEFL & move to Venice to give it a go. Although we are EU citizens we still had various hoops to jump through for residency. We had 7 weeks of just settling in, recovering from the move & enjoying ourselves; now into our 6th week of an intensive Italian course (we are doing 12 weeks) then will start looking for work. If we can't make enough to live on we'll just have to come up with another plan, but in the meantime we've rented a flat for a year.

Stop press: we picked up our residency certification & Carte d'Identita today & immediately got 2 celebratory Negronis reduced from E14 to E10!!

Ciao, Caroline
