My name is Keren and I live in Alghero in Sardinia, Italy. I grew up in Montreal (Canada) but I’ve lived abroad in various cities and countries most of my life- mostly in the US and in Europe. I met my husband who is Sardinian 12 years ago when I came for a three month teaching contract.
We love to travel but we don’t get away as much anymore because of our large animal family! However, we have had really great sitters come stay with our donkeys and cats several times, up until Italy went into lockdown in March 2020. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our June 2020 vacation and are only now starting to think about travelling again.
We have a last minute sit coming up, the first week of November. We’d like to go to Naples where the Run for the Cure race is happening. I’ll be running if we can go. It’s important to me because I’ve had some friends die of breast cancer and a few women I know are currently going through chemo. My mother included. So hopefully we’ll find someone
Our next vacation will hopefully be in January. We’d like to go to India but for now Italians cannot travel there so we have to wait and see. Western Canada and Morocco are also on our wish list.
Our home in Sardinia is in the quiet countryside on a property with an olive grove, near the beach and near old town. Our home is our sanctuary. We also have a yoga room where I used to teach. Alghero is a lovely little city and tourists really like it here. We went for a boat trip for my birthday at the end of September. It was incredible! Even though we live here, there are still many things we haven’t done.
So that’s it in a nutshell.
Nice to meet everyone
