Life of a Blogger: Where I Live

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat.
Every week we talk about a non-bookish topic, so that we get to know each other on a more personal level.

This week's topic: WHERE I LIVE

I was born and raised in Rome, Italy, but a few years ago I moved to London, and I recently celebrated six years in UK. (Wow, where did the time go?) I spent four years in the big city before deciding to leave the chaotic and expensive life to live a more quiet one in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

As you can see from the picture on the left, Peterborough is a Cathedral City. Isn't it gorgeous? And you should see the gardens, once Spring kicks in, they're quite breathtaking... Add to this a special Museum, history around every corner and ghost stories (yeah you heard that right, we have ghosts!), and you know you're in for an awesome treat!

My house is just fifteen/twenty minutes by foot away from the centre and, being so close to it, I pretty much have everything I need at hand: a very big shopping centre + a smaller one with my fave store (think everything gothic and you'll get it!), a bookstore (which every bookworm would be lost without), Starbucks, great places to go eat, etc.

Nevertheless, what I love the most is the fact that here they organise lots of events, so you're always entertained with different stalls I like to spend my time looking at. Ok, possibly buy things, too! :P

Then, especially at this time of year, you can only find yourself completely captivated by the atmosphere ------>

Last but not least, I'm surrounded by green and water, and it's all very peaceful and quite relaxing...
So, how could I not be happy to have moved here?
