Locals I love – Kate Hash

Must read post by one of my favorite Americans living in Italy, Georgette, about one of my other favorite Americans living in Italy, Kate!

You can purchase your own copy for a nominal fee from her blog. The blogging world is an amazing place filled with amazing people.

We met when she needed some help getting her dual citizenship to stay in Italy and needless to say a friendship was born. I have spent many a day with them having lunch/sipping wine/playing with baby. I have to admit they make living in Italy look easy when it really isn’t — all by just being awesome at LIFE. They just happen to be very self motivated, down to earth good people and may or may not have been on House Hunter’s International in the past ;-).

name: Kate Hash
nationality: American and Italian
profession: Web designer and developer
favorite drink: Cosmopolitan or prosecco (it’s a tough choice!)

How long have you lived in Florence and where are you from originally?
