We launched The Bittersweet Life in 2014 and are now on our eighth season. In our vast archive of over 400 episodes and mini-episodes, we cover everything from moving abroad and expat life, to portraits of Rome and travel adventures, from interviews with famous authors and other notable guests to spontaneous discussions of life’s questions, big and small.
If you’re new to the show, we recommend you start at the beginning and take the journey with us. You can also browse our entire archive of episodes below, search for something specific, or browse episodes by topic.
For Adrianne Castro and her husband Joe, a move to Rome had been a very long time in the making. At first it started out as just an idea when they were on a trip with their young son. But then soon found themselves wondering: why not?
Several years, a son settled at college, the recognition of Joe’s Italian citizenship through ancestry, a pandemic, the sale of their home, and a lot of planning later, Adrianne has fulfilled this long-time dream and is living the life she imagined in Rome.
She also just happens to be a longtime listener of the show. She joins us on this inspiring mini-episode to talk about her journey to Rome.
