As those of you that know us already are aware, we  absolutely love it here.  The people are wonderful, the food is wonderful, and we usually do not find ourselves wanting for much.  We've managed to pick up a bit of Italiano here and there, and we find that if we make an honest effort, most of the Italians know enough English that between the two of you, you can usually get a conversation across just fine.

We, obviously chose to live in La Maddalena, mostly because this is where we found a house.  We believe that we'd be just as happy if we lived in Palau, however.  There's much to be said for both sides.  The obvious advantage to LaMadd is the social life, what with the Piazza Umberti being so accessable and so popular.

So many people have sent me Email asking questions about living in La Maddalena that I started a FAQ page.  My email backlog for this page was getting crazy (I have 120 unanswered emails in my inbox.)   Don't get me wrong, we enjoy the email, but you may need to expect a time delay in answering your email.  Anyway, you're probably better off checking  the sponsor team FAQ page here for answers.   This is their job and their love in life, and therefore are actually likely to answer them if you contact them.  (draw your own conclusions from that on time for ME to answer you...)
