How long does the magic of Rome last to an expat?

We recently received an email from a listener, an Australian who spent 5 years in Milan and has now been living in Rome for over a year. He wonders: when will the bubble burst? How long will he feel like his entire life is surreal, like he is living in a dream? Does the magic of living in Italy ever pass? Does it ever become mundane?

Tiffany and Katy have lots of opinions. Listen in as they discuss!
