Why leaving Italy is sometimes not a bad thing


My few angry points about that life in L´Aquila can sometime be too foreign and leaving Italy is not a bad thing. Or, at least, why was the life in Italy sometime too foreign for me.

First part of packing done, nearly ready to go. Feelings? No hard feelings. I am not a big fan of long lists but read here why ..So, from a very critical point of view, what else, besides Math, did my last 2 years in Italy teach me (or skip direcly down under the video): 

  1. That Italian university can be better organised than a German one (and both can start 15 minutes later)
  2. Even if you study applied mathematics, the theses can be your first mathematical application you do
  3. There is a messier country in Europe than Slovakia
  4. Myths about Italian mafia are true
  5. Italy can be is more expensive than Germany
  6. Limoncello is as horribly sweet as everyone says
  7. Italians don’t work from 2pm – 4pm and in august, they barely work at all
  8. Hungarians are actually not those with the funniest English accent
  9. They do get rid of pets when going for a holiday and after that they do buy a new one
  10. I understood the hidden true behind this video

Why leaving Italy is sometimes not a bad thing

  1. Everything is happening domani. But you never know which domani.
  2. 95% of people are disobeying the rules but that moment when you actually need them to disobey them, they change their mind to have a German day.
  3. Until something is actually happening you don’t know if it will happen.
  4. It is a expensive country.
  5. Food is great. But, honestly, there is an Italian restaurant in every European city and tomatoes grow everywhere. If you shop in Lidl or Carrefour (have I mentioned the prices here?), the only difference is higher price.
  6. Everything can change last minute.
  7. They mostly don’t separate waste and muchly waste the water.
  8. If the bus doesn’t come, it doesn’t come. No problem. 
  9. Drama queens all around could be an exotic experience for a while. But if you can’t even go for a morning dog walk without hearing 3 arguments to start your day, you rather get up an hour earlier (or two hours later).
  10. They don’t use indicators when driving. They know where they are going and the others shouldn’t care.

Disclosure:

  1. I still love Germany and all my Hungarian friends!
  2. I do believe Italy is an amazing country and there is definitely a big piece of true behind the ‘bella italia‘ .. I have just spent too much time here
  3. And I know that one day, these days will be called the good old times and I will write an article about why I adore Italy and L’Aquila
