About Us

• GERALDINA •

I was born and grew up in Livorno, Italy, where I still have my family and many of my friends. I lived in Bologna and in Rome, then I moved to Milan where I live and work as a web marketing consultant.

• ANDREW •

I was born in Philadelphia and was raised in Florida where my parents are. After my schooling I moved to Southern California where I currently live and work (when I’m not in Italy with Geraldina).

Our Story

Less than three years ago, fate and a few mouse clicks brought Andrew and Geraldina together. They went from almost complete strangers to (virtually) inseparable in a few days. This is how it all began.

2012

Geraldina was planning to visit California and Andrew offered her his place for couchsurfing. She accepted the invitation.
We first met in San Diego on September 3rd, 2012. We drove to Tijuana the same night. Geraldina ended up staying in SD for the rest of her vacation. Andrew took her desert camping and she cooked pasta with home made pesto for him and roommates.

“Do you know what’s the most important ingredient of the recipe?”

Andrew left Geraldina at SD airport. She left him a note between his drawings.

2013

After months of texting and skyping (and some visa troubles) Geraldina flew to Baja California, Mexico, in August, 2013. We met in Tijuana (again), almost one year after our first “date”. We had a week of surfing, clubbing, eating and lots of Mexico fun. Despite all awkward bureaucracy and some Mexican sketchy taxi driver, we knew something special was happening.

 “Que díficil se me hace mantenerme en esto viaje…”

Long distance relationship blossomed.
Beautiful flowers arrived unexpectedly to Geraldina’s work.     

2014

More typing and skyping followed.

Still uncertain about what to expect, Andrew flew to Italy in April 2014. Geraldina took him to lunch with her friends so he finally could learn some of the livornese dialect, and introduced him to her family. We were together in Milan, Pisa, Livorno, Bolgheri, Rome and Milan again in less than one week.

Skype helped again when coming to big decisions.

We got legally married on September 1st, 2014, in Milan, after incredibly putting all the paperwork together in a few days. Andrew got a small taste of (this time Italian) bureaucracy, but we also had 11 days vacationing and relaxing before the civil ceremony. We visited Venice, Cortina, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Cinque Terre and had spa treatments in Milan.
Christmas time and new brother-in-law’s wedding brought Andrew to Italy for the 3rd time in a year. Winter tours included Naples, Turin and a train journey across snowy mountains to the freezing Saint Moritz, Switzerland.

2015

Sicily! We had a great tim visiting Palermo, Cefalù, Scopello, San Vito Lo Capo and more in June, 2015. Our flight was at 6 in the morning and we almost lost some clothes at the airport but it was worth. Now we have a Sicily flag hanging (on the wrong side) in our Milan house.
