Italia By James Rankin

You would not believe this trip. It will now become one of the landmark turning points of my life. Calabria has changed me in the same way the novel “The Alchemist” once did. I have found for myself another type of wealth, another meaning to success, that isn’t based on how much money you have or your material possessions. It’s based on sharing everything you have, it’s based on “my house is your house.” It starts with culture, history and ends in unity. It’s about being the head of your family, having generations of your family still together at your house, your dinner table, whilst your beautiful grandchildren are reaching up at your chair to be held by you. It’s about contentment. Not needing anything more than the people around you. It’s about love. It is now one of the 3 things I see for my life.
