Maheshwaran Jothi A Fellow Traveler

Travel was not my career but rather, my career involved more on travel. Yes, being in the semiconductor domain I had to always travel for business since India had almost no silicon fabs. That is how my steps outside India happened. 

Some travel to blog, and some travel for joy. I belong to the latter tribe. I believe traveling for the sole reason to blog loses all the charm and excitement in the journey. I blog my travel. My blogs will be the experience of the traveler in YOU. 

What do I love most? Travel – be it driving or on the train. I always loved to watch those trees and fields moving fast and playing hide-and-seek while I peep through those glass windows of the high-speed trains.

Because it’s the Journey that matters!

Tips for Expats in Italy

I moved to Milan, Italy in 2013. The bureaucracy and laws were a big challenge and are well known in Italy. With no friends or relatives in here to guide, it was difficult. So, once I moved I decided to document the experience and procedures and thus born the Tips for Expat in Italy.

This section is based on my years of research, personal experience in Italy, and interviews I have with fellow expatriate friends living in Italy.
