Miss Expatria was born on October 9, 2002 on a sofa previously owned by Robert Altman, whom she never met. She raised herself in an empty palazzo on the sea in Lavinio, Italy. Later, she moved to Rome and became the doyenne of the Gay Mafia.
Some time later and quite by chance, she was swept off her feet by a man in the South of France. Jet-setting glamour ensued. Love was in the air. But suddenly, she was forced to return to the city that broke her heart – New York – for one year, during which she plotted her escape.
After languishing in exile she finally was able to return to the South of France with the above mentioned man and a cat named Ladybird Johnson. She now confounds locals by speaking French with an Italian accent, and gets yelled at by her tabac owner for mispronouncing “bleu.”
Not everyone has her circumstances, and not everyone has the same desires as she. But whatever your ideas are about how life should be lived, she begs you to follow them until you drop.
Miss Expatria comes to you from the other side of her dreams, and she is telling you it is worth it.
Miss Expatria has been linked to in the Wall Street Journal, quoted in the Huffington Post , profiled in Cosmopolitan Italia, and on the front page of USA Today! She’s also written several books including an expat executive’s guide to Berlin; how to get married, purchase real estate in and retire to Italy; and, for some reason, over 60 relationship and dating guides. She was the editor of BootsnAll’s France Travel Guide, has written itineraries for Fortnighter, has cooked on Italian morning television for reasons which are still unclear, and currently is the lead contributor for all France-related content on Viator.
