Cathy Powell was born in Australia. In her teenage years she started to think about travelling to Europe particularly Italy and England. 1997 was the year she first experienced what Europe had to offer. She returned again in 1999 and saw more of Italy, and ended up settling in a town called Tuscania with her Italian husband. From 2001 – 2006 she lived back in Australia, but the lure of Italy enticed her back. After 6 years in Italy, she is now based in south east England with her husband and two children.
“Italy, and the spring and first love all together should suffice to make the gloomiest person happy.” –Bertrand Russell
