drinking wine while trying to find work in Rome

Guy Drinks Wine, Lands Job, Karma Served

Like the story of so many magical romances, it happens when you least expect it. Determined at finding work in Rome, my next adventure job abroad has arrived while socializing during a meal (red wine, white wine, aperitifs, digestifs) at a restaurant in Rome. I may just find a job in Rome after all. I am on a roll and really feeling the amor in Italy.

But just because the job lead is looking promising for finding work in Rome, doesn’t mean I will rest on my laurels. No. In fact, I will go out and drink wine night, after night, after night if that is what is takes to find a job in Rome.
