Xiongmao is currently in Sicily and so here's a mini-trip report.
The women here are very hot, way better than they were in Barcelona. And there are no foreigners here at all (if you discount the South Asian, Iraqui and African immigrants). I've pretty much got the place to myself, apart from tourist day trippers from the cruise liners who only visit one or two streets anyway, and return to their boat before it goes to their next destination.
There's increasing demand for English teachers here, so definitely consider it if you're wanting to check out the HA lifestyle.
Nice and sunnny.
Hoards of well dressed women.
Very interesting things to see, but they're often hidden away.
Mountains if you like hiking, and sea if you like beach stuff.
Living costs appear low, but it's not as cheap as Spain.
Only 2.5 hours from the UK and a lot of the rest of Europe.
Cold at night.
Lots of poverty - the back streets look more like the slums of Guangzhou than anywhere else I've visited.
Not as much to do compared to places like Barcelona or Rome. Definitely the least interesting place I have visited (but I have been lucky to have visited some amazing places).
Kind of underdeveloped. The locals have got excited because a Lidl (German supermarket) has just opened. Eating options are limited if you don't want to go to a restaurant all the time.
Customer service is pretty awful.
Not much English signage around although if you know Spanish you can get by.
Sounds pretty "third world" for Western Europe. Seeing attractive women is a good sign, and often means you're in a non-feminist zone. But doesn't Italy still have misandrist laws and policies enforced? I need to check out their birth-rate.
Another plus is I can't remember ever reading that Italy is taking in any Muslim "refugees."
