I came to England nearly 10 years ago in 2001. I came to an Italian restaurant, its
my brothers, on Ocean Road and sometimes I work for a restaurant. After 2 or 3
weeks of staying in England I met an English woman. I couldn’t speak English but I
could speak German but she understood a little bit of German as well. A little bit, not
too much. She came to the restaurant to have a meal and whilst she was there I
talked to her and got her telephone number. After 2002 I married her. Talking with
her, I think she is very good for me for marriage. But I was 85 kilos and I think its
better that I lost the weight as 85 kilos is not nice. For 5 weeks I lost 10 kilos, nearly
a stone and a half. Everyday I would go to the beach and run for 2 hours everyday.
Sometimes even 3 or 4 hours, morning and afternoon. Because my house is near
the beach it is just 2 or 3 minutes near the beach. But I love living near the sea. Now
I am very, very, very happy. I have a beautiful wife. I like England, I’m happy in
England, in South Shields there are very friendly people.
