Ilaria

Ilaria used to live in Dublin with her husband with whom she came for a visit to Gibraltar. They both liked it so she decided to apply for a job offer she found. Six month later, with the job contract they came to La Linea to live. She didn’t know anything about the town but she thought it was more convenient to live here while working in Gibraltar as it’s an economic place and it’s more similar to their home towns.

She was not impressed at the beginning when she saw La Linea, a place that seemed abandoned and dirty. But after a short while she also saw the positive things such as good people, the life style, weather and location. “I like the fact that you can visit any city by car”.

Although she doesn’t have many local friends, she feels integrated partially thanks to the people who make her feel welcomed although there are small things that make her feel uncomfortable some times.

La linea is her town now and she is raising her first son who was born recently.
