Expats Portugal Life Magazine

expatsportugal.com introduces expatsportugal life. This online magazine offers a bit of entertainment and information on life in Portugal for English speaking ex-pats.

We have invited some of the best portugal-expat bloggers to contribute with the aim of making a compendium of high quality, interesting writing and a portfolio of gorgeous photography and illustrations.

Our writers come from all over Portugal; from the Minho to the Algarve. Some, like papersurfer and lucy pepper have been in Portugal for some 20 years, while other contributors are relative newbies.

We hope that the magazine will be a new format for sharing the expat experience of living in Portugal and will strengthen the community already founded in the expats portugal forum.

Have an enjoyable read!
