As a child, I spent many holidays in the Algarve, which means I’ve always had Portugal under my skin.
In around 2006, I started exploring the country more actively, and in 2016, began the process of planning to move here.
Whilst Lisbon has always had a great appeal, the balance of a smaller city (Santarém) as the focal point of a diverse rural area (the Ribatejo) brought my partner and me to this region, which we continue to enjoy, explore and promote.
