Bom Dia,

I have been a member of expats Portugal since 2014 and have not been looking out for the website for many months because it was clearly undergoing a transformation.

I always preferred this forum to the others that are online, I think it has more of a community feel.

I must congratulate you leaders on what you have created. I can't think of anything to compare for immigrants/ex pats in Portugal.

I am not a fan of the wider social media platforms except youtube and whatsapp so this forum feels like a safer space. 

We have finally bought a house in Portugal near Alcobaca after many years of touring the country to find somewhere that felt right for us.

We bought during the pandemic so it has been a challenging experience. We still have a couple of years to work in the UK before we can make the move permanent.   

Congratulations on your hard work, it has produced something rather awesome. I have upgraded to a premium member to show my support for what you are doing. The website is an invaluable source of information, support and friendship. I love the sessions you run with Portuguese businesses such as ACP and Mia the teacher. I will be taking advantage of both of these so keep it up team.

Obrigado

 

Stephen

@stephenwonders 

Thank you Stephen for your kind comments and for upgrading to Premium Membership.

We feel we have come a long way from a simple forum and we still have much to do and a long way to go. But we have never lost sight of the excellent community spirit across our membership, something we see as a strength and will continuously work hard to maintain. Of course this only happens through the support of our wonderful members.

Congratulations to you on the house purchase. Alcobaca is a great location and we look forward to assisting you towards your final move.

Thanks again from @astridff, @carlm, @sally-in-lisbon, and yours truly. Much appreciated 👍

@carlm We are enjoying the daily show on youtube. Informative and entertaining. It is amazing to know how many very well informed people we have in the group. Any chance of getting some radio space for the show to go out on dab or fm?

@carlm Yes would be good. There are some really good Portuguese stations around Caldas and Alcobaca that play a good mix of English language and Portuguese music. I am getting into Fado, especially the modern stuff. I don't bother with my apple music much in Portugal, we listen to the radio mostly. It is also a good way to learn a bit of Portuguese. It's all part of the adventure.
