Over the past few months, we have been excited to see so many new people join our community and many returning members from the old format. I thought it would be a good idea to get to know each other a bit better.

If you want to participate, please mention where you are from and where you are living right now (can be Portugal or abroad). You may discover other people who are close by or at the same stage in their journey as you. I will start...

DID YOU KNOW: You can "connect" with other community members by searching for their username and send private messages via Profile section of your account?

I am from Australia and live between Sintra/Belas and our country home in Castelo de Vide! Have two daughters aged 10 and 12

Bom dia, a todos.    We are from England, currently still here but moving to central Portugal in the next couple of weeks - it's been a long and frustrating wait, but the borders are finally open, the ferry is booked, the van is packed, we're good to go....  Yey!   Our new home is between Tábua and Oliveira do Hospital.

Hi Astrid how do you do a private message via the Profile area please. I can’t seem to find a place to search for a username. Unless I’m just being a bit dim 😂

I spent my early years (up to age 9) just down the road from Tamworth (a small village called Harlaston) and still have family in Lichfield.

Born at Walsall hospital, lived in Burntwood, then Harlaston, then Bucks till University (and all over the UK after that). Now happily ensconced in Moncarapacho, near Faro, in the Algarve...

We lived across the road from the pub (although I never went in there for obvious reasons). I remember it being a lovely village but haven't been back for 40 odd years now...

I currently live in St Helens, Lancs, UK and hoping to move to Somewhere east of Coimbra in the Gois kind of area. But not made any decisions yet - need to do a recce...!  This forum is proving a big part of my research though! I have always gone for 'word of mouth' recommendations and anecdotes rather than purely information on websites and that's why this forum is a great resource...

 @peterfc So I currently live not too far away from where you originated from and may well end up in a similar area to where you are now!!  😀
