I'm hoping to move to Portugal soon but for a number of reasons we'll need to go back to the UK regularly.

I'm interested in hearing if anyone else does this? How do you handle the practicalities? And has it affected your integration in Portugal?

@stx99 Which practicalities are you thinking of? Comms, mail, travel, quarantine?

@andydoc Good question - I realise I left it a bit vague.

I guess I'm thinking about what you do with mail and home security when you're in the other country.

And whether you register and de-register for healthcare, driving licences and the like?

Cheers

I guess it depends where your principal residence is and the lengths of time and intervals you spend in the other
