Hi Everyone, heading out for my 1st scouting trip

I've been watching and listening for a while but this is my first post.  I'm currently retired and living in Northern California, contemplating a relocation to Portugal.  I depart on Monday, January 24, for my first reconnaissance trip. 😬 🙄  I like everything I've seen about the eastern Algarve so I have a week scheduled in VRSA, Tavira and Faro, with a few days left at the end for Lisbon.  I would love to meet up for a coffee/beer and a chat if anyone's open.

Hope you enjoy your stay in Portugal. You're lucky there's no rain (bad luck for us residents) but unlucky for the unusual colder weather.

@antonio_f Thanks Antonio.  We're having similar weather in Northern CA right now so at least I know what to pack. 😉

I hope you had a good trip.  I'm 10 months behind, about to undertake the same discovery journey next month (Nov), starting from Lisbon (haven't decided which direction afterwards).   Would appreciate any insights/ tips you may have !
