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.
