I’m new to the group from earlier this month. I have been hooked on the idea of Portugal for slowing down / semi-retirement for almost a year. The superintendent of our building retired to the Braga area at about the same time. He has regaled us with fantastic stories about rent and food prices and sport and leisure activities.
I’ve started learning Portuguese on Duolingo and looking at real estate listings. I’ve been studying Google Maps and Street View and reading anything I can find. That is how I found ExpatsPortugal.
The catch is I’ve never have the opportunity to visit Portugal. I was prepping to do so when the pandemic lockdown started. I don’t look at that as a stumbling block though.
We have been in Switzerland for 16 years based on a weekend visit so I am looking at Portugal as a new adventure for us.
I look forward to meeting some of you Virtually and In Real Life and sharing this great site.
