Hi everyone,

Best,

Leslie and Ben Williams

welcome to Portugal. We live in the Algarve but before covid loved to travel. If we get up to Porto, we will message you. Thanks for the invite. And the same goes for you if you come down to the Algarve for a visit.

We would definitely love to meet up with you guys. We are hoping to get there June 1st but our application process keeps getting delayed so...

We have an apartment set up to move into on June 1st so we will get there as close to that date as possible, depending upon when our visas comes in and when we are allowed to travel due to COVID. Fingers crossed Europe gets great access to vaccinations soon!

Reach out to us when you arrive and feel like meeting new people. You can find me at Leslie Franklin Williams on Facebook or email LFWgonegirl@gmail.com

a great way to meet new friends in your area and to get specific hints about your area is to join a local expat group. I found this site by searching google for "ex-pat group in Porto, Portugal" you can do the same for any city.

Expats in Porto - Community and Forum for Expats

An ancient and sprawling city in Portugal's Norte Region, life in Porto can take some getting used to for new arrivals. That's why at InterNations we offer an extensive platform where you can connect with a community of fellow expats and access a variety of useful resources.
