Hello from the US....My name is Maria and I am planning on moving to Portugal in the future.  Full disclosure...I was born in Portugal (Silver Coast) but came to the US when I was 2 years old.  I have been back a few times to visit and do speak some Portuguese.  I consider myself an expat because I've lived in the US over 45+ years and am a US citizen.  I would like to move to a more tourist friendly expat area so I can connect with others that perhaps have a similar story to mine.  I am learning a lot by watching the posted videos and appreciate this supportive community!  XO

Thanks for joining Maria.

I would think returning to the Silver Coast may tick your boxes for finding expat-friendly areas. Know there are a few on this forum...

Keep us updated on your progress with your move. Reading everyone's stories have been great.
