Hello everyone! 

Before arriving in Porto, I want to introduce myself and make some connections. My name is Ali, and I am a 29-year-old creative director. I will be moving to Porto this Sunday! I am incredibly excited to start my new journey in Portugal. I would love to get to know some of you currently living in Porto and, share experiences/gain insights into my new life.

I look forward to participating in this form to help others and learn new tips and tricks along the way!

Hi Ali,

Congrats! I hope to be retiring there in a few years so I'm completely envious. I'll be making my initial trip to Porto in September so I'm looking for the same tips and advice. Hope it's a wosnderful new life for you!

Hi Ali @aliexpat - Welcome to Porto! Definitely come check out the coffee group on Tuesdays in Gaia. It's a great group of women. There are always posts about different events happening and things to do locally.   Our monthly meetups are also fun and a great way to make connections and friendships.
