Hi all 🙂 I am Frances from SF Bay Area, California living in Berlin for the last 8 years. This December, I will be obtaining my permanent EU residency card and planning to move to Porto next year with my Canadian partner. We fell in love with Porto in our last visit and feel ready for the next chapter in our lives in Portugal.
So far, my biggest fear is shifting away from the German system I've grew to be familiar with, but I am ready for the challenges moving to a new country (again) will present.
So grateful for this forum. A similar forum helped me to find my oldest & closest friend in Berlin nearly a decade ago. I hope to connect with warm people who have made the move and/or are in their planning stages too.
