It's been a while – General Chit Chat & Conversations – Expats Portugal Forum

Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Hello all,

Can't believe it's been over eighteen months since I was last on here.

I was very sorry to read of Simons passing Emma. Such a sad loss and far too young.

I'm not sure how many of you on here remember Steve Masters? He was living in Porto when I joined. He returned to the UK a few years ago. Not sure if he was still on here or not. Sadly Steve passed away yesterday (Sunday), 2 months after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He was 52 years old.

I hope that other familiar names are still here, that you are all well.... and I send you all best wishes.. xx

I have a feeling Steve may have posted on here as tivinho. Hope I haven't got that wrong but I'm sure a lot of the members on here would remember that name - he always had a lot of interesting stuff to say and no, he hasn't been around for some long time.

52 is tragically young.

And hi, Cally - hope you're doing well.

Hi Cally

Welcome back from me sadly in Liverpool but not for long. I only came back to help with Mum going into a care home and now I am counting the days when I can return to my home.

Although not quite as busy as the Forum had been you will recognise many who are still alive and kicking and enjoying life in Portugal.

Any news on your long awaited move?

Good luck

Hi all, sorry for delay in reply.

Tivinho, that was it X Camone, knew he was under a different name but couldn't remember what.

Things still very much the same for me, still in Welsh Borderlands. Still not got to Portugal. Though did end up with a Portuguese boyfriend for a while. Sadly that didn't last either lol.

I must try and catch up on here more often. Shall have to have a look through, see if any names I recognise.

I hope you are all keeping well?? Xx
