I love travel and discovering new cultures which led me to also seek work opportunities in order to escape the rainy UK for longer periods of time. This led me to live in Spain, Guadeloupe, France and Australia. I have also travelled in the USA, India and a number of European countries. I didn’t expect it, but while here on holiday, I discovered Portugal is the right country for me and I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a temperate climate, friendly locals and a more relaxed lifestyle with good food and wine.
Although I will soon be entering my 40s and will have been living here for almost a decade, Portugal still ignites my travel bug, I enjoy exploring at every opportunity. In this time I have been to almost of all the regions in Portugal which gives me an overview of the country as a whole, the Portuguese people and the culture in general. If you’re not sure if Portugal or a particular area might be the right fit for you, I am here to share my thoughts and experiences and answer your questions and doubts about areas to live as well as all the aspects and practicalities of moving, settling and integrating into Portugal.
The city of Lisbon itself has many neighbourhoods and each with its own character, (it’s really quite incredible how much it varies for quite a small capital city!) if you would like to specifically focus on Lisbon or any of the surrounding areas, I would be happy to provide an overview to help you decide which neighbourhood/area might be most suitable for your requirements. If you’re simply planning a short trip to Lisbon, I can also help to make a personalised itinerary to help you get the most out of this amazing city and avoid the tourist traps!
There are so many things I would have done differently if only I had known, I know so much now, and I am here to share, support and help smoothen out the moving process for others taking this huge step.
