They also offer their advice as to things to keep in mind if you are planning the same kind of adventure, that is a life of travel. It was really nice to get the perspective of real life experience in the region as that is one of the places that we have contemplated moving to ourselves. It’s obvious from the pictures how beautiful that region of Portugal is and l am sure it made for an easy decision. Portugal continues to be, along with Spain a destination for expats from all over the world. The weather and the warmth of the people is often spoken about by everyone.
