Now we've done it... We sold our house and everything we own and we're headed off to Portugal. Why? I guess the better question is why not? We're ready to stop the madness and enjoy a simpler life with our 11 year old son. Join us on our adventures as we learn about our new home in Portugal!

My day to day experiences of life as an ex-pat English teacher in Lisbon.
A surfer stuck in the mountains of Portugal. Proudly sporting a ridiculous orange surfboard I marched boldly from the surf shop. Stopping briefly to hand my spectacles to a passer-by I stumbled blindly into the sea...
Canadian photographer at large in Portugal, on 4th expat adventure. A daily blog since 2002, gailatlarge.com has a bit of something for everyone: photos, stories, videos, and resources. Observations from more than 23 years of independent travel in 35 countries.
When I sold everything and left the U.S.A. I wanted to change myself. A life in a new country, climate and culture. Starting eating local food in season, throw off the 2 car garage pool lifestyle that was slowly killing me. After looking at all the E.U. countries, Portugal seemed to be the best fit, so far it is just the right size. Diagnosed bipolar a year before I left the States was a revelation I always knew I was different. Anywhere I am is a challenge. Here in Portugal I have been at my best and my worst. I don%u2019t have my close friendships of many years, but having access to good medical care at low cost is a revelation after the high costs of healthcare, mental health care in particular that was not helping me much in the States. The fresh local food that is easily available at low cost means I eat fresh fish, fruit and vegetables daily. The diabetes that traveled over with me and some 80 extra pounds have disappeared, my move to Portugal has saved my life. Together with The Citizen (aka Kevin 12 String), my best friend, lover and fellow adventurer, we have headed south for more sun and beaches to Lagos, on the southern coast. Now with a two kittens and my new therapist, we are still discovering new ways of living. The citizen has a talent for growing tomatoes and I still try to learn Portuguese. Each week there is another beach we can get to on the bus that stops right by our casa. Will I be here for the rest of my life? I believe that life happens when you stop making plans. I%u2019ll let you know. Bejinhos and Travel Well

We found Casa Azul one wet Monday morning in May 2009. It was just what we were after - a decrepit farmhouse in the depths of Central Portugal. Now restored, this is the story of its, and our, continuing renaissance.
The blog covers aspects of Lisbon (and Portugal) from a local’s perpective, highlighting things that may be overlooked during a quick visit and featuring others that should not be missed. It also covers upcoming events and occasionally offers personal reviews of services in the city.
Blogging the stories of our family life on a yoga retreat in the magical village and valleys of Amieira, Central Portugal. Everyday we are tending this beautiful land and its stone dwellings in our journey towards self sufficiency. Moses is the Portuguese name of this place, meaning many mill stones. And, providently, is also the name of our beloved golden retriever, without whom, we'd never have found it. We love you Moses.
The life and trials of our family's move from Lincolnshire, England to Lagos, Portugal
In March 2013 my parents retired, they put their two dogs in the back of the car and drove to Portugal to begin their new life. This blog is about their home in Central Portugal, their day-to-day life and my own adventures.
A blog about buying a ruin and building a house in Portugal plus food, architecture, design, travel and animals. I didn’t come to Portugal looking for a house, but I think the houses came looking for me. I liked Portugal right away. The people are so laid back and unpretentious, the coffee and pastries are to die for, and the architecture is amazing. Lisbon and Porto, and many of the smaller towns are extraordinarily grand but so many of the richly decorated buildings are neglected and falling down.
