The Bacalhau Chronicles

Portugal is home to the beloved bacalhau, or saltcod. Allegedly, there are 365 different recipes for the dish: one for each day of the year. This American girl is fixin' to find out! In the meantime, I try out other Portuguese classic dishes and fend off occasional homesickness by making American comfort foods from scratch.

Life is an open blog

Originally from London, I met my husband whilst on holiday in Portugal 30 odd years ago and have lived here ever since. When I reached 50, it seems I became a bit of an old rambler. Instead of inteligent conversation, I now ramble on about nothing. A blog seems like a good place to do this without boring the pants off everyone within earshot. As it's a blog, it's ok to yawn and move on to the next one, leaving me to my own devices.

the story of Casa Azul

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.

We Love Moses

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.

Portuguese Wind

Long long ago there was a little girl born. She loved her home and the urge to travel was never big. Later, when she grew up she decided to see the world (accomplished only in a tiny bit) and suddenly *boom*. The little - big girl decided to find her place in the world. Create a little home with no rush, with sun, laid back people and awesome food - Portugal.

Once upon a time there was a Canadian girl named Tango. She was on the path to study English Literature and Art History but a girlís gotta eat, so she became an accountant. She moved from Calgary to Vancouver and, for the next ten years, she worked as a financial analyst for startups in the technology industry. She wore stilettos and drank a lot of martinis. Then Tango met Penfold. A whirlwind romance in the blogosphere ensued and soon they were snogging in Ireland, Portugal, Sri Lanka, England, Canada, and the United States. After careful analysis (she is an accountant, after all) Tango drained her martini glass, gave her stilettos to a needy tramp and moved to the hills of Portugal. This is her story.

Emma's house in Portugal

A blog about buying a ruin and building a house in Portugal plus food, architecture, design, travel and animals. I didnít 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.
