We’ve been thrilled by the response from both residents and expats alike. Often when you talk about moving abroad, people think it’s a huge and scary leap. Well, in some ways it can be, but for us, it was a natural progression. From our extensive travels, we’ve seen some of the most wonderful places in the world. But when we got to Portugal, it had the right combination of welcoming people, incredible culture, fabulous food, and inviting landscape that it felt like home. We know others will feel the same way, so we wanted to help them to make the move if that’s what they see in their future.

You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers
Here are the most common questions we’ve been asked about 101 Tips For Moving To Portugal (And Once You Arrive):
1. What is our moving to Portugal ebook?
It’s a concise and practical ebook that shares our very best personal tips, insights, and resources gained from our own experience moving from the United States to Portugal.
2. What inspired us to write our ebook?
When we started thinking about writing an ebook, we wanted to create something that would be helpful and interesting for our readers. We know that there’s a lot of conflicting information out there. So we wanted to share our own personal experiences along with tips and resources we found invaluable. We were inspired by people who told us that they would love to make such a move, but it felt overwhelming and out of reach for them. It seemed natural to us to share our experiences and tips that led us to the wonderful new life in Portugal we dreamed about.
Another thing that inspired us was the reality that once we arrived, we still had much to do. Just because you make the move doesn’t mean you’re done. There’s a lot you need to know about adjusting to a new home, making friends, and finding your way in Portugal. think that can only really be understood by people like us who have done it.
We wished that we had more of these tips and insights available to us when we were moving to Portugal. So we decided to write an ebook and share it with others.
3. What does it teach readers?
Our ebook teaches readers who are thinking about moving to Portugal that it’s something that can be done. There is a lot of preparation, and plenty of logistics to address. But we provide examples from our own experience, tips to make things easier, and resources that we feel are reliable and trustworthy.
One of the things we thought was important was that people considering relocation really go through the emotional homework of decision-making before they upheave their life and move to another country. There are a lot of people who impulsively buy a house or sell everything they own and just move. While that might work for some, we think it’s an unnecessarily risky approach. We took our time so that when we made our decision, we had considered all the possibilities and knew that moving to Portugal was right for us.
Our goal is to help others who are standing where we once were with a step-by-step process to think through, plan, and decide if relocation is right for them. Then, if they decide that it is, help them, like a reliable experienced friend, to make their move go as smoothly as possible and make the most of their new life in Portugal.

Portugal is a safe, friendly, temperate, peaceful, and relatively affordable country.

For some people, this is the scariest part of moving. They worry that they won’t make friends, won’t fit in, or won’t be able to transition to a place that feels like a home. We had those concerns too but overcame them quickly through a few simple methods that anyone can use. The move doesn’t end when the boxes are unpacked.
