If you’ve been following my health and work journey in Portugal then you know, we took a bold step and moved to the country two years ago, sight unseen. It sounds outrageous, be we were ready for a change; looking for a slower paced, healthier lifestyle and a safe country in which to raise our son.

We found both in Portugal – a lifestyle that’s inherently healthy (just by the nature of Portuguese culture) and a country ranked #4 in safety (the United States is ranked #122 in safety to give you some context).

I’m sure you’ve seen all the press the past 2-3 years on Portugal being a paradise for retirees, digital nomads, crypto enthusiasts, remote workers and families to move to…and maybe you’ve been wondering if this rosy picture is true or if Portugal is just the latest darling of the media and expat services; desperate to pounce on its newfound fame.

Well, I’m doing a presentation for the upcoming online summit for moving to Portugal called, The Portugal Plan, created by one of our own community members, Allison Baxley.

Allison has worked tirelessly to put together a phenomenal collection of presentations to provide you with incredibly valuable resources for moving to Portugal.

I will be talking about the myths and realities of living in Portugal and I’ll hope you’ll tune in.

It’s an honest look at living in Portugal which goes beyond the media hype and dives into the great, the wonderful, the so-so, and the not-so-fun realities of moving overseas, daily life in Portugal, and what it is like to live, work, and raise a child in a new country (especially when you don’t know the language) and how to navigate the path to citizenship.

I’ll be digging into the myths perpetuated by the media, relocation and investment companies, and expat forums while giving you concrete advice for moving to this magnificent country.
