Adventures of Two Expats

In April of 2022 Mike and I packed up our life in California and moved to Portugal. This was the start of our new life of adventure.

We get asked all the time “Why Portugal?”There were many deciding factors on why we picked Portugal but the highlights are:

*Affordable- Mike was able to retire at the age of 56. This never could have been possible if we stayed in California

*Weather- The weather is very similar to California

*Large expat community- It was important to us to be surrounded by all kinds of people from all over the world

*Portugal is very centrally located within Europe. We wanted to be able to use Portugal as a home base to travel with ease.

*Portugal has a reputation of having kind, genuine people.

We are currently living in The Algarve in Portugal and having the time of our lives. Follow us on instagram and Facebook for more Adventures of two Expats stuff. @adventuresoftwoexpats
