In four days, we will get on a plane and head back to the states after an amazing three-month journey. This blog, however, will continue! We’ve seen so many places, and more than I had the time to write about so, even while in the states, I will continue to post: Aix-en-Provence, Nimes, Arles, Valencia, Toledo, Madrid, and Cordoba… just to mention a few. And, we plan on returning to Europe next Spring, so this blog will be ongoing. It’s been such a pleasure, and such an important part of the trip . . . getting to share our journey with you.
We are, however, going to take a little time off over the holidays. This is our last post until we resume on Friday, January 13th. We are excited to spend time with our family and friends and to catch up on what we’ve missed while we’ve been away. I will continue to post images and little blurbs on my Facebook page as I typically do, and, if you’re signed up for the blog you will receive a notice when our January 13th post is live. If you’re reading this and are not yet signed up to receive notices, please click here.
We will be returning to Europe for another extended visit in the Spring. Our first stop will be Portugal where we plan to stay for three months. We’ve talked with so many people who are thinking about expatriating to Portugal that we thought we’d act as scouts and check out the more popular spots like Lisbon, Porto, Lagos, Faro, Cascais, Coimbra, Braga, and Aveiro. We will be writing about our impressions of each place and will also be including some very practical aspects of what it’s like for day-in-and-day-out living.
If, like so many folks these days, you are thinking about moving to Portugal and have a place in mind, please let us know, and we will try to make it there and let you know what we think! Think of us as your Expatriate Scouts. This should be fun.
So . . . we will talk again in a month. But, before I leave you, I just want to say, THANK YOU! We are both grateful for your support and encouragement in following our journey. Your responses to our travels and to this blog have far exceeded any expectations we had. We look forward to our continued sharing and conversations.
Much love to you all. Happy, Happy, and Merry, Merry. May your holidays be filled with joy and love.
