About me: I’m Carol – an American living in Portugal with my husband, Paul. I’m a freelance marketer and writer and the online publisher of Our Portugal Journey. Paul is a digital artist (and awesome life partner!).
Over the last few years, many friends, family members, co-workers, acquaintances, and social media followers have asked us a variety of questions as to why we ultimately decided to move to Portugal. We hope this website will answer many questions Americans and others have about moving to and living in Portugal – whether it is for retirement (or early retirement), work, adventure, to expose your family to different cultures, or just because you’re curious. We also want to cover some of the places and people we discover along the way (and not just the touristy areas).
The content is honest, well-researched and detailed information about the experiences, challenges, and discoveries with moving to, and living in Portugal. Many of the topics come from the questions we’ve been asked. Hope you enjoy it!
