About

Living the Portugal Dream is by estrangeiros, for estrangeiros … in other words, it is a site for foreigners living in or thinking of moving to Portugal, by foreigners living in Portugal. The site aims to capture the joys (and pitfalls!) of moving to and living in Portugal, and the rich diversity found in the lives of those people who have made the transition.

All articles, videos and audio on the site has been contributed by members of the estrangeiro community in Portugal. If you would like to contribute to the site, please submit an article here.

The site was built and is maintained by Alison Thompson. Alison followed her heart and moved to Portugal in February 2019. While life here was wonderful in so many ways, she found herself needing a project to get her teeth into …. and this is it!
