    Hello all,

    I will be moving to Lisbon mid-January and looking to meet people who speak English, French, Spanish and German.

    I'm aware it's pretty early, but if anyone knows of any jobs going that require multiple languages, I would appreciate it.

    Hope to meet some of you in the new year. :)

    Hi folks,
    I am just introducing myself ,
    I am a semi retired skilled trades-an woman electrical & mechanical engineer from Tasmania Australia.

    I was born in Ireland but left there when i was a young child.

    I have been in Portugal for 6 weeks. I spend 1 month in the Algarve and have been in Porto now for 2 weeks. I bought L/H drive a car in UK and made the ling road trip here.

    Regretfully i will be selling my car and will have to return to Au’s early due to family illness.

    I had considered buying and old modest priced property here in Portugal and moving here but the climate is a bit too warm for me in summer. I have recently started to more so consider the south coast of England as a place to later settle i am undecided as yet,

    Kind regards to all

    Hello @Skilledhanslady and welcome to EasyEpat.com
    With global warming, all southern Europe is going to be warmer and warmer with more frequent heatwaves, so that's indeed something to consider.
    Devon (and Cornwall, but that's the extreme west coast of England) have an excellent reputation that you might want to consider :)
    Best of luck in your search and see you soon on the forums.

    Thank you Cyril[ yes i am considering those area’s if England in due course considering that England is so much more expensive than Portugal i will have to return back to work in Australia until the inevitable global recession causes significant drop in property prices.

    For the present i will simply enjoy the rest of my stay in lovely Porto, at least until my car & excess belongings are sold.

    Kind regards
