Living in Portugal

Winds of Change


‘sometimes in the winds of change – we find our true direction’

A lot has happened during the last few months and I would like to share it with you. Today feels like a good moment to reflect on the changes we have been through and the direction we are going in.


Be where you are


‘driving from holland to portugal’

A few weeks ago we were driving from the Netherlands back to Portugal. We had some wonderful weeks with friends and family. It felt so good to be back and to see everyone again after a long time.

‘smile, breathe and go slowly.’

‘good things take time’

It’s been two months since we bought a one-way ticket to Portugal. A lot has happened since then: we visited many properties, seen different regions, experienced all kinds of ups and downs and it feels like one big adventure.




‘take your dreams seriously’

As I am starting to write on this blog post I am sitting on our veranda with a stunning view of the river and the mountains. The sun is shining and we just did another hike this morning.
