We follow one site in particular that is a group forum and it is just loaded with great, inter-active, up-to-date information.
Americans & FriendsPT on Facebook.
There is a wonderful moderator and the quality of information is really high.
There are also “Files” so you can search for almost anything that may have been addressed before and is available in the files: for example: legal info, VISA info, banking, pet travel, shopping items, language learning, recycling, schooling, parties… on and on.
Americans & FriendsPT posts meet ups and other great stuff that’s happening all over.
It’s SUPER. And has helped us a lot.
Another great site (mentioned previously) is Pure Portugal. This is their regular website but they are also on Facebook. There is also Pure Portugal Living the Good Life. Which is a group discussion and posting forum of all kinds of great things.
Tree trimming? Wells? Special cooking ingredients?
Thank you to the internet and to the fine people who take the time to provide a resource like this.
