Moved to Portugal: 2017
From: London and Devon, UK
Currently lives: São Martinho do Porto, Leiria District
Family man in my fifties with a passion for Portugal that includes a daily breakfast show and a weekly webinar with Expats Portugal!
My wife Louisa (‘Mrs M’) and I have three children and our youngest was born here. We have experienced many aspects of life in this endlessly fascinating and delightful country – the nitty-gritty of finding somewhere to live, access to healthcare, opening bank and utility accounts, as well as dealing with the Portuguese administration and bureaucracy.
We have had a lot of fun travelling and living all around the country and have found ‘home’ somewhere that meets our needs on Portugal’s Silver Coast, with a great balance of things to do and space to grow kids and food.
Parent, business owners, host of weekly meetup and prolific commentator on expat life in Portugal
