I'm an american currently living in germany. i work as a freelance designer and software developer. getting a live/work visa for germany was relatively easy, does anyone know how it might compare in portugal?
i don't speak portugese, but i did study spanish for a few years and hope that it will come back quickly as the languages are similar. i'd certainly be interested in taking some classes in the language.
what i'd like to do is spend the winter there, probably around lisbon, and do some exploring to see if it's a good place for me. (was also considering living in australia, but i'm leaning towards staying in europe as the immigration fees are quite high in oz and there is a lot more for me to explore in europe). since i work through the net i can live pretty much anywhere and might as well be in the sun!!
anyway, anyone who could give me some advice, would be awesome. i'm going to be in lisbon for a week or so on the 8th to do some surfing & would be really happy to meet up and get a beer or coffee with anyone living there who would be so kind as to give me some tips
a bazillion thanks,
