Hello Everyone! thanks for this wonderful Forum.
My husband and I relocated to Portugal 2 and 1/2 years ago from USA (he is American, I am German) as early retirees and have opened a small "green" country guesthouse in the beautiful hills of the Sintra Natural Park. We love Portugal and its friendly people. We are very involved in the Slow Food movemnet, organic farming and environmental endeavors.

Hello & welcome to you both.

Ron,

We're in the same area so may well get to bump into each other some time.

Hi My name is Sharon we are retiring to a small village between Nellas and Viseu. My husband is Portuguese and I am Australian. I love the lifestyle in the village and am looking forward to our time there. Nice to make contact through this forum. Very interested in hearing from people who have set up small businesses.

Default Hi there everyone

Hi to all.

My wife and I are looking at relocating to (central) Portugal in the very near future from South Africa, so just like to say hi to all and look forward to possibly getting together in the new year. Any motorbikers out there? we ride a Honda GoldWing and are really looking forward to doing some serious touring of the country

Hi Redwolf

I'm actually a Rooinek but we lived in RSA for about 11 years & came from there to central Portugal (Figueiro Dos Vinhos) about a year ago.

I'm not a biker nowadays but was one for something like 40 odd years. I now restrict myself to four wheels but FWIW, I bought my classic Jeep from RSA over here when I came so might be able to point you in the right directions if you're bringing your Goldwing with you. (BTW, it's a bikers paradise here)

We were in the Lowveld near Nelspruit (actually White River) where are you?

Also, FWIW, it took us a while to settle & we missed Africa but now we've been here a year, we wouldn't go back.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to be of help to you.

Hey there travelling-man,
Many thanks for the reply. Presently in Cape Town, been there about 20 years, but was over in Nelspruit (Ngodwana) in the mid 80's after moving over from SWA (Namibia). Also been in Rhodesia, Zambia and Botswana.
Your offer of advice regarding import of my bike is greatly appreciated, also got a couple of dobermanns coming with us!! SWMBO and myself are hopefully coming over early in the new year, presently working out in Indonesia and hoping to be home by xmas. We have really looked into the area's and like the Tomar region, from what we have seen and read anyway.
I'm glad to hear you are now settled and actually your statement "it took us a while to settle & we missed Africa" has made us feel a lot more at ease with such a move. The roads here in the western cape and eastern transvall for that matter, are all bikers paradise......BUT, its time for a new adventure, so to speak. Family overseas are getting older etc. etc. and CT really is the end of the world, terminus, all change please!!
Enough rambling, just great to get a reply and hopefully definately keep in touch.

Have a great week-end
