I just moved from Costa da Caparica to Aveiro and am really enjoying it.

Costa is very nice in the summer months but it becomes a ghost town in the winter.

There are just a few cafés, and in winter you might be the only customer.

Costa has population 13,000 and Aveiro 80,000

I love to cook, but couldn't get many of the herbs, spices and vegetables etc. in Costa, but had to order them online.

The building that I lived in had twelve apartments but only two were occupied for 5 months.

There was little chance of practicing my Portuguese except at an almost empty bar so I searched for an online course.

I found one and am using it everyday. It's not obvious that there's a trial but there is one.

The guy that sells the program is a real straight shooter and his site and programs are full of good stuff.

I think his site and his programs provide too much information for free.

But that's his business, and not mine, or ours ;-)

I would recommend Aveiro to anyone that would like a small city: not a town or a village, and not huge like Lisbon.

I like Nazaré a lot and did think of moving there, but it's small and would be similar to Costa in the winter, but colder.

That's good not enamoured with Portuguese Chinese food, some excellent fish restaurants as well
I'm a very good cook and have only eaten in restaurants a few times since I've been here.

I found the Portuguese food very bland, but that might be just me, or bad luck with the restaurants.

Nearly all these are mine http://goo.gl/3d7JY3 It's a link to my Facebook album.
