The truth about why we chose Portugal. There were many reasons why we thought moving to Portugal was the best place to live for a digital nomad lifestyle.
The internet is fast and affordable, the cost of living in Portugal is lower than the UK, we are much closer to our family and there is so much beauty to see outdoors for free. These are just a few of the reasons, in this video we cover all the things that made us feel that Portugal was the best choice for us at this point in our lives.
Uncle Omar and Tia Jael came to spend a week with us here on the Silver coast and we wanted to show them Story’s favourite places. Starting on the beaches near to Peniche, exploring Baleal and then back home for a barbecue on our terrace in Caldas Da Rainha.
The weather wasn’t the best but we still went out everyday and found a really cool hike in Sao martinha do Porto overlooking a little lighthouse.
We even took a little trip back up to central Portugal to see the Batalha Monastery which was absolutely epic and a great place to talk about how we feel about choosing to raise our daughter in Portugal.
