Smile Hello folks

Hi all, Just joined today. I'm retired, and I'm spending half the year in Tavira, Portugal. Looking forward to picking up lots of good advice from the forum.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary

Lucky you. Liked Tavira and the environs very much. Is there much of an expat community there these days?

Last in Tavira in 2001 but spent a lot of time there in 90 and was about to settle in Lisbon when was required unexpectly to move to France.

Have you just moved there to live half a year or has this been an ongoing thing?

Many happy times in Tavira anyhow.

Hello...welcome to BE.

I see you have already found your way into the Portugal and Europe forums...well done. We have a great crowd of people posting in those forums...I'm sure you'll enjoy being part of our cyber community of expats.

If you have any problems finding your way around the many BE forums please contact one of our concierge members...they will be pleased to point you in the right direction if need be. You can find a list of their names at the bottom right hand side of this page.

If you have any problems or concerns please contact the forum mod...the mod for Portugal is Mitzyboy but if he isn't around any mod or admin will be pleased to help.

Please give me a shout if you there is anything I can help you with.

Hi Troubador, Not so many ex-Pats in the Eastern Algarve as in the West. Albufeira and environs is getting a bit like 'little Britain' in more ways than one these days, although I haven't actually seen Vicky Pollard there yet. (Seen some close relatives though). I like this part of the coast because its still relatively undeveloped - I say relatively - and Tavira itself is a conservation town with lots of safeguards on what can be done to it, such as no developments over 4 stories high, which keeps the tower blocks out. People who holiday here tend to be families or older couples, and the town is very popular with the French, which keeps the restaurants on their toes I think. My wife and I are here from May to November, then back to UK for Christmas/New Year/ Easter with family. It suits us very well.
Best Wishes, and thanks to all for your warm welcome. Mike Mac.

Hi Baked Bean, Never visited Penang, though I did spend my teenage years in the 60's in Singapore at the RAF Grammar School at Changi. Happy days! My wife and I now spend from May to November here on the Algarve, then back to UK for Christmas/New Year/Easter with family. It suits us very well.
Best Wishes. Mike Mac.
