My Personal A to Z of Portugal

What My Personal A to Z of Portugal is all about

In 2012, I began working on a series of blog posts, each based on a letter of the alphabet, to create a personal A to Z of Portugal. The posts are about aspects of living and travelling in Portugal that I feel strongly about, one way or another, each based on a letter of the alphabet, for example, ‘A is for Alva, the river Alva‘.

Some will be about things I adore or find amusing or interesting, others are about irritations and frustrations.

If you’ve moved to Portugal, or are thinking of relocating, they might give you some insights into expat life in Portugal.

    Hello Julie,
    All yours posts are a lot helpful. I am an intern student from India living at Cantanhede (Centro region). I need some few details
    1) about shopping card “loyalty card” for continente store. Everything is in Portuguese in their website so please help me out. I opt for it since its a six month stay here.
    2) And suggest me some good restraunts in Cantanhede Centro Region (if any, you might know).
    That’s all thank you.

    Thank you for spreading the message. We should be so proud of our country’s legacy, and yet we tend to overlook it and blame anything else but OURSELVES. Your blog is, in a kind of way, the portuguese version of Bill Bryson’s ‘Mother Tongue’. Well done!
