An Award for Moving to Portugal

We may earn commission from companies mentioned on this blog, however our praise cannot be bought!

It’s always nice to start the year with an award and I am happy to announce that Moving to Portugal has been awarded with an ABC award from the Thought Palette site. ABC means “Awesome Blog Content!” I am always flattered when people enjoy the blog and it makes the hours dedicated to it seem worthwhile.

As part of the ABC theme, Alyson from Thought Palette suggests the winners create their own “ABC” post about themselves. The idea seemed rather fun to me, so here’s mine!

Apple Mac















Paradise Garage









Young at heart


So there you have it – I may have revealed a few things you didn’t know about me!

That’s it for this week, but if you want to read more I am continuing my theme of “at this time in…..” At this time in 2011 I looked back over the time since I moved here and provided links back to some vintage posts about the time before we moved to Portugal and our initial arrival. It’s a great starting point for those who haven’t been reading the blog for long. You can find the “Living in Portugal – a recap” post here.

    You may be interested to know that I have now set up a Facebook group for all bloggers who have been given the ABC Award – a place for you to meet new bloggers, and share and support each other. You can join the group here:

    Please also let any other bloggers, that you know have been given the award, know about this group too – then we can all ‘spread the word’

    I have also set up a Facebook page – the ABC Award – where you can now add links to all of your blog posts and writing – share your work with a new audience, gain new readers, and find out what other ABC Award bloggers are writing about.
