I am considering moving to a country outside the USA. In reviewing numerous blogs and their experiences, it's for sure that it's biting off a huge chunk to ever build or even renovate.

Home is where the heart is. Giving up sunny South Africa was not easy going. Now living in Tondela with the most friendly and helpful community, I can't help but just smile and be at peace. Growing my own vegetables for the first time and relying on "cherades" (with a lot of laughs) to hopefully be understood. Learning Portuguese, with loads of fun in the pronunciation differences, from one person to the next. Oh well, its only a year down the line, I'll master it one day. I would like to know if there are any arts and crafts clubs in Tondela, or any ladies getting together to share crafts and ideas.
