Brexit and Beyond: Rachel's Recollections of Portugal

Welcome back to 'Let's Move to Portugal.' This week, we're navigating the international landscape of a post-Brexit Europe with our special guest, Rachel. Originally from London, Rachel embarked on the journey of moving abroad and found herself calling the charming streets of Lisbon, Portugal her new home right after Brexit.

In this episode, Rachel takes us through her experiences as an expat in Portugal, shedding light on the nuances of Portuguese culture, lifestyle changes, and the unique charm that Portugal offers. However, her journey didn't end there. Rachel's since returned to the United Kingdom and offers us a dual perspective on life in both the EU and the UK in the current climate.

We delve into the complexities of international relocation, discussing everything from cross-cultural insights to lifestyle differences, and how Brexit has influenced life for Brits living abroad. This episode is not just about Rachel's personal journey. It's about the broader narrative of expatriate adjustment, the trials, and tribulations of immigration and emigration, and a deep dive into the realities of international living.

Whether you're considering moving abroad or simply interested in the cultural differences between Portugal and the United Kingdom, this episode is a trove of information. From Lisbon to London, Rachel's journey is a testament to the daring spirit of adventure and the constant human endeavor to explore new horizons.

Tune in to Episode 26 of 'Let's Move to Portugal,' as we explore the realities of post-Brexit European travel, British and Portuguese culture, and what it truly means to uproot one's life to a whole new country. Join us in this fascinating discussion that covers not just countries and cultures, but also the personal experiences that shape our perception of the world around us.
