A Portophile organizing a Portugal Festival

Now, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only Portophile alive. Beg pardon – what's a Portophile, you ask? Simple, same thing as a Francophile but then for Portugal. Someone who appreciates the portuguese lifestyle, the language, the country, the traditions, the art,...

Renting a car without a credit card – how do you do that?

The only lucky guy I know who can borrow a car from his friends while on vacation here is called Koos. (Sorry people, he's a dutch guy, so he has a dutch name … ) He once was a volunteer here, and to my surprise arrived with a car with a portuguese license plate - but...

You can’t sleep a dent in air

I thought I was smart. After sleeping a dent in 4 mattresses in a few years, I got a bright idea. I thought. Turned out a bit differently than I expected ... I've been sleeping in the same bed for nearly 30 years - but not with the same mattress, of course The bed...

My kingdom for a horse

"Look, there is a horse on the road!" son Broes shouts in surprise, and walks towards the road in the rain to take a look. I follow him, but wait on the sidewalk for the latest news. Too cold and wet. A horse on the road - that doesn't happen every day! A moment later...

Very different C-words for our bubble in 2021

Well… it's really not to rub it in (again), or to secretly gloat, but we really had a nice New Year. I've already wished everyone a Happy New Year via Facebook and Whatsapp, but to be clear: I wish everyone a very good and healthy 2021! https://youtu.be/RuNDj7ZZY_E We...

Christmas greetings from Portugal

Almost Christmas, almost the end of the year How many people have not said so far: it was a strange year. I sincerely hope it wasn't really bad for you - if you've built your own business or lost your job, it's not a weird year, it's a disaster year. I hope it all...
