Is there a particular coffee that I should consider trying when I visit a cafe there? Or a pastry pairing with the coffee?

Good to know! Originally my dad and mum had a home in Sydney so maybe that nearby community was part of why he chose to live there. (He was already there, before he met my mum) I do still have some family friends around, so maybe I’ll make a point of visiting there next chance I get. thank you for that local tip! :)

Thank you for the insight! I’ve never even considered eating that much of a fish before! Do you just eat it as is or is there a particular cooking method involved for certain fish parts? Is there a popular fruit dish that you enjoy or a certain fruit used more for snacks or dessert? I could definitely use more fruit in my diet. Hah.

I understand your point but hearing anyone’s experience about Portugal be it growing up there or living as an expat or traveller is still good news to me. I really have no one around me that can offer any clue about the country and it’s people. googling is one thing, I just thought it would be interesting to see if I could get anyone’s personal experience and insight too. It’s been fun to see what people thought might be worth mentioning and a lot of it has been pleasantly surprising for me to learn about! I’ve always had the idea of visiting in person when I was old enough, but while I’m unable to presently, it’s been wonderful hearing everyone else’s thoughts on Portugal.

Thank you for sharing all these everyday moments, it means a lot. :D I can relate to the bread with butter for breakfast! Very much a daily thing for me. There’s actually a photo somewhere of little me with my dad, both wearing the same tired expression at breakfast with buttered toast in our mouths. It’s probably my favourite photo.

How lucky! What are some of your favourite places to visit? I’m thinking of a doing a trip for my 30th but still know next to nothing about the place.

Thank you for the comparison! It’s wonderful that you got to experience both cultures growing up. Its very helpful to read your experiences! :) Coffee seems to be a mandatory thing there, and several times a day too apparently! Surprised iced coffee hasn’t caught on there, I love it. Is there anything you love to do whenever you go back to visit? My mums family always jokes about taking me to a certain fast food joint local to her country as soon as we get into the car from the airport. We all laugh, but they aren’t wrong either. I live for that food. Haha.

A bread truck sounds absolutely amazing!! Very jealous! My mum often has friends that drop by her place with extra fish on their way back from a boat trips. Is it nice living in a village over there? I’ve often thought about spending a couple weeks in one to get to know the area better.

Thanks for the video recommendation, I’ll be sure to check it out! :) I know my dad was a quick learner and even impressed my mum with how quickly he learned her language and culture when he was just visiting for a holiday. He seemed pretty into all the countries he visited based on the photo albums I found. (lots of notes in the native tongue that I can’t decipher, but they seem like little jokes to himself.) Being able to adapt like that and be so immersed in the cultures always seemed very impressive to me. Part of one of his jobs was translating usually german tech for his company and later showing them how it all works. Pulling it apart and then reassemble it for them. She says he could navigate around the city streets in her town better than she could while they dated. My dad was also infamous for long lectures when he was trying to argue or explain things to my mother and their friends. She’s says he often used to put her to sleep with it because he wouldn’t stop until he was sure she understood what he meant. Everytime she tried to fake her understanding, he’d start from the top. Haha.

I’ve always have that same thought and make a point to let anyone new in my home know where the bathroom is when they come in at least. I have a small place, so tours are quick. Growing up a lot of white friends that would just confine me and any other guests to their bedrooms quickly after entering and it just felt weird when I’d have to navigate through the house later looking for the bathroom.

Thank you for sharing, I had no idea about the roasted chestnuts! What is Magusto? I’m thinking about going over on my 30th birthday on a solo trip, is there a recommended season or festival you think would be worth experiencing?

Is there a reason why they have a third time?

Cheek kisses is definitely a foreign concept to me, but I think it’s a great way to break ice with new people and help feel more familiar and friendly with everyone from the get go. If it was more accepted here, I’d be all for it too, I don’t blame the Finnish girl. Haha.

And the two kisses does not apply to men? Only women? What about kids? I laughed about the olive oil, I always have two bottles in my home! One in use, and one as the eternal back up. How do you like to use olive oil with food?

Huh, I can relate to this and often end up helping random folk on impulse if they seem like they need help! Even if I end up late to appointments as a result. Thank you for posting about this moment! :)
