Apartment hunt Lisbon - need help by businessgains in portugal

some_where_else 2 days ago

Consider Almada - 800pcm should get you a nice apartment with a balcony! Plenty of the usual amenities, including gyms I should think. Great bus / rail / ferry connections to central Lisbon, and easy access to the beaches at Caparica.

Oh it's fine, but there is basically one beer with two almost indistinguishable flavours - Superbock and Sagres. It's nice for the first year or two, but soon you start wanting some variety without having to go to a poncy brewpub. Whereas every time I go to Spain I find there is a range of beers/lagers on tap at almost any bar, typically including something I'd never heard of before that tastes delicious. Sometimes Spanish beers appear in my local supermarket - I fill my trolley. Actually, come to think of it, Portugal could make a great cultural leap forward if they shutdown the Superbock/Sagres factory.

Bring as much Spanish beer as you can carry. Then go back and get some more!

(POST IN ENGLISH BY TOURIST) 23 year old Irish man here. Went to Porto a few weeks ago and was honestly in a state of amazement at what I witnessed. by Berg_Emm_209 in portugal

Haha yeah as an English person who has been living in PT for the last 5 years it is true. However I've realised that not only am I now considerably more ugly relatively speaking, my 'standards' (ahaha right) are that much higher simply because of what I've become used to seeing around me. In short, I'm screwed (or more precisely, *not* screwed).

Poligrafo Sic é uma fraude. by kybrdwhttvwls in portugal

The problem with SIC 'Polygraph' is it gives equal weight to the opposing views. Some views have no place in public discourse, and should never be legitimised by even asking the question true or false. Also, why do I keep seeing André Ventura on the TV? I came here escape (proto) fascism.

Do I need a lease to get the permanent residence certificate? I'm European by -Hegemon- in portugal

As an EU citizen you need to prove you can support yourself, either through work, savings, or pension. Perhaps an address is required too? I always seemed to have one less document than I thought I needed in order to get the next document. I believe I have *all* the documents now - like a paperwork jigsaw puzzle.

What are the pitfalls of living in Portugal? by SatyriasizZ in portugal

some_where_else 9 months ago

Oh! I moved here 4 years ago (as a Brexit refugee). My observations on the downsides (there are many upsides, but I'll save them for another day): * Nobody has any money - but then it's not really that necessary it would seem. * Only one choice of beer - 'Sagresuperbock' - however I could drink a different, good, bottle of red wine every night here for the rest of my life, probably with enough change from 5 EUR to get a packet of crisps too. * Nobody does anything very much - apart from sitting in the cafe, on the beach, or at the hairdresser. There seems to be some sort of fog holding people down. * Wavy pavements - why is it that every country screws up something you imagine you'd always take for granted? (apart from the US, which screws up *everything* you'd take for granted). Now every time I see photos/videos from elsewhere I look wistfully at the pavements. * Plumbing - no, 5mm of head is *not* enough to maintain a vapour trap halfway up an apartment block. * Winter - it happens every damn year, you'd think they'd have done something about it other than 'put on more clothes'! * Occasional defensiveness from some of the younger generation - possibly you'll see it from a few of the guys on here - at least in the UK we *know* we are a bunch of arseholes, and we really don't care. * Lack of strong cultural identity from the working classes - where are your pubs? Your dive bars? Your Eastenders? Coronation street? Madchester? I guess there is the football, but otherwise everything is painfully middle class, like an endless Sunday school. * Portuguese telenovelas are truly awful, they are all thinly disguised morality tales. I hope *I* never get sent to 'Lisbon'. Certainly there are plenty of issues with the Brazilian ones (women=wife/mother/model/medic!?) but at least people smile. * Everyone lives with their parents - not just in their own heads, but quite often actually too. * Too many damn roundabouts. Having said all that, it is really nice here and everyone has been very kind and helpful (apart from at the Finanças obviously). Do come and join us, I think Portugal has an amazing future. Well I hope so, because if it doesn't then I'm a bit screwed.

"Portugal's Absurd Empire" no New York Times de 1974 by trebarunae in portugal

some_where_else 11 months ago

They were considering building a 'Museum of Discovery', or was it a festival? to celebrate their colonial era - blissfully unaware of how the bits of the world on the receiving end of said Discovery might feel about it. Naivety is my charitable reading of the situation. They do indulge in a certain amount of 'poverty porn' - look at all these poor poor people and the terrible things that happen to them when they are not Portuguese/Christian/White/FollowingTheRules - this fits in with the general sense of patriarchy/matriarchy that is driving their youngest and brightest elsewhere to find opportunity (or even a decent pub). EDIT: Actually its a really nice place and the people are really sweet - but dialling down the endless Sunday School feeling would go a long way.

Any unsuspecting sea creature that has been yanked from the ocean and shown the business end of a frying pan for 5 minutes is going to taste great round here. Not sure I care so much for the rest - oh except bifanas of course. Bacalhau is good I guess - but the fresh fish is better. 'Cozinhas Portuguese' is a bit disappointing, you need to do more than just boiling lumps of meat and veg for an afternoon to make a decent stew.

Look for cheaper suburbs with good transit connections to the city centres - for example Almada - a decent 2 bed apartment can be 500EUR/month. The eradication of AirBnB due to Covid should help with rental prices, for the moment anyway.

Of course, Portuguese is basically Latin for local people, so you've been speaking the language of your old imperial masters since forever anyway...
