If anyone has a recommendation for someone who can help do some cleaning and tidying in our house and provide some occasional babysitting....I would be very grateful to receive them. A personal recommendation is better than anything else. We live in Quinta da Beloura, 15 mins from Cascais and 5/10 from Sintra
Hi! We an Australian family with 2 kids (11 and 12) and are living in Lisbon until the end of this year. Although our kids attend school in Australia, we are homeschooling them here as we're not here long enough for them to school locally. Are there any other expats homeschooling their kids who would like to meet up during the week days at the park or to visit a museum etc? Cheers :)
Hi everyone, I was born in Portugal but brought up in England, I am now married with a 4 yr old girl & a 7 yr old boy. I am looking at moving to Portugal in the future but it all seems so daunting! Are there any English speaking jobs around? I speak fluent Portuguese but my mother tongue is English, my husband speaks only English though and very teeny amount of Portuguese. Im not worried about the kids, but I am worried about us & jobs. I would love to hear from other people what their experiences were, finding a job in Portugal? Thanks
Hi We have just been informed that the Picnic Chair of the Welcome to Summer Picnic for Americans in Portugal has re-scheduled the event to Friday.

We're looking for some help regarding International schools in Lisbon for our 13 yr old. Can we find a list of schools somewhere? Additionally, our child is very interested in several sports including track. Would there be schools having this as an activity?... for anyone with a child in once of the schools, of course.
Hi everybody, I was wondering if any of you would be willing to sell some of your children's books that you do not use anymore? My baby needs English books. I find online shopping very inconvenient as the shipping & handling fees are SO high for delivery to Portugal. Please let me know. Thanks!
My husband and I will be moving to Estoril in a few months due to his job. We're excited to be moving to Portugal but also nervous as we've just discovered we'll be having a baby in late September. Are there any mums who can tell me the best ob docs and hospitals for giving birth? I've thought about coming back to Vancouver to have our baby, but want to explore what others have to share first. I'm hopful and looking forward to any replies.
