Moving home is always a “big deal” even if you are really looking forward to it, as we hope you are. However, it may be that you are moving, not because you want to but because circumstances mean that you have to, and that can add to the stress. 
If you are thinking of moving to Portugal there are some things that you need to know, not the least of which is that the country wants immigrants. That’s right, you are welcome. Portugal’s workforce was seriously depleted between 2011 and 2016 due to emigration, and now the government is doing everything possible to bring people back in. 
The Algarve in Portugal is a favourite destination for many holidaymakers from the UK, and with good reason. Apart from any other considerations, the climate is great, with over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, and cooling ocean breezes which reduce the heat of summer to a comfortable level. The Algarve is also easy to reach from the UK, Faro being just a two-and-a-half-hour flight. There is also a modern, fast motorway network when you arrive. 
Moving house anywhere is known to be one of the most stressful experiences that most people ever have, yet the average person moves house every seven years. If you have moved before, even if it is only within the same town, you will know how stressful it is, but it is doubly so when you are moving to a far part of the UK from where you live, where you don’t know anyone. It is even more so if you are moving abroad, especially to a country where they speak a different language. Not only are you moving to somewhere strange, but you have to learn another language as well.
