Moving home is known to be one of the most stressful things that we ever do, and on average we move seven times in a lifetime. No matter how often or how little you move home, when you do there are a gazillion and one things that have to be taken care of. It is quite enough if you are moving across town. If you are moving to a different part of the UK that can be more difficult because you are leaving friends and family behind and going to somewhere where you may know nobody. 
However many times you may have moved home before, the next move is just as scary as the first one ever was. You are in a sense, venturing into the unknown, even if you are only moving across town. If you are moving to another country, which many people do, it can be even scarier because you are switching to another culture. Even if you move to an English-speaking country like Canada, New Zealand, Australia, or the US, they still do things differently from the way that we do, so there is a lot to learn. 
If you are thinking of moving to Portugal, you are not alone. Many people who have been to Portugal for a holiday become instantly enchanted by the relaxed way of life, the relatively cheap cost of living, the sun, and in some cases the golf courses. Of course, having mentioned the sun, while there is a lot of it, in December and January the temperature in central and northern Portugal can go below freezing, and even the Algarve has been known to have a drop of snow. Nonetheless, according to Live And Invest Overseas, Portugal, and especially the Algarve, was the No 1 best place in the world to retire in 2020. 
If you are moving to France, no doubt many of your friends will say that it’s no big deal. After all, it’s only 20 miles across the Channel and you’re there. It’s not as if you are moving to Australia or something.
