I fell in love with the historic center of Oeiras. It is sooo charming! But most of the broader Oeiras "concelho" - sadly, not so much.

I know a lot of people love Parede. We would seriously look into living there if it weren't too far from the teen's school & volleyball practices. You guys might check it out on your next adventure!

Hi Amy and Scott-

I love hearing about these side trips! A lovely (vicarious) excursion for me from my sofa on a cold January night. The sunshine is nice.... something I vaguely remember!

Hi Amy and Scott! I stumbled upon your substack while searching for news from my home country, Portugal! I live in Ireland now, since 2012!

I've found it quite interesting to read your impressions of living in Lisbon and your visits to other cities. May I recommend you visit Aveiro next? It's a lovely city, that we call our Portuguese Venezia! It's where I went to college and I think it would be a lovely option to settle and live in 🙂 wishing you all the best!

Comparison is good. Lunch looks divine!

Amy, I'd love to see photos of your Nativity visit and hear your impressions.
