Following the success of our first "Expat Focus Forum Lunch" in May, our latest "get together" was held on the 12th September at “O Branco” a cosy Portuguese restaurant in Carvoeiro (Algarve). Away from the tourist area this little restaurant proved to be a real “find” by one of our members who kindly organized the event. The food was simple, delicious traditional Portuguese cuisine, and at just €7 per person - outstanding value! We enjoyed: bread and olives; the dish of the day (sardines or pork); dessert; a jug of house wine; beer or a soft drink; coffee and a "digestivo" of either port or brandy!
It was great to meet other forum members, of various nationalities, to discuss a variety of forum topics face-to-face. We also exchanged ideas and shared our experiences of everyday life in Portugal. New friendships were formed and a good time was had by all. By the end of the meal there were some very “merry” folk looking forward to our next get together in December!
Details of December’s lunch will be posted on the What's On in Portugal forum closer to the event…I hope you will join us?
In the meantime, our next event will be the Expat Focus monthly Ladies Coffee Morning - we look forward to welcoming new members!
Thanks to everyone who supported the event and for those who were unable to join us on this occasion, I hope we will see you in December.
