  • Description

    Well, I managed, despite last minute delays, disasters and dramas, to finally make it back to Portugal before the withdrawal agreement kicked in. I arrived at a workaway in Alentejo in December and am enjoying the peace and tranquility and hard also the hard work.

    Hi, I'm Pete. Im 53, single and looking to start a new life in Portugal.

    I spent 25 years as an estate agent and as a mortgage broker/financial adviser, living what I thought was a successful life. But, and I guess this is not news to you guys that left the rat race behind and moved to Portugal years ago, I didn't make me happy.

    So, I'm here, on my own 'Road to nowhere'. Before I arrived I had a loose plan. Look for the place to live, investigate work and business opportunities and while doing so meet some great people and get fitter by the Workaway technique while gaining knowledge of different areas and others experiencies.
