When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Lisbon, they replied...

"The weather is generally very good, access to goods and services makes it easy to live here. Covid has impacted everything of course which has made things more difficult. Health care is accessible and affordable. Learning the language has taken longer but English is often understood. There's access to lots of outdoors activities like cycling, hiking, water sports, which is important. There is an old world charm and a lot of history to learn about. Also access to other places in Europe make this location good. Previously lived in several countries in Asia. Europe also closer to the US for trips back- when possible again," said a member in Lisbon, Portugal.

"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the mild climate, beautiful scenery, and vibrant culture of Lisbon. They also enjoy the city's affordability, with its low cost of living and abundance of affordable housing. Additionally, the city's excellent public transportation system makes it easy to get around. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier and bureaucracy challenging. Additionally, the city's nightlife can be quite noisy, making it difficult to get a good night's sleep," remarked another expat who made the move to Lisbon, Portugal.
