I donโ€™t go near there in the summer, in some beaches people go to the beach at 7am just to leave a towel to mark the spot
djfjvuh2mo
insane
iihh2mo
Does Porto have a good startup scene? iโ€™m going to head out there next week and look at properties
dlhi2mo
seems portugal is dropping when it comes to innovation at the moment, still top 30 but ..
Portugal has dropped 5 locations and
its major startup ecosystem hubs have
experienced an even a bigger decrease.
Lisbon fell 20 spots to 67th and is now
out of the top 50 list, Porto saw a milder
decline of 14 spots to 130th, and Braga
leaves the top 200 at 214th.

ola! Anyone out there that has personal experience with the golden visa process? Would be very interested in chatting ๐Ÿ™‚
hxekbcdpilzrp1mo
Curious, has anyone navigated the visa process in Portugal without an attorney? Debating the risks of trying it alone versus the decently hefty fee of having an attorney handle it.
qlwl1mo
I donโ€™t know anyone whoโ€™s done it alone. Iโ€™ve contacted a lawyer recently and the prices, inline with the value the visa brings, are minimal. Paying for their professional help seems like a no-brainer?
lyci1mo
Can anyone recommend a large co-working space in Porto? The one Iโ€™m in has only 3 people in it, compared to the ones Iโ€™ve been to in the UK, Thailand or Vietnam itโ€™s tiny here - iโ€™m really looking to tap in to the community to decide if this is a place I really want to live in.
ppkiilc1mo
`inline with the value the visa brings` what value ?
cmfz1mo
0% tax rate on foreign earned income or dividends
hsdrtlt1mo
holy shit
vsmilrc1mo
nice!
mlkt1mo
its fucked the economy up a little, i think
dsmy1mo
the golden visa, iir, youve got to invest in a 500,000 euro home to get it
gyuw1mo
which has pumped the prices of property up way higher than they should be given the rest of the economy
oyzo1mo
so to a certain extent, money you save on taxes gets lost again on rent/property anyway
bbcqdqb1mo
not if u donโ€™t live in a major city
jwaz1mo
yeah thats true - theres some nice stuff in some of the smaller places
zxce1mo
id like to set up a home base in somewhere near the top of this list, thats reasonably priced
suwy1mo
i found lisbon to have too many drug dealers
jkyt1mo
portos shaping up ok
xhipqiu1mo
u donโ€™t like drugs?
fbqd1mo
i dont like being stopped every 10 minutes by someone trying to sell me talc or oregano
ehhhugi1mo
ahhahahah
nbbdgkp1mo
aaaaaaaand, thatโ€™s why I left barcelona and will never live in a big city again
apkg1mo
yeah barcelona was getting silly too, it was ok in 2015 but was totally in the shitter by 2018
awht1mo
lisboa was even worse than barcelona that yet
ocmh1mo
here ive only been stopped twice, in 4 days
jbqo1mo
and they were quite pleasant, considering
plbaqozy1mo
I would like to relocate to Lisbon after Singapore used to be my base )
Do you have by any chance, any recommendation for 1 month place that you really like?
Thanks and may the force will be with you
cripovrsza1mo
Eh I got used to that in the tourist parts of London
iikxmyzclb1mo
Camden particularly
thekuelddq1mo
Theyโ€™re more subtle there though just whispering โ€œweedweedweedcokecokeโ€
pkfmudidjz1mo
Barcelona a few years back had (maybe still does) pretty aggressive prosititutes
pjvatajrey1mo
I had one grab my arm in the middle of the street and start pulling me going โ€œletโ€™s go babyโ€
cmwsjqt1mo
Yeah, that's a classic, they stole 4 phones from me going home from the club totally wasted
jdvityczy1mo
Wow, why did you have 4 phones on you?
cihylhp1mo
uh?
odjbnebl1mo
Oo
fdwxnysdb1mo
You said, they stole 4 phones from you going home drunk ๐Ÿ˜„
kdmcowxt1mo
not at once ๐Ÿ˜„
ayjggjk1mo
I thought that was clear, who would have 4 phones at 6am leaving the club? joyjoy
jmssrlcwebc1mo
a phone thief
latjiuwlx1mo
hahaha
tcfsykcrx1mo
that's why I asked, it was a joke of course!
srecjqron1mo
but still, fool me one
qjvuxjmg1mo
Any recommendations for an accountant?
djgpbmtz1mo
That specialize in tax planning, immigration. In lisbon
ocaibkl1mo
lol, sorry, not meant to be here
guwnsiwk1mo
clean up your act now, xvmqskgs ๐Ÿ˜„
atdndqkg1mo
Whatโ€™s the best co-living in lisbon you were in terms of cost, community, productivity, facilities?
It will be interesting to know the possibilities :)
ygdwpehz1mo
aemwpgesxq I am actually at the Selina, it's overall nice, the facility is decent, have a lot of space to work from, but feels boring and lack of community
ohzrgnodrqm23d
Of course with the caveat of coronavirus not disrupting plans, we are thinking of taking the fam to the Algarve in September. Is there a better location than Carvoeiro for a typically slow-travel mentality with boys 9 and 6 years old, an infant (4 mo)? Walks and beaches are great. Also looking for a place with a pool for the boys as well as some decent day trips (ideally by train, but bus is ok). Prices for less than $100/nt if possible.
vejfrqmltlw23d
Oh, and someone mentioned an airbnb-type site for Portugal that Iโ€™ve already forgotten, but when I saw it before it had fantastic prices. Mind sharing again?
sqnlpre23d
Please do share when you find it, Airbnb and idealista prices are insane
tvlrxaqidzb23d
Is it hard to get to places like that? Seems difficult considering how much is national parks.
iuefeax23d
Nah, that's just Google maps.
Put it on satellite and you'll see many populated places
uyqoqdjpztb23d
why do you like it so much?
zkzthod23d
This is my favourite place
qzyjqbm23d
Check images on google
gayhjls23d
The beaches are super nice, ita super chill but not totally isolated, has some good restaurants
bwwayaztxzt23d
Might be a bit too isolated for our fam for 2+ weeks, but I love knowing about this stuff.
vmpiwxdfitz23d
I think I might have been looking at www.uniplaces.com in the past (month long, near universities like in Lisbon). Not what Iโ€™m looking for now, but still pretty great prices out of the typical American-centric sites.
dpaoiebnxcebc23d
ibxkudspqxnapz just arrived in Faro, #portugal
jmazhwgmgkndv22d
Yeah would be good to know
bfvnwufnmcvn22d
you mean nomadx?
zxwtrkbezvw22d
That wasnโ€™t what I was liking for but looks good. Nothing for my needs in Algarve, but yea. Looks nice.
rajmcmdxuhp21d
Alrighty, so it seems you #portugal folks are getting locked down to some extent. Good luck!
twnckxvwguerg21d
Anyone know best news sources to follow for Portugal news?
hswerrrbaddbl21d
Iโ€™ve got a flight tomorrow but keep hearing all sorts of things about airports from other travelers / hostels owners and I need something concrete
jbsgiwtu20d
I actually run off to the North, at Geres. Staying in a beautiful house near the lake )
hrolbxgbu20d
iqcdrnhjyj20d
you can choose all sources other then "Correio da Manhรฃ"
eoxyzbt20d
they can be quite entertaining though
zrbbmbec20d
Stunning every time!
gkkoyyd20d
yeah, if Iโ€™d go back home Iโ€™d go to a similar place.
are you in a house or coliving/hotel?
wnjlapqo20d
I'm in an AIRBNB house for a month, then let's see how's things are rolling
rfejuqj20d
stay safe
kpehbiiu20d
Thanks man!! same from your side! lockdown in Bali is not easy
iccebzk20d
Iโ€™m ok now that I did my visa run, will be staying here for 2 or 3 months
jguwktxr19d
Awesome!!
esxmczaxl19d
I'm in Rio and wish I was in Portugal right now. ๐Ÿ˜„
uywcrgyly19d
I'm slightly worried about how people will treat gringo's in the wake of this shitstorm. Plus unsurprisingly Bolsonaro is not taking this seriously at all.
sqndbvzus19d
And I'm Hungarian and have spent time in Portugal so I feel more at home. ๐Ÿ˜› Also safer.
uartoaeaptjet19d
I got home eventually, Faro airport is pretty quiet now
udhfxjbzuehgl19d
Heard some murmurings about the possibility of it closing Friday but no source or credibility to that sadly
asmnewbxgqcsfhy19d
I am also in the Algarve currently thinking about going home. I am just afraid that I will be stuck back in Austria for some months. But yeah I guess nobody knows how long it will take for all of this to be overโ€ฆ
dzcovjfnz19d
I think if you're "stuck" in Europe that is infinitely better than being stuck halfway across the world and getting home also shouldn't be as much of an issue. I'm currently unsure, being in Brazil, when I will be able to make it home without paying a fortune. Fingers crossed for May/June
moccnrtcaehdazc19d
Yeah, youโ€™re definitely right there. A friend of mine is also stuck in South America.
I hope youโ€™ll get a flight as soon as possible.
hrdpdfqrq17d
Any area recommendations for staying / getting a place in Lisbon?
Young family, no need for nightlife. Convenience and security mostly โค๏ธ
