Moving is an inherent characteristic of humanity since ancient times; people needed to follow food supply, a better climate, curiosity and opportunities. However, moving nowadays is more complicated and easier in different aspects; and the most difficult thing to consider is if you’re moving to the right direction, the right country and to be sure that you’re making the best decision, by moving.
Several trips may show you a wide panorama to make your decision; by experiencing other cultures, places and climates you’ll figure out how it’s like to live in other countries. Another important thing is that you and your family or friends (if you’re not moving alone) have basic knowledge of portuguese language, if not; to study portuguese in few courses will be pretty helpful.
