Living the Dream – Time Speeds Up

I feel time speeding up as I live my dream in Portugal. Part of that dream included more traveling now that I have easier access to European destinations, reading more books, taking more walks.

And then there are my general retirement goals of more time for genealogy research and posting my research to Cherokee Roots blog. Plus, staying in contact with all of the extended family relationships I have discovered with my genealogy research and following up on our shared leads.

There is at least one story in me pressing to become a book, the story of my grandmother’s life. So much other writing I intended to do during this time, including posting more often to this blog!

For today, I am going to post photos from some of the travel that has kept me busy the last two months.

One follow-up note to my previous post before the photos – I was granted non-habitual resident status and am now searching for a local accountant to assist in filing my Portugal tax form this month. Starting to feel anxious about that as I am having trouble finding someone. More about that next month after I have hopefully filed my tax form for Portugal!
