Living the Dream – The Book

Out Now!

Something to help you pass the time away in isolation … my new book is now available to purchase on Amazon.

‘Living the Dream – in the Algarve, Portugal’

The story of one couple’s move from the UK to live in the sun.

From propositioning a builder, to battling bureaucracy, and adapting to a slower pace of life in the sunshine; this is the refreshingly honest and often hilarious account of one couple’s move from the rainy UK to the sunny Algarve in Portugal.

Alyson and Dave Sheldrake were determined to realise their dream of living abroad; so they ended their jobs, packed up everything they owned and moved to the Algarve to start a new life. Follow them as they battle with the Portuguese language, set up their own businesses, adopt a rescue dog and navigate the ‘expat’ world.

Part guidebook, mostly memoir; this book is for anyone who has ever wondered what moving abroad is really like; and is essential reading for anyone considering moving to Portugal.

The book is available in paperback, Large Print Edition, and eBook version.

Available now on Amazon.

I have been wanting to write this book for so long; we have lived in this beautiful place for nine years now and love it here. I am delighted that I can finally share this with you all and I hope that you enjoy reading the book and finding out more about our adventures here in the Algarve.
