“There’s No Place Like…”

You thought, “Home” right? Me too. Just think about all the things said about it: Any place you hang your hat is it, it’s where the heart is, and so on.

We’ll be leaving our home in a couple of weeks, which some of my buddies know, but for those who don’t, here’s the official announcement: on July 18th, we’ll say goodbye to Woodland View Drive. The new owners are delightful, will be a great addition to the community, and we wish them well.

You may be wondering, “Where are they going?” I’ve recently driven from Utah to California to Arizona and home, and looked at some places. One was a bit of a fixer-upper:

About Tricia Pimental

Brooklyn-born Tricia Pimental moved to Portugal in 2012, where she found rural life so idyllic she wrote a piece for the Living the Dream section of International Living Magazine. Today she serves as their Portugal Correspondent. The former actress and Toastmaster has written three award-winning books: Rabbit Trail: How a Former Playboy Bunny Found Her Way, Slippery Slopes, and A Movable Marriage. Other writing credits include two travel books for International Living: The Old-World Charms of Portugal and Escape to Portugal, and a 15-part video series entitled Portugal 101. Tricia has discovered one of the best parts about living in Europe is the ability to sample the culture (especially all that food and beverage) of many countries via road trips. She and her husband Keith—and their intrepid Maltese, Carson—have traveled through Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, and more, as well as Ireland, Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Balkans. After renting in various regions of the country, Tricia and Keith now own a quinta in central Portugal. She blogs at www.triciapimental.com.
